New technology to provide EV drivers with the most optimal route to a destination, including charging time, has been unveiled.

Here Technologies has a new routing feature that takes into account topography, road geometry, real-time traffic information, and traffic patterns, while planning trips.

This feature can be synced to the consumption model of the vehicle and can be adjusted to different driving styles, loads or weather conditions. This new innovation is designed to give EV drivers greater peace of mind.

Commenting on the launch Jussi Koski, VP product management at Here Technologies, said: “EV Routing does more than show you the way to a charging station.

“It provides the most optimal route, including charging times, while taking into account static and dynamic data such as charging speed or real-time traffic conditions.

“Not only is EV Routing based on a wide range of parameters, it can also be customised. With EV Routing, Here goes beyond removing range anxiety and makes EV driving a truly personalised experience”.

EV Routing leverages Here EV Charge Points, a database that includes vehicle brand, real-time availability of charging stations, subscription and pricing information.
