Use case

Public charging & route planning

Public charging & route planning reduces range anxiety by automatically accessing users’ EV battery State of Charge (SoC) and capacity in real time. This information can be used to calculate and display nearby chargepoints, as well as estimating charging times so users can effectively plan their route.

  • Maximize your network capacity

    Reward customers for charging with your network, and incentivize them to charge at times when demand is low.

  • Build an EV superapp

    Engage existing users and attract new ones by surfacing all their EV data in your app.

How it works

Enable public charging and route planning in your app

Users connect EV

Users sign into their OEM account using Enode’s link UI, and easily connect their EV to your app.

Users access EV data

Users instantly see EV data including State of Charge (SoC), vehicle location, range and more. This information is updated in real-time, rather than requiring users to manually input it.

Users plan their route within your app

Users can see compatible chargepoints, availability, time and cost to charge, and plan their route accordingly.

Customer story

Elton uses Enode to simplify route planning and become an EV superapp

“Enabling the transaction is only one part of what drivers need. For the best experience on the road, they also need to understand where chargers are, which are compatible with their EV, what the optimal route between them is and how much they should charge at each point.”
Karsten Gutterød Hauklien
