Google Maps Will Now Find You The Nearest EV Charging Station

If you’re the type of person who owns or drives an EV and still gets range anxiety, you’ll be pleased to know that you can now find your way to the nearest EV charging station with the help of the Google Maps app.

EV Charging support is available effective immediately in both iOS as well as Android apps, with desktop support for those who don’t have the app installed on a mobile device said to be coming in a few weeks.

According to Google, you can also look up specific charging networks depending on which country you’re in. For example, the app will display SemaConnect, EVgo and Blink stations in the U.S., Chargemaster and Pod Point in the UK, Chargefox in Australia and New Zealand, and of course Tesla and Chargepoint globally.

In order to get started, all you have to do is update the app and then do a quick keyword search like “EV charging” or “EV charging stations”, and you will immediately be informed about the nearest supported stations.

“To help you make a quick decision about which station to use, we’ll show you information about the business where the station is located, the types of ports available, charging speeds, and how many ports there are,” stated the tech giant.

While browsing through these options, you will also be able to see information regarding the station from other drivers, including photos, ratings, reviews and questions – something we imagine will definitely come in handy in today’s review-prone society.

Unfortunately, unlike other services, the app cannot yet tell you which individual charging stalls are occupied.
