Full press release below:

Recargo, Inc. is working with Daimler to provide customized access to Recargo’s PlugShare charging network for the Mercedes-Benz B-Class Electric Drive. Daimler has incorporated PlugShare into the B-Class Electric Drive in-dash navigation system via e-Navigator App, making its comprehensive database and services an integral aspect of the Mercedes-Benz EV driving experience.

PlugShare is a free application for iOS, Android, and web that allows users to find charging stations and connect with other plug-in vehicle owners.

The collaboration with Daimler is a strategic move by PlugShare to support new programs and partners in the expanding EV market. The relationship furthers the demand for PlugShare’s in-depth, quality-controlled and expanding data and demonstrates how front-end customization of PlugShare can be incorporated into a variety of applications—including in-dash, smartphone, and online.

PlugShare is the largest and most comprehensive listing of public, paid and free charging stations with more than 120,000 active users sharing information in North America, and more than 100,000 worldwide station reviews, comments, and photos.

The Mercedes-Benz B-Class with PlugShare integration is now available in the United States in select markets.
