New Updates and Features

1. Unrivaled Search Power: Locate an NACS Charger Port in Seconds

Google’s EV tech cuts through the BS very quickly and can find you a charger in a snap. The NACS charger port is the industry standard across the vast majority of EVs, so whether you’re looking for one of those or a fast charging station, you’ll be able to find one no matter where you are through Google Maps.

2. Details at Your Fingertips

As we mentioned earlier, pricing, reliability, and wait times are all laid out for you. There’s detailed, real-time data on every charging station, meaning you can make informed decisions based on what’s going on right now. An AI that gives your car exactly what it needs.

3. Predictive Analytics

We understand we’re not an AI company. We just appreciate a great EV tool. And if you want accurate estimates on wait times and peak usage periods for your favorite EV charger, you should probably use Google Maps.

All you have to do is plug in your destination and add your charging stops along the way.

It also allows you to plan your journey based on the estimated charge your battery can hold, and add stops at recharging stations accordingly.

How Does It Work?

By stealing user data. Just kidding. You technically agree to it when you accept the terms and conditions. Anyway, their AI gathers the user data – meaning feedback, location information, real-time sensors, and historical patterns – to give you top notch recommendations. It’s as real as it gets, numbers-wise. And the best part is, this AI is getting better every single day, meaning so are your charger recommendations.
