Google Maps will expand its eco-friendly navigation feature to Europe

8 September 2022


Google announced it is expanding its options for eco-friendly routing on Google Maps to 40 more countries across Europe.

Eco-friendly routes, first introduced to U.S-based users last year, offer to show more fuel-efficient routes instead of the fastest ones.

Users can see the eco-friendly route marked with a leaf label and choose fuel-efficient routing among the new options.

The company is also launching a new feature for car owners to choose their vehicle’s engine type to get personalized suggestions for fuel-efficient routes best suited for the engine.

In the coming weeks, users will be able to head to the settings mentioned above, and select the engine type — petrol or gas, diesel, hybrid or electric vehicle (EV) — for navigation.

This technology is made possible thanks to insights from the U.S. Department of Energy’s National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) and data from the European Environment Agency", the company said in a blog post.

Google claimed that after introducing eco-friendly routes in the U.S and Canada it has been able to save carbon emissions equivalent to 100,000 cars.
