TOKYO, May 17, 2017 - (JCN Newswire) - Mitsubishi Motors Corporation (MMC) announced that it has begun offering its charging spot search smartphone app "EV Support" for Mitsubishi Motors EV Support(1) members in Japan, with expanded features and support for Android Auto(2), via Google Play(2). MMC is the first automaker to distribute a genuine Android Auto compatible app(3).

Users can also share a charging spot on Google Maps(2) and set it as the route destination.

(1) Support program packaging various services including charging service for owners of the MiEV series and Outlander PHEV.
(2) Android, Android Auto, Google Play, and Google Maps are trademarks of registered trademarks of Google Inc.
(3) In-house research as of May 16, 2017.
