Report: Toyota to market in-home chargers in 2012

The Toyota Plug-in Prius won't be hitting dealer showrooms until 2012. Before that happens, Toyota is getting ready to produce an "add-on" for the vehicle, but it's one you don't take with the car. What are we talking about? An in-home charging station.
Priced up to $2,045 (200,000 Yen) if you include installation, two charging stations will be available: one mounted to an exterior wall and one intended to stay inside a garage.

The chargers will reportedly be compatible with other vehicle makes (assuming they use the same plug standards, we'd guess...) and the automaker is expecting to sell between 20,000 and 30,000 in the first year alone. That's a lot of electrification, no?
