Japan's first coin-op EV charging machine costs a pretty penny

May we some day see a desperate electric vehicle driver begging the local drugstore to break a dollar so he can get home? Maybe, at least in Japan. What's believed to be the world's first coin-operated electric-vehicle charging machine is being produced by Fuji Electric, Green Car Reports says, citing Japan For Sustainability. The machines allow those without smart cards or pre-registration agreements to get some EV juice by plugging the machine with change.

The coin-op machine costs about $7,300 more than a typical EV charging machine.
