HERE Technologies makes EV driving a more seamless, personalized experience

Range anxiety is a key concern for many drivers.

Therefore, ensuring easy and fast access to chargepoints is essential to persuading drivers to switch to EV vehicles. At the same time, many players in the ride-hailing industry have pledged to electrify their whole fleets and some countries have committed to banning sales of conventional petrol and diesel engine cars. With that in mind, HERE Technologies is unveiling a new EV Routing feature to optimize both private and commercial electric vehicle routing while minimizing the number of charging stops and reducing battery charging times, based on the vehicle’s consumption model.

EV Routing takes into account topography, road geometry, real time traffic information and traffic patterns while planning trips. It can be synced to the consumption model of the vehicle and can be adjusted to different driving styles, loads or weather conditions. EV Routing is a feature of a routing API built on top of HERE map and is included in Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) products. It also leverages HERE EV Charge Points, a database that includes vehicle brand, real time availability of charging stations, subscription and pricing information.
