Google expands Maps eco-friendly routes to nearly 40 European countries

Google last year launched Maps for Android and iOS, showing the greenest routes. It has been on the market for nearly 18 months in the US and Canada, while Germany joined the party in August.

Now the mode is expanding to “almost 40” European countries including France, Ireland, Poland, Spain and the UK, but Google doesn’t provide the full region list.

Eco-routing mode provides the most efficient route, even if it means more time to get there. It will take into account hills, traffic, toll booths and other stops and provide stops with more constant speeds and calculate fuel savings.

Google Maps also allows you to choose the type of car you drive – whether it’s petrol, diesel, hybrid or electric. Also, if you’re a fan of the latter, you can always visit and bookmark our new project ArenaEV.com, where we talk about all things electric vehicles.

The system has been constructed based on feedback from the EEA (European Environment Agency), combined with Google’s own machine learning models, which are the most popular engines in a given region. This means that some fossil-fuel vehicles may be diverted through highways, while electric vehicles may receive advice on even surface streets for better energy recovery.

The feature will be rolled out in time for this winter’s energy crisis in Europe when it comes. Many countries on the Old World expect heating to become more expensive, meaning any savings and cost-cutting measures, like this one for Google Maps, are very welcome.
