Blink Charging Co., a owner, operator and provider of electric vehicle (EV) charging station products and networked EV charging services, announced that it has teamed up with Google Maps to assist EV drivers in locating its charging stations.
Google Maps is launching a new feature that brings electric vehicle (EV) charging stations to its map. As part of this effort, Blink has worked with Google Maps to ensure Blink charging stations and relevant information about these stations is available to Google Map users on Android, iOS, and desktops globally.
Now, a quick search for keywords such as “ev charging” or “EV charging stations” will display the nearest supported stations. Additional information such as the business where the station is located, charging speed, as well as the types and quantities of ports available will be available directly within the map.
“We’re excited to work with Google Maps to make it easier to find Blink charging stations in the US. With more than one billion monthly active users of Google Maps services, this addition will enable Blink to reach even more EV drivers as they navigate and explore the world,” stated Blink’s Founder and Executive Chairman Michael D. Farkas.
