Tokyo Electric Power Co (TEPCO), Japan’s largest utility, plans to set up as many as 200 recharging stations for electric cars around the Japanese capital next year. TEPCO has developed a charging device that would allow electric cars to travel 25-miles on a 5-minute charge and 37-miles on a 10-minute charge. Mitsubishi as well as Subaru dealers have agreed to place stations on their property, as well as Aeon, a supermarket chain. Continued plans will include car parks, convenience stores, banks and post offices. TEPCO aims to have 1000 charging stations in place in the next three years.
