E.V. is the future of mobility. As most major car manufacturers in the world are working on electric vehicle development, Google Maps has added a new feature that lets a user search and find electric car charging stations. When a user searches for a place to charge the vehicle, the options also specify the plugs in the filter bar. However, since the World is currently in the transitory phase of upgrading to electric vehicles, only a few outlets will feature CHAdeMO and CCS charging plugs. These details are particularly helpful in the international market as manufacturers like Jaguar and BMW use CCS, while the likes of Mitsubishi and Nissan use CHAdeMO.
It was towards the end of 2018 when Google Maps introduced this feature for finding nearby EV charging points. In April 2019, Google added a feature that displays whether a charging station is currently in use. With more electric cars scheduled to be introduced in the World market, Google is likely to introduce an update for the world market which will specify the plugs in the filter bar.
