SAN FRANCISCO, Feb. 22, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- WeaveGrid, a software company whose managed charging platform enables rapid electric vehicle (EV) adoption on the electric grid, today announced a collaboration for direct integration with Toyota Motor North America (Toyota) for both Toyota and Lexus battery electric vehicles (BEVs) and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs). WeaveGrid's direct integration with Toyota, now active in select utility territories across the US and expanding to others soon, delivers significant charging-related benefits for BEV and PHEV owners and for the electric grid by allowing them to save money while charging their vehicles while also contributing to a cleaner, more resilient electric grid.

The collaboration leverages WeaveGrid's intelligent software platform to work in concert with the telematics systems on certain Toyota and Lexus BEV/PHEV vehicles to provide actionable EV load management capabilities to the country's largest electric utilities. The result is a system that enables drivers to opt into charging optimization, personalized driver insights, and home charging cost savings.

"WeaveGrid is thrilled to collaborate with Toyota, a global automotive leader, to offer innovative solutions we both believe will help accelerate the transition to decarbonized transportation," said Apoorv Bhargava, Co-founder and CEO of WeaveGrid. "At WeaveGrid, we are committed to making EV adoption easier and more sustainable for everyone. This work with Toyota is a major step forward in achieving that goal."

"Working with WeaveGrid will allow Toyota to play a larger role in defining this home energy ecosystem and ensure that the home charging experience benefits both the customer and society."
