"MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. -- Charging up electric vehicles on the road is easier and more convenient now that Google has started adding charging station locations to the Google Maps platform.
In the United States, there are over 600 charging stations. To locate the ones near you or in a location you are heading for in your electric car, just search on Google Maps for 'ev charging station' plus the appropriate area, for example, 'ev charging station near Mountain View, CA.'
A list comes up in the viewing pane to the left of the map complete with the name of the charging station's location, the address and phone number, and sometimes even the brand of charging station at that location."
