The number of Electric Vehicles (EVs) on the road is increasing every year. There are an estimated 5.12 million EVs on the road today, and sales of EVs increased by 64% just from 2017 to 2018. Now that drivers are considering the switch to EVs, some common questions arise, and EV-aware apps are a big opportunity for developers, such as routing services optimized for EV drivers and the ability to provide up-to-date information about the location and availability of charging stations.
