About Us

Zap-Map makes electric vehicle (EV) charging simple.

We are the UK’s leading app and digital platform for EV drivers to search for charge points, plan longer journeys, pay on participating networks and share updates with other EV drivers.

With 95%+ of public charge points mapped and around 70% of charge points showing live availability status, Zap-Map provides EV drivers with peace of mind and the confidence to drive any length of journey in their EV.

With the backing of Good Energy, the leading renewable energy company, Zap-Map’s mission is to accelerate the shift to electric vehicles and help the drive towards zero carbon mobility.

Zap-Map attracts more than 200,000 UK users per month from a rapidly growing fleet of over 480,000 pure-EVs (Zap-Map’s core user group) and 390,000 plug-in hybrids (SMMT: May 2022). As the go-to data source for the industry, check Zap-Map for the latest statistics, as well as news, info and tools for current and prospective EV drivers.

The engaged Zap-Map community add daily status and info updates to charging points, and can make their home and work charge points available to other EV drivers as part of the peer-to-peer Zap-Home and Zap-Work network.
