Advanced vehicle charging station search.
It turns out that Google Maps will display now points where the nearest electric vehicle charging stations are located. The function will certainly not impress those drivers who drive cars with engines based on fossil fuels. However, a handful of "electricians" should be delighted.
The giant from Moutain View is not limited to selecting stations. Google was also tempted to filter the results by … plugin standard. There will be six of these to choose from – J1772, CCS (Combo 1), Type 2, CCS (Combo 2), CHAdeMO and Tesla. There is no denying that this option can make life much easier for drivers.
Someone may criticize Google's actions as "premature". Without taking any steps, however, it is difficult to talk about progress in the development of the electric car market – so it's nice that the company is doing something in this direction now.
