Dear Fit EV drivers,

I am a graduate student at UC Davis' Plug-in Hybrid and Electric Vehicle Research Center (http://phev.ucdavis.edu) .

In our research at the PH&EV center, we are currently studying the impact of „Connected Cars“ on the attractiveness of plug-in electric vehicle driving. The term „Connected Car“ refers to vehicles equipped with an Internet connection and mobile apps from the smartphone world to interact with their environment.

At the moment, we are investigating how these mobile apps and innovative connectivity concepts could improve consumer acceptance for plug-in electric vehicles in the future. To this aim, we are conducting a short online survey (approx. 10 minutes). It is open to everybody who is interested; however, we are particularly looking for EV drivers to answer our questions. In the survey, we will introduce you to four different connectivity concepts and apps and ask you a couple of questions about your respective opinion.

You could do our center a huge favor by participating in the survey via the following link:

(In case you are wondering about the ".de" URL: Our study is a joint effort between UC Davis’ Plug-In Hybrid & Electric Vehicle Research Center and RWTH Aachen University in Germany, and we are using a German online survey tool)

Furthermore, I would like to use the opportunity to ask you about your expectations towards mobile apps for EVs and encourage a discussion in this forum:

    Which type of apps would you like to be able to use for your electric vehicle?
    Which functionalities could improve consumer acceptance for EVs?

Best,
Jens :)

I did the survey- it takes a few minutes but they have some interesting ideas for making the plug-ins more useful

Hey folks,

Thanks to everybody who has already taken our survey!

Just a quick reminder:

Our survey is running for another 24 hours. We've had over 250 participants so far and are quite content with the feedback. Whoever has 10 free minutes, you can still support us and take part till tomorrow, 6 pm EST. We are also looking for survey takers who are interested in purchasing an electric vehicle, but do not drive one yet.

Thanks,
Jens
