Abstract:This study researched which requirements non-early adopters have for a dashboard in an electronic vehicle to ease and/or preclude range anxiety. For this a qualitative user requirement analysis was performed consisting of eight semi-structured interviews with non-early adopters about their needs to ease and/or preclude range anxiety. These interviews yielded nine topics non-early adopters want. Whilst early and non-early adopters have clear similarities on requirements, it did become clear that non-early adopters do have extra needs, mostly with regard to the possibilities of charging an electronic vehicle. Furthermore, this study found clear design implications based on the user requirements within these topics. Thereby giving insight in design possibilities for a dashboard of an electronic vehicle. However, these design implications also shed light on the fact that not all early-adopters are alike and do not have the same requirements. From all the requirements mentioned a first set-up for a dashboard in an electronic vehicle is proposed. Since this study was in an interview setting, requirements in a driving setting could differ. It is advised that the proposed dashboard is used for further research and testing to create a dashboard that eases and/or precludes range anxiety for the majority of the population.
