How we developed the design guidance
How did we develop this design guidance?
Everything in this design guidance has been directly influenced by what disabled drivers and passengers, and those close to them have told us first-hand.
We are grateful for the feedback from over 200 Motability Scheme customers who shared their views with us throughout the work.
This design guidance was developed by Designability in partnership with Motability Foundation (opens in a new window).
It’s really important to be involved in this process as a disabled person, because we are getting our views heard
Our development process
Here we describe the design process that led to this guidance.
1. Research – Finding out about EV charging
Our researchers were new to this sector, so our design team learned all about EV charging.
5. Build – Creating prototypes
We finalised the designs based on the feedback, then created physical models (prototypes) to help us describe the design concepts. Explore our charging unit prototypes here.
