WeaveGrid integrating with Toyota and Lexus BEVs and PHEVs

WeaveGrid, a software company with a managed charging platform, 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 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.

Toyota BEV and PHEV owners who enroll in WeaveGrid-powered programs with participating utilities are eligible to earn direct incentives and additional benefits from their electric utility company.

For example:

  • Xcel Energy customers enrolled in the Optimize Your Charge program in Colorado, Minnesota, and New Mexico can earn a $50 annual bill credit, on top of daily savings from off-peak rates.

  • Baltimore Gas & Electric (BGE) enrolled customers in Maryland can access discounted charging and save about $150 per year through the EVsmart program.

All enrolled participants across utility programs receive tailored insights about their charging and suggestions on how to save money on charging over time through a personalized dashboard.
