Google Maps Adds EV Charging Stations to Map

Quick Find a plug to charge your EV

Google Maps will also include a rundown of helpful information about the charging stations, including where it is, what types of ports are available, their charging speeds, and how many of them there are.

New features are consistently added to the app thanks to updates from Google.

Searching for "ev charging stations" will bring up a map view of nearby stations, let you scroll through a list off them, and then tap on individual stations to find out more info.

If you're out on the road in the future and find your electric vehicle is in dire need of a charge, you'll soon be able to look to Google Maps for help finding a charging station. If you're located in the US, you'll be able to find SemaConnect, EVgo, and Blink stations; for Uk drivers, you can find Chargemaster and Pod Point stations; and finally for anyone residing in Australia or New Zealand, you'll be able to locate any and all Chargefox stations.
