Segment Overview 


The hybrid vehicle market outlook predicts a good growth period for the market by the end of the forecast year in 2028. To diversify the operations, the hybrid vehicles market is segmented based on the following: 


Propulsion type 


The propulsion type comes inclusive of the NGV, HEV, as well as, PHEV. the plug-in hybrids are gaining a lot of momentum. Apart from the generators, the mechanism for engines is helping to generate power that helps in charging the battery of these vehicles. The battery charging can be done by plugging it into an external source as well. These vehicles make use of a battery source that can be charged with the help of an engine generator mechanism only. Natural gas vehicles make use of CNG for providing power to the engines further helping in driving the generators. This helps in driving the electric motor which initiates the working of the hybrid vehicle. The old battery is scrapped and replaced with the availability of a new unit.  


Type of components 


The hybrid vehicles market make use of transmissions and batteries, along with the electric motor for convenient functioning. 



  • Hybridization degree 


The hybridization is full, micro, as well as mild-hybrid degrees.
