Policy & Regulation

The new government mandate will also require installation of EV chargers with a minimum output of about 150 kW in high-traffic areas

The Japanese government plans to roll out a new mandate aimed at more than doubling the power output of electric vehicle chargers installed on the country’s highway in order to reduce charging duration and encourage the adoption of EVs, according to a news report published by Nikkei Asia on August 7.
