Mitsubishi Partners With CarStations For Electric Car Charging Station Data

  (November 29, 2011)

Catheys Valley, CA (PRWEB) November 29, 2011

CarStations, a crowd-sourced electric vehicle charging station locator application, has teamed with Mitsubishi Motors to provide an updated feed of charging station locations to their new mobile, Facebook and Website trip planning application.

Mitsubishi Motor's social media-friendly application is intended to show users the flexibility of the Mitsubishi is driving range by allowing them to see how many various stops can be made within the vehicles EPA-rated 62 mile range. The application will allow users to enter custom locations or choose from pre-populated local stops to map out their trip. Along this route you can also find charging station locations provided by CarStations.

Available free for both Apple and Android mobile operating systems, CarStations gives EV drivers an easy way to plan routes for an afternoon of suburban mall hopping or a month of regional road tripping.
CarStations currently lists over 1,800 electric car charging stations with more being added daily by both the company and its growing community of EV drivers. The app integrates Google Maps with GPS technology into a real-time tool that quickly finds nearby charging stations and filters for the right type at the push of a button. Its companion website gives drivers a robust desktop option for trip planning.

CarStations' crowd-sourcing feature gives EV drivers the power to add and update charging stations from their iPhone or Android. Users can also share helpful information with the CarStations community such as a charging station's exact location and the best nearby coffee shops for fellow drivers chill out while they charge up.

By tapping into the power of the crowd, CarStations users can provide real world information like parking costs, location status updates, favorite restaurants, pictures, detailed location information and more. Says CarStations CEO David Raboy, "With an electric car, filling up has completely changed. Electricity is everywhere and a charging station can be as simple as a plug on the wall. Only a crowd powered app like CarStations can help keep track of it all.
