Xatori Introduces GreenCharge App for Electric Vehicle Enthusiasts

February 01, 2012 by Jeff Shepard

Xatori Inc., creators of PlugShare, described as the nation’s largest electric vehicle charging network, introduced its second product, GreenCharge. The iOS application allows users to view real time battery data and to share the environmental and monetary benefits of owning an electric vehicle. GreenCharge is available for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch devices for $9.99 - the average cost of charging an electric car for a week.

GreenCharge is a must-have utility for electric vehicle owners and those considering one. The app provides real time charging information by syncing directly with a compatible electric vehicle such as a Nissan LEAF or Chevy Volt. In addition, GreenCharge is the first and only app to connect driving data with local energy pricing to give personalized data about the cost of operating an electric car. EV owners can also see the environmental impact of driving in terms of carbon offset. By providing this information, GreenCharge empowers EV owners and enthusiasts alike to better understand and communicate the advantages of electric vehicles.

With the GreenCharge app, users can:

– seamlessly sync data from their Nissan LEAF or Chevrolet Volt

– test out a demonstration vehicle to simulate driving and cost information if considering purchasing an EV

– get real time charging, battery, and range information for their electric vehicles

– see their daily, weekly, and monthly driving broken down by mileage and price

"I’ve talked to too many people who have been confused about the benefits and operating costs of an electric vehicle," said Forrest North, CEO of Xatori Inc. "We built GreenCharge to let EV owners understand their cars and educate others on the true environmental and monetary benefits of driving an electric vehicle."
