      Perhaps you’ve already received this but had this survey from the RIDC. Figure you may be interested? Interesting to see that Motability are now doing research into the challenges that electric cars present to disabled people. Well better late than never I guess.


      Does the charging process prevent you from enjoying your electric car, or from buying one in the first place? Are accessible charging points hard to find?

      This is your chance to share your experience!

      The Motability Foundation wants to ensure that public charge points of zero-emission vehicles (EVs) are accessible and would like to understand if there have been improvements to the charging experience for disabled people since the PAS 1899 Standard was published in October 2022.

      Motability have asked the Research Institute for Disabled Consumers to research the experiences of disabled people with charging EVs.

      Please complete this survey if you drive, have driven or have been a passenger in an electriv vehicle. We would love to hear from you if you are considering buying an EV, if it was a more accessible experience, or if you are a pedestrian and have thoughts about electric vehicle charging.

        PAS 1899 sets out good practices for inclusive and accessible public charge points however, it is not legally enforceable as its not mandated in law unfortunately.
