Parkopedia has expanded its partnership with BMW Group to provide additional EV Point of Interest (POI) data, helping EV drivers make informed decisions about when and where to charge their vehicles. The new functionality offers photos, ratings, precise location, charging speed, connector type, and dynamic data like availability and operational status. Parkopedia now covers Spain, Italy, Belgium, and Luxembourg, in addition to Germany, France, the Netherlands, Austria, and Switzerland. This aims to alleviate stress from the charging process, helping drivers select locations that best suit their needs.

According to the 2023 Parkopedia Global Driver Survey, over 90% of EV drivers feel anxious about charging, with 60% considering charging information accuracy as “very important” or “extremely important”. Additionally, 77% of drivers would prefer a vehicle that provides information about public EV charging and enables them to navigate directly to specific charging locations. This shows that EV drivers want accurate and complete information on public charging locations to simplify daily use or the transition to EVs.

Commenting on the new features, Hans Puvogel, Parkopedia COO, Today, more than 90% of EV drivers feel anxious about charging, with 44% having run out of charge. Consequently, nearly half of drivers who state they wouldn’t own an EV cite being worried about finding charging away from home as the main reason. This new service with BMW Group demonstrates Parkopedia’s commitment to improving the charging experience for EV drivers and we will shortly combine this with verified driver reviews for charging locations to deliver the highest quality and most up-to-date information possible when deciding where to charge.”
