SCOPE OF REPORT
After decades of expensive development and false starts, the world is finally ready for electric vehicles. As defined by this report, the term “electric vehicles” includes commercial approaches such as pure battery-powered vehicles, plug-in hybrids, hybrid internal combustion/battery, range extending, and fuel cell vehicles, as well as vehicles powered by developmental power sources such as supercapacitors and flywheel-powered. In addition to cars and trucks, this report considers motorcycles, scooters, buses, neighborhood electric vehicles, military vehicles and locomotives.
This report details the actuals for 2009 and 2013, and compound annual growth rate (CAGR) projections for 2014 through 2019 for the North American, European, Far Eastern and Rest-of-World markets. Power source sales and values are provided under consensus, optimistic and pessimistic scenarios. A patent analysis and discussion for power sources and vehicle components describes where research is performed and emphasizes intellectual property issues.
As defined by BCC Research for this report, electric vehicles and fuel cell vehicles include the following:
- Hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs).
- Plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs).
