Google is on roll and now Google Maps has now the feature for searching for electric vehicle charging stations.
Google Maps now features search for EV charging points
Starting today, you can see the real time availability of charging ports in the U.S. and U.K, right from Google Maps,so you can know if chargers are available before you head to a station. Simply search for “ev charging stations” to see up to date information from networks like Chargemaster, EVgo, SemaConnect and soon, Chargepoint.
You’ll then see how many ports are currently available, along with other helpful details, like the business where the station is located, port types and charging speeds. You’ll also see information about the station from other drivers, including photos, ratings, reviews and questions
How to search for EV charging stations
When you search for charging stations, a new plug dropdown menu appears in the filter bar. Here, you can tell Google Maps what exact plugs you want to search for (e.g. the plugs available on your car), and the results will be trimmed down to match.
