When guests purchase an all-new, all-electric RZ 450e crossover from Lexus dealers, they’ll be offered several ways to enhance their battery-electric ownership through an elevated charging experience. Lexus announced today it will work with Charge Point, Inc. a leading public EV charging network and provider of home charging equipment, and Qmerit, a home charger installation and EV integration solutions provider, to offer home chargers, installation services, and a vast network of public charging EV stations.
With the Lexus RZ 450e arriving at dealerships soon, we want to ensure our guests have a seamless charging experience both at home and on the road,” said Dejuan Ross, Lexus group vice president and general manager. “Our arrangement with Charge Point and Qmerit was created to provide RZ guests with tools and services to help them to understand, identify and solve their charging needs so they can feel confident in their Lexus Electrified journey.”
For many RZ 450e guests, home will become the primary charging location for their vehicle. To help support a home charging experience, participating Lexus dealers will offer an option to purchase a Charge Point Home Flex Level 2 charger at the dealership or directly from Charge Point online. Charge Point Home Flex is ENERGY STAR® certified and Wi-Fi enabled, can be installed indoors or outdoors, and comes with a 23-foot charging cable to support different parking configurations. With the Charge Point Home Flex connected charger, electric vehicles can be charged up to nine times faster than a standard outlet. The home charger can charge up to 25 miles of range per hour and fully charge the battery when plugged in overnight.
“As transportation continues to electrify, we have been steadfast in our commitment to make it easy for drivers to charge their EVs, whenever and wherever they are,” said Michael Hughes, chief revenue officer of Charge Point. “Through this arrangement, Lexus drivers will benefit from the simplicity of having access to all of their charging information, across public and home charging, when using Home Flex and the Charge Point network.”
