If you drive an electric car, you know that it's not enough to find a charging station on the map -- you need to know that there's an available plug. Here and Hubject think they can help. They've forged a partnership that will see Here's maps (both in apps and in the car) get real-time info for EV charging stations using Hubject's platform in Europe. You'll know whether or not there's a space free, what connectors are available and other details that can mean the difference between powering up and driving by. The integration won't be finished until the summer, but it'll make those cross-continent trips less nerve-wracking when it's ready.
