Customer insights into charging technology and charging services

We regularly survey both the expectations and experiences of EV drivers at all touchpoints of the e-mobility customer journey. To this end, we have collected the most important questions from charging technology manufacturers, retailers and charging service providers.

Would you like us to inform you regularly about the most important results of our studies?

The right study for every topic

We regularly carry out extensive surveys of electric car drivers at various points of use along all touchpoints of the e-mobility customer journey. We therefore provide customer insights into charging technology and charging services.

eMobility Public Charging Study

What are the charging habits of e-car drivers on the road? What problems do they have when charging in public?

eMSP Loyalty Study

What are the market shares of eMobility service providers? Which ones are used most often? Why?

Smart Charging Acceptance Study

Under which conditions are e-car drivers willing to participate in Smart Charging?

eMobility Private Charging Study

What are the charging habits of e-car drivers at home? What problems do they have when charging at home?

Private Charging Infrastructure Retail Study

What experiences do interested parties have when looking for their private charging solution?

Public Charging Payment Study

Which payment methods do e-car drivers use at public charging points? How do they rate them?

Charging Persona Study

How do e-car drivers differ in terms of charging behaviour, housing situation, etc.?

Driving Current Persona Study

What are the relevant decision criteria of e-car drivers for the selection of the traction current supplier?

eMobility Marketing Study

What are the most important drivers and barriers for adopters to switch to eMobility?

Here you will find an overview with profiles of all studies.

UScale Study Dashboards

Our study reports show the key results in detail, usually on over 100 pages.

If you would like to gain even more insights from the results, you can perform any splits in the study dashboards and access the raw data set. You can also correlate all variables in the analysis section according to your own requirements and carry out statistical tests.

    The added value of our studies

    AGILE RESEARCH: Quick and efficient access to crucial insights

    Regular customer surveys are both time-consuming and expensive. We have therefore collected the most important questions from car manufacturers, energy suppliers, charging technology manufacturers and others and survey them regularly in the DACH market and other important markets. With our focus studies, we answer the majority of your questions off the cuff. If your questions go further, we answer them with the help of our panel of 10,000 EV drivers. We can also target people with specific charging behaviour and vehicle brands.

    CUSTOMER SEGMENTATION: Addressing the right target group with the right products

    As eMobility ramps up, new user groups are gradually entering the market. After the innovators and early adopters, the early majority group is now entering the market. Motivation, preferences and behaviour change with the customer segments over time. For this reason, USCALE studies visualise these changes and show trends for the coming years. In addition, we have already developed persona studies for important issues (EV adoption, charging behaviour and choice of car electricity provider).

    CUSTOMER JOURNEY: The new way to the suitable individual solution

    What information needs do buyers have in the purchase funnel? Do switchers look for an EV or a charging solution first? Do they buy from an electrician or a specialised provider?

    Industry boundaries are becoming blurred in the electromobility ecosystem. For example, many car manufacturers now sell electricity and photovoltaic systems. USCALE studies therefore show which user groups take which route to a suitable solution, what is important to them and how much trust they have in whom.

    CUSTOMER EXPERIENCE: Pain points and excitement factors

    What experiences do EV drivers have with their EV and with charging? Which aspects go well? Which are not? Nevertheless, a lot has to be reinvented in electromobility. This is why USCALE focus studies show where things are really stuck, which solutions are convincing and which product features still need to be improved.

    BENCHMARKING: The best manufacturers of charging technology and e-cars

    In a dynamic, fast-growing market, everyone benefits. That’s good, but it masks weaknesses in supply. As soon as supply catches up with demand, this will take its toll and lead to surprises for many manufacturers. For this reason, USCALE benchmark studies show which manufacturers are really convincing from the user’s point of view, which are falling behind the competition and why. You also get the market shares of the most important providers.

    PRODUCT-MARKET FIT: Implementing ideas that really become successful

    Developing innovations to market maturity is not only expensive but also the flop rate is high. To reduce the flop rate, we test your innovations and new products for product-market fit with the target group at an early stage. This gives you prioritised barriers in the targeted customer segments long before market launch and allows you to solve them during the development process. You also receive the most important drivers for various user segments for the campaign work of your marketing agencies.

    USCALE focus studies: User studies on electromobility

    Since 2018, USCALE has been systematically surveying EV drivers about their expectations and experiences at all touchpoints of the e-mobile customer journey. You can also find an overview of all USCALE focus studies HERE.

    We also show extracts from other studies in the LinkedIn articles by USCALE and Axel Sprenger, our company founder.
