Google Maps improves satisfaction with your electric car
Saving with an electric car depending on the model you buy and where you live is very fashionable these days, plus you can reduce your carbon footprint pretty quickly.
In recent years there have been a number of high-profile electric vehicles, from the Tesla Model S to the id.4. With many models that exceed 400 km of autonomy, electric vehicles seem increasingly practical and versatile. And with gas prices on the rise, they’re also looking cheaper.
In those, and for improve our satisfaction behind the wheel, Google Maps has wanted to adapt to this series of vehicles so that we not only have a more pleasant drive, but also more efficient and safer when traveling on the road.
all we have nowIn this way, as we can take advantage of from now on, Google Maps already provides environmentally friendly routes that, instead of reaching the destination faster, they don’t consume as much electricity of your electric vehicle, or save fuel on that hybrid you use to go to work or on vacation.
Thus, what it offers in its map service is to adapt to the new needs of drivers of 100% electric cars with a system that is already available in vehicles that incorporate this technology. From now on depending on the level of battery and fateGoogle Maps will recommend the charging stops and corresponding charging levels that will minimize the total journey time.
To achieve this, the company has developed a highly scalable solution to recommend efficient routes through charging stations, which optimizes the sum of the time of driving and charging time.
Likewise, drivers of an electric car will be able to filter charging stations from the Google Maps application depending on connector type, giving the possibility of specifying one or several favorites. Or the user may be interested filter by upload speed. In that case, they can use available filters, such as 50 kW or faster, 150 kW or more.
We can filter the stations according to the type of connector or charging speed
However, in addition, with Google Maps we can also create a list of stations charging stations near your home, the office or your place of rest. In this way, every time you need it, you will only have to access the list without having to search for all the nearby possibilities.
Or if we are planning a trip, we can use the filters to find charging stations that are open at any time, or at a specific time or day. So we can establish, for example, that we are looking for a station with a charging speed of 150 kW, which has connectors compatible with our car and which is open any day and time.
This will also make it stand out for the hybrid and electric carswhere the morphology of the route and the maximum and average speeds have a lot to do with it.
