Global Hybrid and Electric Commercial Vehicle Analysis

Publish Date : October, 2016

Global Hybrid and Electric Commercial Vehicle Analysis is exclusive in-depth analysis and forecast 2025. Alternative energy vehicle technology is quite well known in passenger car industry. But  truck and bus manufacturers started working on hybrid too and there are the first models in the market.

Hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs) decrease fuel consumption as well as emissions significantly compared to conventional and CNG vehicles used today. The benefits result mainly from recuperation, reducing losses during idling, operating point optimization and start-stop. With pure electric driving, which is possible with HEVs and battery electric vehicles, noise emissions can be reduced significantly.

Europe, Japan, and North America are the key markets for hybrid trucks. While East Asian manufacturers are more focused on light and medium duty hybrid trucks, European and North American producers strengthen their presence in the heavy duty segment.

Minimum payload reduction, reasonable costs and significant reductions in fuel consumption are the top requirements from a customer’s point of view. 

The big European and Japanese manufacturers are highly active in the field of hybridization. In the United States and China, the OEM are setting at the moment a new focus on gas fuelled trucks with CNG and LNG.  

Hybrid & Electric Bus market

Hybrid city buses are seen as mature technology, as they operate successfully all over the world. Fuel savings depend on the conditions (topography, start-stop cycle, heating in winter, cooling in summer etc.). Hybrid and electric buses are manufactured for the city use. All competitors claim fuel savings between 20 – 40% (depending on operating profile) through hybridization.

Due to falling battery prices, quiet and local emission-free operation electric buses are getting more attention. 

Induction, plug -in, charging from the top via pantograph and battery swap are possible charging solutions. 

Costs, capacity, and weight of batteries are the main challenges for electric buses. With mass production, batteries have big potential to become cheaper.

Leading e-mobility bus markets are China and North America. Europe hybrid bus market is behind  but growing. Emerging countries are also beginning to manufacture hybrid and electric buses (e.g. Brazil, India, and Russia).
