TOKYO -- Japan's capital will more than double certain subsidies for residential electrical-vehicle chargers next year as part of an effort to increase the number available at apartment buildings 150-fold in less than a decade, albeit from a low base.

New apartment towers will also be required to have EV chargers starting in fiscal 2025 -- the first such mandate anywhere in Japan.
