I am driving an electric vehicle and have a few ideas:
1. route for least hills
2. fleet learn from other EVs to improve range
3. Tesla already uses Google Maps -- integrate with their EV (API?) to get range and utilization (efficiency) data to improve commutes and feedback on battery state
4. Allow users to manually set up their EV in the app and prompt for "did you get a full charge overnight" or "please update actual battery % or rated range estimate, currently 288 miles, actual?"
5. Learn "destination charging" and "destination parking" for manual EV setup behavior (e.g. amount of charging overnight, where and when to charge ... "hey, you're going to xyz shop, there's a chargepoint free for one hour of parking three flat blocks' walk from your destination ... do you want to route to that EV charging/parking location?"
Thank you for your suggestion! Adding EV charging stations to the map is under consideration.

I agree to all of the above wholeheartedly....also the 'fuel' setting needs to include electricity
