Those who utilize the Fastned electric vehicle fast-charging network in the Netherlands will now have access to a trip planner being released by the company, which should make long-distance travel that utilizes the Fastned charging network an even simpler affair.

In an email sent to CleanTechnica and EV Obsession, Fastned noted that the trip planner provides users with the exacts of when and where to stop for charging while on the way to their destination. The service (Routeplanner) is available through a web browser (, smartphone/tablet app (iOS and Android), or a desktop. The service is in Beta, it should be noted.

The email provides more: “The algorithm of the navigation tool is developed specifically for Fastned fast-charging stations. The optimal route is calculated based on the range and efficiency of the car, traffic, the location of all Fastned stations and the charging curve of the Fastned fast chargers. In addition, the navigation tool is automatically updated when new Fastned stations are added to the network. The navigation tool is currently in beta phase. Fastned will continue to optimize the functionality of the planner.”

The CEO of Fastned, Michiel Langezaal, commented: “Fastned is continuously improving the experience of electric driving and charging. In recent years we have worked hard to expand the number of fast-charging stations and ensure that chargers will always work. The Fastned trip planner will make electric driving and fast-charging at Fastned even easier. And the more you use Fastned, the cheaper it gets. With the Fastned Power price plan you can fast charge throughout the Netherlands for just 19 cent per kWh (kilowatt-hour).”

This represents another move by the Dutch company that suggests it is doing what it needs to do to become the top electric vehicle (EV) fast-charging network in the region — which may well eventually cover much of the western part of Europe, if things go well.

I don't like paywalls. You don't like paywalls. Who likes paywalls? Here at CleanTechnica, we implemented a limited paywall for a while, but it always felt wrong — and it was always tough to decide what we should put behind there. In theory, your most exclusive and best content goes behind a paywall. But then fewer people read it! We just don't like paywalls, and so we've decided to ditch ours. Unfortunately, the media business is still a tough, cut-throat business with tiny margins. It's a never-ending Olympic challenge to stay above water or even perhaps — gasp — grow. So ...
