Now Our Parking Lot Has an Electric Vehicle Charging Station

No.2013_01 [ September 13, 2013 ]

It’s ready!

The US is a world leader in promoting the use of electric vehicles, and gradually more and more are being sold. Inspired by this, PIOLAX America has installed a charging station in the parking lot.

The US government is strongly encouraging businesses and individuals to switch to electric vehicles. Currently, purchasers of electric vehicles can receive a $5000 tax benefit, and businesses can receive subsidies for most of the cost to install charging stations.

PIOLAX America started manufacturing parts for electric vehicle lithium-ion batteries in 2012.
The decision to install a charging station was not motivated only by the convenience for employees who need to charge their EVs. It also had to do with promoting the spread of electric vehicles and supporting the staff who make the parts.
