The new partnership is designed to provide EV drivers with photos and ratings for charging locations, alongside Parkopedia-provided essential information such as the precise location of the charger, the charging speed, connector type and dynamic data including charging availability and whether units are operational or out-of-order.

Parkopedia’s network now covers Spain, Italy, Belgium and Luxembourg, adding to the previous coverage in Germany, France, Netherlands, Austria and Switzerland. The company stated that its service will be expanded to new markets soon.

“We recognise the charging anxiety facing EV drivers today when searching for suitable charging locations and we are pleased to offer new functionality to simplify the charging process. Today, more than 90% of EV drivers feel anxious about charging, with 44% having run out of charge,” said Hans Puvogel, Parkopedia COO, adding: “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.”
