Dr Ben Lane

Director, Next Green Car and Zap Map

Ben’s co-founded company Zap Map is seen as the authority on the publiccharging infrastructure, giving accurate data on charge locations. In 2019, Zap Map introduced voice command on GoogleAssistant, and in 2020 wants to go further by integrating with open in-car dash systems Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. These features follow the success of Zap Map’s route planner which helps EV drivers plan longer journeys and Zap-Home, a network of private charging locations owned by households and businesses who have chosen to share electricity with other Zap-Map registered drivers.
