Developer Toolkit for Electric Mobility
With more and more electric vehicles on the road, new challenges arise for drivers: How far can I go with one charge? How do I maximize my battery use? Where and when can I charge? With TomTom Maps APIs and SDKs, any developer can address these questions and help EV drivers forget about range anxiety. See what you can build!
Build an EV route planner that gives EV drivers all the information they need to travel any distance. Use the TomTom Routing API to accurately estimate how much energy is required for a trip using parameters specific to the vehicle. Add our exclusive eco-routing feature to calculate energy-efficient routes with accurate battery consumption calculations, even taking into account the route profile and expected traffic. For longer trips, use the TomTom Long Distance EV Routing API to show where and when to charge along the way.
Enable drivers to easily plan a route with optimized EV charging stops on the way. By defining the chargingMode, drivers can calculate the most optimal route based on the vehicle's specific charging behavior.
Drivers can calculate the most energy-efficient route based on accurate battery consumption calculations, and maximize how far a vehicle can go by setting the vehicleEngineType parameter to electric and routeType to eco.
Common routing parameters such as acceleration and uphill efficiency can be used to define an advanced electric consumption model. This is needed for precise EV routing and reachable range calculations.

Help EV drivers find compatible and available EV charging stations nearby or along their route using the TomTom Search API.
Help drivers find EV charging stations. By specifying a connectorSet, results can be restricted to only show EV charging stations that support the relevant connector type.
Show drivers relevant EV charging stations along the route.
Help drivers find EV charging stations around specific locations before a trip, or find the closest station at any time while driving.
Check the availability of EV charging stations. Results can be restricted to only show the EV charging stations that matter to the driver, based on availability, location and connector type.

Take range anxiety out of the EV driving experience. Use the TomTom Routing API to show EV drivers how far their vehicle can go with the current charge. Combine it with the TomTom Search API to show available EV charging stations within their reachable range.
Show EV drivers how far they can go. Use calculateReachableRange request to get a reachable range polygon based on the specific electric consumption model, terrain characteristics and traffic.
