In the coming months, Sygic will release a series of features and innovative technologies for drivers and carmakers, addressing the biggest challenges of electromobility – range and charging anxieties.
Sygic, the global navigation leader trusted by more than 200 million drivers has partnered with Plugsurfing, Europe’s largest charging network provider with over 150,000 charging points in 38 countries.
“Plugsurfing is an important partner for cooperation on innovative sophisticated solutions in the area of eMobility. Upcoming products and services aim to help electric vehicle drivers with everyday challenges,” said Petr Fuzek, Vice President of eMobility at Sygic.
According to the Community Research and Development Information Service (CORDIS), charging infrastructure is the most important factor in electric vehicle adoption, along with consumer incentives and raising awareness. All this plays an important role in range and charging anxiety.
“As a trusted navigation provider with innovative route planners and the capability of smartphone-to-dash connectivity, we are prepared to address these challenges,” added Fuzek.
“Plugsurfing has become a European leader and has built a strong community around electric mobility due to our dedicated focus on making charging easy for the driver. In cooperation with Sygic, we will be able to introduce solutions that address the most critical needs of electric vehicle drivers,” said Adam Woolway, Co-founder and Managing Director of Plugsurfing.
Sygic will introduce the first eMobility solution for Sygic GPS Navigation at the beginning of May 2020.
