Recent Developments

  • The global automotive low emission vehicle market players are having a firm understanding of the fact that the current batteries in use for hybrid vehicles are unable to meet the criteria but the lithium-ion battery is being considered as an excellent option. This is a futuristic approach that has a high energy density. The mass production of FHEV cars is including nickel-metal-hydride (NiMH) batteries. However, the technological shift in battery employment is expected to provide the market with technological benefits.

  • The safety-related mandates that have been initiated by the global governments like CAFE belonging to the US, and EURO standards of Europe, are rolling various kinds of environmental and safety regulations. These regulations tend to control the concentration of emissions and further, save the fuel economy. The main objective behind these regulations is to optimize the engine‚Äôs performance along with powertrains that will help in bringing down the fuel costs and emissions.

  • China, as a part of the APAC region, is imposing a quota on the manufacturing of vehicles that are 100% electric or hybrid. Beijing, China issues only 10,000 permits for registration of vehicles with a combustion engine on monthly basis. The main aim behind this is to encourage the inhabitants to make a move and switch to make efficient use of owing and using electronic vehicles.

Market Dynamics


The sales quantum of electric vehicles is one of the major components of environmental goals and policies. There are 10 leading countries namely China, the UK, Canada, the Netherlands, the US, Japan, Norway, Germany, Sweden, and France that are adapting to the use of electric vehicles and have a high range of policies employed that will help in a wide promotion of the sales of these vehicles in the global automotive low emission vehicle market. There are a variety of regulatory policies that are functional at different administrative levels like the fuel-economy standards and restrictions on vehicle circulation on emissions performance amongst others are the key factors that will drive the market towards growth by the end of the forecast period in 2030.


One of the biggest challenges that hybrid electric vehicle manufacturers are facing is the inability to find suitable storage options and solutions for the produced and manufactured vehicles. The batteries that are a part of these vehicles need to be affordable, emit a small light, and be safe to use. They are expected to have high power and higher energy density. Also, they should be able to last for a good number of years without degrading in use or performance. Hence, the market needs excellent employment of technology to overcome the storage and employment challenges and help the market dwell in the forecast period.
