BMW Group plug-ins will be able to find available nearby charging points.

The technology will offer drivers real-time route-planning, based on the remaining battery range and real-time availability of nearby charging points. This will be rolled out across BMW, Mini and Rolls-Royce models, alongside TomTom’s live traffic data and cloud-based re-routing technology.

Antoine Saucier, managing director at TomTom Automotive, said: “TomTom’s vision is a safe, connected and autonomous world, free of congestion and emissions. The introduction of TomTom Live Traffic, Online Routing and Electric Vehicle Services into BMW vehicles is a huge step forwards to achieve this goal.”
