At the time of writing the UK had 700-750 charging points, with two third of these located in London (Vaughn, 2011). The research reported in this paper highlights the need to recognise these new areas associated with the driving task. 2Eco-driving Eco-driving is an adapted driving style which contributes to reduced fuel consumption and is not restricted to driving low carbon vehicles. ). Strategies include shifting to a higher gear as soon as possible, anticipating the road conditions, maintaining a steady speed in as high a gear as possible, driving slower than normal, switching off air conditioning, removing excess weight, switching off rather than idling the car, and keeping tyres at the optimum air pressure.

Bob Schumacher, General Director of Advanced Engineering & Business Development, Delphi Electronics & Safety, stated the need to engage practices in user experience design, active safety technologies, manage information flow from the infotainment to the user, and monitor the driver's attention while driving is their priority (Delphi 2011). The review of the experiences of early adopters of electric vehicles has shown that regardless of the model driven, there are a range of factors which need to be addressed to promote eco-driving, reduce anxiety and support the additional tasks that an alternatively fuelled vehicle creates.
