Reliable feedback about the range and charging status helped drivers to adapt their behaviour and use their vehicles effectively Keywords: HMI, low carbon vehicles, early adopters, sustainability 1 INTRODUCTION It is widely accepted that the continued use of fossil fuels is unsustainable due to the environmental impact of C02 emissions on global warming. In 2007, the International Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) reported that an 80% cut in greenhouse gases was needed from developed countries to limit the future damage.

G. g. head-on collision) are coded in the accident database (as is done for example in police reported accidents in UK, DfT, 2004) while in other databases only the latter is presented. A lane departure resulting in a head-on collision could be coded as a lane departure accident or a head-on accident or in some instances be coded as both. Thus, the effectiveness estimation of a system very much depends on the classification made in the accident database used. A lane departure situation resulting in a head-on collision could perhaps be avoided with a Lane Departure Warning system (LDW) or a Lane Keeping Assist system (LKA), perhaps also mitigated with an emergency braking system.

Similar trends emerged from each data source; therefore the results have been presented in terms of these themes. 1 Range Anxiety Range anxiety is the term used to describe drivers` anxiety about their car`s ability to cover the distance required before it needs to be recharged. It occurs almost exclusively in drivers of fully electric vehicles because the limited charging infrastructure means they cannot easily ‘refill’. It is also more prevalent amongst those who are less experienced in driving LCVs.
