Toyota has named British Gas as its preferred supplier of electric vehicle charging points, ahead of introducing the new Prius Plug-in Hybrid to the UK in 2012.
British Gas will be offering Toyota’s fleet and retail customers a range of products as part of the co-operation, including a free charge site survey, giving advice on the best way to equip their home for electric vehicle charging.
The installation options include a dedicated circuit with a three-pin socket, costing from £275, and a purpose-designed charging unit priced from £799.
Customers will be offered finance options to spread the cost if required.
British Gas will also be offering fleet users both post and wall-mounted charging points with double sockets.
Jon Williams, Toyota GB managing director, said: "In order for our customers to maximise the benefits of Prius Plug-in Hybrid, and Toyota’s future electric vehicles, it is crucial that they have access to the appropriate charging infrastructure, and the right professional advice and support.
"British Gas has the experience, skills and resources to provide the high quality products and services Toyota owners should expect."
