Waze’s new feature is likely to be a hit with EV owners, as it will help them find chargers quickly and easily en route. This is especially helpful for those who may not have access to an outlet at their usual stop.
Adding a charger to your route can help make your trip more efficient, but be sure to read the directions carefully and follow the correct plug type. Waze is working with community map editors who will review and update information about chargers on the app.
EV charging stations are becoming increasingly popular, and with good reason. By adding up-to-date EV charging information to the Waze map, drivers can find chargers easily and get help finding where or when they’ll come across the next station. With more people driving electric vehicles, this information is essential in helping drivers find their way without being distracted by a cumbersome phone screen.
As drivers use the map to navigate their routes, it is important that the data is as accurate and up-to-date as possible. Thanks to local Map Editors from our Waze Community, EV data is reviewed and updated in real-time to provide the most accurate, comprehensive information to the map. This ensures that drivers have access to the most reliable information when planning routes, no matter where they are in the world.

Google’s encroachment into the automotive industry continues with its newest update to the Maps app. This update allows EV owners to more easily find charging stations based on the type of plug their vehicle uses. Additionally, Google has begun integrating features like eco-friendly routes into some EVs from manufacturers such as Volvo, General Motors and Renault. These updates are indicative of Google’s growing interest in automotive manufacturing and technology.
With the merger of Google Maps and Waze teams, analysts speculated that the search giant was working on some type of ambitious project. However, no concrete information has surfaced yet about what this project may be. What is known is that Google is constantly looking for ways to cut costs and improve efficiency, so it makes sense that they would combine two of their most
