New York, NY, Aug. 24, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Zion Market Research has published a new report titled “Small Electric Vehicle Market by Vehicle Type (2 or 3 Wheeler, Passenger Cars, and Light Commercial Vehicle), by Technology (Hybrid Electric Vehicle, Plug-In Hybrid Electric Vehicle, and Battery Electric Vehicle), Global Industry Perspective, Comprehensive Analysis, and Forecast, 2017 – 2024”. According to the report, global small electric vehicle market was valued at USD 7.10 billion in 2017 and is expected to reach around USD 28.60 billion by 2024, growing at a CAGR of approximately 22.02% for the forecast period from 2018 to 2024.

Electric vehicles are different from fossil fuel-powered vehicles. An electric vehicle is a substitute for conventional internal combustion engines. They use electric motors and controllers for driving. The required electricity is stored onboard by the vehicle using a battery, or a fuel cell. Vehicles making use of engines working on the principle of combustion usually derive their energy from non-renewable fossil fuels. The main advantage of electric vehicles is that they have a regenerative braking feature which is used to convert kinetic energy produced by the vehicle to store it in the battery of the vehicle. However, due to the use of heavy batteries in these vehicles, the weight of electric vehicles increases. Thus, lightweight electric vehicles were introduced in the market. These light electric vehicles (LEVs) weigh less than 100kg and is one of the largest and fastest growing electric vehicle markets. E-bikes are the dominating type segment in this market which is further anticipated to retain its dominance throughout the forecast period.

Environmental pollution control has become a major concern in today’s world as rising pollution due to vehicular emissions is forcing the governments to introduce new rules and regulations for automobile manufacturers and emissions control. This is one of the major factors increasing the adoption of small electric vehicles. Increase in the prices of fuel due to rise in the prices of crude oil and increasing demand for more fuel efficient, high performance, and fewer emission vehicles are the key drivers for the growth of the small electric vehicle market. However, the cost of production is high and service availability is less for electric vehicles when compared to gasoline engine cars. These limitations are presently restraining the growth of the small electric vehicle market. Further, the involvement of governments in raising the awareness against pollutions and various marketing and selling activities of the small electric vehicles are some of the factors boosting the growth of this market. Along with this, the continuous improvement in technology will help the electric vehicle manufacturers to produce more reliable and more fuel-efficient vehicles.

2 or 3 wheelers, passenger vehicles, and light commercial vehicles are the vehicle type segments of the small electric vehicle market. 2 or 3 wheeler vehicle type segment is expected to observe remarkable growth in the coming years. Further, on the basis of technology, the small electric vehicle market is segmented into the plug-in hybrid electric vehicle, battery electric vehicle, and hybrid electric vehicle. The market is analyzed in five regions namely Asia Pacific, North America, Latin America, Europe, and the Middle East and Africa.
