Google Maps has received a new filter to classify the Electric Vehicles (EV) charging stations based on plug type.

There are different types of charging connectors used by several car manufacturers, for example, Nissan uses CHAdeMO, Tesla uses its instrumentation, and also the BMW and Volkswagen use CCS plug kind for charging their cars.

Since the emergence of the EV search facility over Google Maps, the users were missing out on the ability to filter results based on the connector type, GizmoChina reported on Sunday.
