Recharging While Parking
If electric vehicles (EVs) are to become adopted widely, it will be necessary to increase recharging facilities. At the same time, while it’s important to reduce the time required for recharging, it is unlikely that the time can be shortened to about 5 minutes, which is the time needed to fill a car’s tank with gasoline. From around two years ago, more parking lots began installing recharger units for EVs. Times 24 company, a major operator of pay parking lots, currently offers recharger units in 85 of its facilities in the greater Tokyo area.
