British Gas and Toyota launch Toyota HomeCharge


British Gas has expanded its partnership with Toyota to launch Toyota HomeCharge, the first domestic wallbox chargepoint designed exclusively for the vehicle manufacturer’s electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles.

Toyota retail customers who order a new electric car or van between 3 April and 1 July 2024 will receive a free charging solution, including the installation of its ABB Terra 3 home charger and associated maintenance service by qualified British Gas engineers.

Customers who order their new electric vehicle after this period will be able to purchase Toyota HomeCharge for £1,095 at any nationwide Toyota centre and charging installations will start in May.

Drivers will be able to manage their charging requirements in the MyToyota app as well as set personalised schedules to charge at a time when energy is cheaper.

British Gas and Toyota have had a strategic partnership over the past three years to help accelerate the adoption of EVs in the UK.

During this time, the energy provider has installed more than 1,500 Hive EV chargers at Toyota and Lexus customers’ homes.

Lloyd Wilson, General Manager of Electrification at Toyota (GB) said, “We are looking forward to our successful collaboration with British Gas moving to the next level with the introduction of Toyota and Lexus-branded HomeCharge wallboxes.

“HomeCharge is designed to work with both our MyToyota and Lexus Link+ Apps and our wide range of electrified models – both cars and vans – to give our customers a convenient, reliable and flexible means of charging their vehicle at home.”

Kim Royds, Head of Mobility at Centrica, said, “Access to at-home charging remains one of the key barriers to electric vehicle adoption and our long-term partnership with Toyota is designed to tackle this.”
