Lexus Offers Home, Public EV Charging Stations
Lexus is providing drivers of its all-electric RZ 450e crossover with access to ChargePoint’s home and public charging solutions.
Lexus dealers will offer customers the option to purchase a ChargePoint® Home Flex Level 2 charger at the dealership or online. The Home Flex is an ENERGY STAR® certified and Wi-Fi-enabled home charger that enables drivers to charge up to nine times faster than a standard wall outlet.
“With the Lexus RZ 450e arriving at dealerships soon, we want to help our guests have a seamless charging experience both at home and on the road,” said Dejuan Ross, Lexus group vice president and general manager, in a statement. "Our arrangement with ChargePoint and Qmerit was created to provide RZ guests with tools and services to help them understand, identify and solve their charging needs so they can feel confident in their Lexus Electrified journey.”
The ChargePoint® Home Flex Level 2 charger can be installed indoors or out, and it comes with a 23-foot charging cable to support a variety of parking configurations. Using the ChargePoint mobile app, drivers can schedule charging times when energy is cheapest, adjust their charging speed, and get reminders to plug in.
Drivers can also find public places to charge through their smartphone, with access to ChargePoint’s expansive network of Level 2 and DC fast chargers, and roaming partner stations; together, which encompass more than 80% of charging spots in North America.
