USA: People Power: Crowdsourced EV Charging Info

The Mitsubishi i is set to hit the roads in the United States in January 2012, but Mitsubishi is already looking to the collective power of social media to make operating the electric vehicle (EV) as easy as possible. The Japanese automaker has partnered with CarStations to offer a new app for i drivers that will provide charging station information.

CarStations is a crowdsourced EV charging station locator application. Because data is continually updated by both users and CarStations, the app has the latest info on charging station availability and locations. The app gives drivers the power to add and update charging stations from their iPhone or Android. Users can also share helpful information with the CarStations community like parking costs, location status updates, favorite restaurants, pictures, detailed location information and more.
