The electric vehicle landscape is rapidly changing as both technology and interest evolve, and the coming years will see many more EVs take to the roads. In the US, electric vehicles sales have climbed by more than 40 percent a year since 2016.
By 2035, the largest automotive markets will be fully electric—providing both a glimpse of a green future and significant economic opportunity. Electric vehicles will shape the future.
Electric vehicles (EVs) are becoming an increasingly popular alternative to traditional gasoline-powered vehicles. The dashboard in an EV plays a crucial role in providing drivers with important information about their vehicle and its performance, such as the battery level, range, charging status, energy consumption, and navigation.
The goal of an EV dashboard is to provide drivers with a clear and intuitive display of information to help them make informed decisions about their vehicle and its performance. By prioritizing the most important information and designing a user-friendly interface, the EV dashboard can help to improve the driving experience and promote the adoption of electric vehicles.
1. Complex data visualization:
One common problem with EV dashboard design is presenting complex data in a way that is easy to understand. This can often result in cluttered or confusing displays that make it difficult to quickly interpret the information.
2. Lack of personalization:
Another issue with EV dashboard design is a lack of personalization, meaning that users may not be able to see the information that is most relevant to them.
1. To overcome this challenge, I will prioritize simplicity and clarity in their visualizations. Utilizing simple graphs, charts, and diagrams can help to effectively communicate data without overwhelming users.
2. A solution to this problem is to allow users to customize their dashboard view to display only the data that is important to them. This can be achieved by including a set of customizable widgets or options that allow users to choose which data is displayed.
"Background, Qualitative Questions,
Qualitative Research, Key Findings"
I conducted user interviews and surveys to gain insight into the needs and behavior of EV UI/UX potential users. In total, 10 potential EV owners were interviewed, ranging in age from 25 to 65 with varying driving experience, and 30 EV owners across the United States were surveyed.
1. Users may want a simple and intuitive interface that is easy to learn and use, regardless of their experience with EVs or technology.
2. Users may appreciate features that provide helpful guidance and support, such as route planning and finding nearby charging stations.
3.Users may value the ability to customize settings and preferences, such as audio and climate controls, to their liking.
4. Users may prefer a clean and uncluttered design that reduces distractions while driving.
5.Users may prioritize features that improve safety, such as voice control, large buttons and icons, and clear visual cues.
