PlugShare claims to be the world’s largest electric vehicle (EV) charging network, with over 2,500 charging locations. And it’s free.
Designed by Xatori, a Palo Alto software company, PlugShare is acommunity-powered EV network that provides up-to-date listing of allpublic charging stations compatible with the newest generation ofelectric vehicles like the Nissan LEAF and Chevy Volt.
