LAcarGUY Pioneered Free EV Charging in Los Angeles

July 6th, 2018 by

EV Charging

Back in November of 2010, Toyota of Hollywood and Toyota Santa Monica became the first dealerships to offer free electric car charging stations to the community. This focus on sustainable energy and green vehicles has been in our DNA for years, and we’re proud to have pioneered the free EV charging movement in Los Angeles.

How EV Charging Stations Work

Our charging stations are equipped with Clipper Creek technology. This technology is designed to charge all modern electric vehicles, including the Nissan LEAF, Chevy Volt, and Toyota Prius Plug-in Hybrid — so even if you don’t drive one of our Toyota models, you are welcome to charge up your electric vehicle at our dealership. We will always keep our stations updated as needed for any future plug-in electric vehicles that hit the market.

Why Free Community EV Charging

As part of our dedication to the LA clean energy community, we’re proud to offer free electric vehicle charging. This free service is a token of our gratitude to drivers like you that do your part to keep the environment clean, healthy, and preserved for future generations of Angelinos.

Electric Car Charging Stations

Since we opened our free station back in 2010, LA has seen a boom in EV charging stations. Plenty of resources exist online for you to find EV charging stations near you. We recommend ChargeHub for when you’re in a pinch and need a charge ASAP.

More on our Environmental Focus

We are also proud to support the Environmental Media Association, an organization dedicated to the promotion of environmentalism in mainstream culture, the Hollywood Central Park Project, and a variety of other environmental initiatives in the Los Angeles region.
