3. Proprietary apps
Many car manufacturers such as Volvo, Mercedes, and others offer apps tailored to their vehicles. They can be used to control a variety of vehicle functions. For example, the Volkswagen EV Check app can track driving behavior: distance travelled, battery and energy consumption, CO2 emissions, and total costs. Porsche has now also introduced the Porsche Charging Service, a standard system for finding and using charging stations throughout Europe, which is being expanded to include apps for various models. After all, the Taycan is now the first fully electric Porsche vehicle on the market.
