Toyota recently got the OK to go into the plug-in game in Japan, and now the super-best number one awesome automaker from the land of the rising sun's looking to do the same in France. Toyota and Electricite de France SA (EDF) are working together to "evaluate Plug-in Hybrid Vehicles in Europe." Why's Toyota need EDF's help? Well, no plug-in technology's going to be considered viable unless there's an infrastructure set up for plugging in the cars. Word on the street is that although EDF's deal with Toyota is expected to cover France at first it could be extended to other countries. Maybe this was the "innovation" Toyota was talking about in their Frankfurt Auto Show press release from a few days ago. Or maybe we'll just have to wait until the Tokyo Auto Show to know for sure. Full press release below the jump.
