May not be fastest route available

Google Maps has announced a new feature on its app, which shows drivers the least carbon-intensive route to travel, to get to their destination.

The route provided may not always be the fastest, but will have the least stop-start traffic.

The route will also have the least inclines and the smoothest drive.

The function will be available in Europe from January.

Google estimates it will reduce carbon emissions by 1 million tons per year.
