Electric Car Distances on Google Maps
Jurassic Test is a Google Maps application that allows you to test whether different makes of electric car are able to complete a planned journey without having to recharge the battery.
To use the app you can choose from a large number of electric car models. You can choose a make of car to test by selecting the 'add a vehicle' button at the top right of the application. When you have selected your car(s) you just need to enter a start and end point for your journey on the Google Map (you can just click on the map twice to set two locations).
After you select the 'update' button beneath the map the battery icon next to the car(s) you have selected will estimate how much battery power would be used on your chosen journey.
