100% of charging energy matched with renewable energy.

Clean Assist allows eligible All-Electric Vehicle owners nationwide and Plug-In Hybrid Vehicle owners in California to offset their vehicle charging with 100% renewable energy—no matter where the vehicles are plugged in. And there's no cost to participate in the program.

How it Works

STEP 1

Owners of eligible vehicles can opt into the Toyota Clean Assist program through the Toyota App.

STEP 2

The Toyota App then tracks the amount of the electricity used during charging and calculates the net emissions produced by charging.

STEP 3

Toyota then generates, or buys, an equivalent amount of Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs), ensuring that all charging activity is matched with zero-carbon electricity.

FAQs

What are the different types of electrified vehicles?

Electrified vehicles come in four flavors: hybrid, plug-in hybrid, fuel cell, and all-electric (referred to as Battery EVs, BEVs, or simply EVs).

 

Toyota offers a wide range of hybrids and plug-in hybrids, as well as the fuel cell Mirai in California, and the all-electric bZ4X. Discover this growing lineup at toyota.com/electrified.

Why drive an all-electric vehicle?

Three words: convenience, fun and savings.

 

All-electric vehicles can be conveniently charged at home, overnight and on-demand, as well as at public charging stations when out and about. No more trips to the gas station needed.

 

They’re also fun to drive, thanks to the immediate torque response from the electric motors, as well as the smooth acceleration and quiet cabin.

 

Drivers won’t just save money by avoiding the gas pump, either—they may also be able to enjoy federal and state incentives, as well as the potential long-term maintenance savings typical of an all-electric powertrain.

 

And as icing on the cake, driving an all-electric vehicle can also help the environment by reducing CO2 emissions.

What is the all-electric vehicle driving experience like?

Thanks to the use of electric motors instead of internal combustion engines, all-electric vehicles provide smooth acceleration, immediate torque response and a surprisingly quiet ride experience.

How far will an all-electric vehicle go?

The driving range of an all-electric vehicle will vary depending on how/where you drive, charging habits, accessory use, outside temperature and other factors. Battery capacity also decreases with time and use, which will reduce range.

What can impact driving range?

All-electric driving range may decrease significantly depending on speed, outside temperature, accessory use, how/where you drive, charging habits, and other factors. Battery capacity also decreases with time and use which will reduce range.

Where can I charge an all-electric vehicle?

All-electric vehicles can be charged at home with Level 1 or Level 2 charging solutions, or at public charging stations with Level 2 and Level 3.

 

Many public charging networks, like ChargePoint and EVgo, further simplify the charging process by providing app-based charger access and payment.

What are the different charging levels?

There are three different all-electric vehicle charging levels.

Level 1 is the basic charging solution. Primarily for home use, Level 1 charging cables plug directly into a standard wall outlet. They are usually included with the vehicle and are totally portable, so they can go where you and your vehicle go. This is the slowest option, however, with all-electric vehicles requiring days to reach a full charge. Because of this charging time, Level 1 is best used with plug-in hybrids.

Level 2 is a more powerful AC charging solution that is commonly found both at home and at public charging stations. Level 2 chargers are ideal for charging all-electric vehicles overnight, but for home use, the equipment must be purchased and installed by a licensed electrician.

Level 3 is also known as “DC Fast Charging,” and usually can be the quickest charging solution.  This is partially because it outputs DC electricity, which means the vehicle doesn’t need to convert incoming AC first. Level 3 is not practical for residential use and is only found at select public charging stations. Charge time will vary widely depending on outside temperature and other factors. DC Fast Charging is only available for bZ4X at this time.

How do I charge an all-electric vehicle?

The actual fill-up process is similar to that of a gasoline vehicle—simply insert the connector into the vehicle and charging will begin. In fact, most all-electric vehicles will also allow you to set a charging schedule to take advantage of varying electricity rates throughout the day.

 

This charging process can vary depending on equipment and location. Watch the how-to video on this page to learn more.

How do I monitor and manage my charging?

For Toyota vehicles with active Connected Services trials or subscriptions, the Toyota app is the best resource for home-charging management. It offers great tools and insights, including vehicle range, charging scheduling, tracking charging status and costs, and more.

 

The Toyota app can also be used to find public charging locations, as well as handle charging and payment at select network stations.

 

You can also monitor your charging—including battery level and estimated range—through the Multi-Information Display (MID) and central touchscreen in your vehicle.

 

It’s important to note that any estimated vehicle range calculations shown are based on previous usage patterns and may not accurately predict the vehicle range.
