Today, we’re introducing Mapbox for EV, an end-to-end solution for electric vehicles (EV) that consistently and reliably routes cars based on accurate range calculations, helps drivers find optimal charge points, and enables payment directly from a vehicle’s infotainment screen or mobile companion app.
EV drivers face a steep learning curve when searching and paying for EV charging. When planning for a long trip, many EV drivers manually search for charge points across multiple mobile apps to determine the ideal charging stops out of dozens of options.

They take longer detours to reach the charger and they charge longer than required. Once at a charging location, chargers are oftentimes hard to find or not functional. Payment is complex, requiring customers to download multiple mobile apps, create an account for each and remember which app to use for which EV charging network.
