Google Maps finally offers routes for electric cars

Google Maps is currently working on a new electric car project. In particular, the latter should offer personalized routes for all users of this type of vehicle.

Google Maps is clearly very concerned about the quality that its application offers its users. For example, Google recently decided to inform its users about the true costs of a route by displaying toll prices. Always with this in mind to improve its service for good, Google Maps is also currently launching innovations that are more or less focused on ecology and energy saving. In the latest versions of Google Maps on smartphone or Android Auto, the application now allows you to choose between different types of routes, with for example:

  • a shorter and more convenient route than the others offered.
  • the most fuel-efficient route.

These innovations have quite enticed the users of the application and Google Maps will continue its momentum and offer soon route calculations specially designed for electric car users. Google Maps is currently working on this new feature and it should be available soon.

Electric cars now have a personalized route on Google Maps

Google Maps will therefore offer routes specifically intended for electric cars. Depending on the application, the optimal routes for electric vehicles differ from those optimal for vehicles with thermal engines, taking into account the same starting point and destination. So there should be a new option in the application soon, with which it is possible to indicate with which type of vehicle you want to travel the desired route.

In this way, Google Maps can suggest the most efficient route depending on the vehicle you own. This new feature was discovered during the teardown of the latest beta version of Google Maps (version 11.39). However, this does not mean that you can find it in the beta version, as the latter is not yet available to the public. Note that Google hasn’t announced the completion of this new feature yet, and the tech giant hasn’t even officially talked about it yet.
