For EV Owners
Provides an experience to help them reduce costs of ownership by presenting information about Level 2 home chargers, along with charger rebate links to purchasing and other utility rate and demand response programs.
For EV Shoppers
Created an online experience for the user to easily navigate to see EV Benefits, Facts, Vehicle Comparison/Cost Calculator, and Find A Dealer, Find A Charging Station. Biggest benefit is to get them interested in EV and to then help them quickly choose an EV.

Idea and exploration
Set up the foundation
Using responsive layout grid to adapt to screen size to ensure consistency across layouts.
The calculator is the key part of the whole project, we have worked with UserZoom to pinpoint what users like.
Target: EV calculation concept
Gender: 3 males, 2 females / A mix of EV owners and shoppers.
Method: Online user testing via UserZoom
Task: Compare value and usage
Identify actions you could take to change the ownership cost of a given electric vehicle. What factors would make ownership more expensive? Which will make it cheaper?
Where would you most likely click next after having finished comparing your selected vehicles? Please start the task and then click once on your preferred “next step.”
“What was missing from the summary page was the math. Show me for different numbers of years of ownership what the total net cost would be!” – an EV Owner
“I felt like there needed to be a clear separation between the two vehicles to show the differences between each from a specs standpoint such as miles per gallon and other specifications of each car. I felt organization of the page was missing” – an EV Shopper
“The cost of the vehicle was the most important factor” – an EV Shopper
The home page would be divided into two different categories for two different groups.
EV owner page
- Introducing to incentives and programs
- Promotional space for buying a home charger
EV shopper page
- EV Benefits & EV facts
- Compare vehicles – the cost of owning an EV
