New Fastned trip planner provides routing and charging instructions for EV drivers
Netherlands fast-charging specialist Fastned has launched a trip planner that enables electric vehicle drivers to plan the fastest route to their destination, including fast charging stops.
Currently in beta phase, the Fastned trip planner is available on mobile, tablet and desktop and provides exact driving and charging instructions for drivers to reach their destination with sufficient range left.
The optimal route is calculated based on the range and efficiency of the car, traffic, the location of all Fastned stations and the charging curve of the Fastned fast chargers. In addition, the navigation tool is automatically updated when new Fastned stations are added to the network.
Michiel Langezaal, CEO of Fastned, said: “Fastned is continuously improving the experience of electric driving and charging. In recent years we have worked hard to expand the number of fast-charging stations and ensure that chargers will always work. The Fastned trip planner will make electric driving and fast-charging at Fastned even easier. And the more you use Fastned, the cheaper it gets. With the Fastned Power price plan you can fast charge throughout the Netherlands for just 19 cent per kWh.”
The Routeplanner is available at route.fastned.nl (desktop, tablet and mobile) and in the Fastned app (iOS and Android). The English language version is available under ‘menu’.For more of the latest industry news, click here.
