The new TomTom Routing and Range will be available in select electric models from TomTom customers later this year via an over-the-air-update and will be feature the introduction of the cloud-native TomTom Navigation for Automotive.

“If we want a future with cleaner air, we need to drive the electric vehicle revolution from the front,” said TomTom MD, Antoine Saucier.

“That means reducing the barriers to people choosing electric vehicles and having a 360° approach to EVs that differentiates us from the competition.”

TomTom’s EV range prediction factors in current and maximum battery level, driving speed, road type and gradient, as well as historic and real-time traffic data. The supplier maintains while many electric models’ range prediction fluctuates greatly, overestimating and then underestimating range by more than 30%, TomTom has demonstrated with a partner OEM, single-digit range accuracy for a 180km trip.

TomTom’s latest long-distance EV routing automatically provides drivers with optimised routes based on the range and recharging behaviour of the vehicle, the traffic situation on the road and real-time charging point information from TomTom’s charging point database.

Recharging typically doesn’t happen at the same speed, meaning multiple shorter stops might be faster.

TomTom Navigation for Automotive is a hybrid solution that offers deeper vehicle integration. For EVs, this solution brings the advantage of supporting functions such as battery pre-conditioning with information on upcoming charging.

This allows the vehicle to prepare its battery for optimal fast-charging performance, helping users spend less time waiting at a fast-charger, improving battery life and lowering total costs of ownership.

As with TomTom Navigation for Automotive, TomTom’s EV suite is available as APIs for companion app and webpage integration, enabling OEMs and e-mobility partners to build consistent, branded experiences.

Drivers can also find available EV charging points on the TomTom Go Navigation app, available for download via Google Play, App Store and Huawei AppGallery and on TomTom’s newest sat nav; the TomTom Go Discover.
