This is a major improvement over the current Maps experience, which only provides basic information on charging stations, such as their location and hours of operation. The new features will make it much easier for electric car owners to plan their trips and find the best charging options along the way.

The upgrade is part of Google's broader effort to make its products more useful for electric car owners. In recent months, Google has added a number of new features to Maps and other products, such as support for EV charging stations in Google Assistant and the ability to search for EV charging stations in Google Search.
