G-Station II is a charging station for electric vehicles (EVs) and plug-in hybrid vehicles (PHVs). Toyota Motor Corporation began selling it in conjunction with the development of the Prius PHV in 2011. This station allows you to charge any of the main Japanese electric automobiles using any type of charging service card, and not just a special IC card. So far, it has been installed at roughly 4,300 locations across Japan, including Toyota dealers and shopping malls, providing comfort and peace of mind for customers who drive PHVs and EVs. Station operators are given G-Station Manager, a management system, that can be used to view usage history and monitor the operations of the charging station.

After your PHV Charging Support Card is authenticated, you can use a rapid charger or standard charger operated by the Toyota dealer or Nippon Charge Service (NCS). Both new and used cars can use the service as long as they are compatible.
