A hybrid electric vehicle (HEV) is an automobile powered by a combination of an internal combustion engine (ICE) and an electric motor. It relies on energy stored in batteries for functioning and regenerative braking, which changes the kinetic energy produced into electric energy. It has less fuel consumption, carbon-based emissions, and maintenance costs than vehicles solely powered by an ICE. As a result, it is gaining immense traction as an environment-friendly alternative to conventional vehicles.

Market Dynamics

Driver: Increasing emission norms

Growing awareness of the emissions has led the regulatory bodies to implement stringent emission regulations. The rising stringency in emission norms for vehicles is forcing OEMs to manufacture hybrid and electric vehicles. Hybrid vehicles emit fewer greenhouse gases than gasoline and diesel vehicles.

The governments in the US and Europe are concentrating on lowering emission limits to decrease the greenhouse gas effect and are also focusing on improving the fuel economy of vehicles. For instance, the US Department of Transportation has set the Corporate Average Fuel Economy (CAFE) standards for vehicles.

Restraint: Rising demand for BEVs and FCEVs 

The increasing demand for Battery Electric Vehicles (BEVs) and Fuel Cell Electric Vehicles (FCEVs) will be one of the major challenges for the growth of hybrid vehicles. There are many models and types of BEVs such as hatchbacks, sedans, and SUVs in the passenger car segment. Automotive manufacturers such as BYD (China), Tesla (US), and Volkswagen (Germany) are focusing more on the development of BEVs.

The advantages of FCEVs is a high driving range, fast refueling, noiseless operation, and zero-emission of greenhouse gases and air pollutants. These benefits are positively impacting the demand for FCEVs. Moreover, governments are taking initiatives and promoting fuel cells for transportation, which can further boost the demand for fuel cells in the automotive and transportation sectors. For instance, the government of California launched the Clean Vehicle Rebate Project. The project includes rebate funding for low-income consumers and rebates for the purchase or lease of FCEVs.

Opportunity: Growth in developing markets

Hybrid vehicles offer immense opportunities for growth in the markets of developing countries because of initiatives and support from governments (e.g., incentives in sales and manufacturing, tax rebates, increased focus on deploying hybrid commercial vehicles). The Indian government is providing incentives of approximately USD 446 on the purchase of hybrid and electric vehicles in India. The Brazilian government is encouraging the purchase of hybrid vehicles such as plug-in hybrid, hybrid electric, and CNG hybrid by reducing the tax rate. The Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA), India, has awarded a contract to Tata Motors for supplying 25 Tata Starbus Diesel Series Hybrid Electric Buses.

Challenges: High vehicle cost

The challenge faced by the hybrid vehicle market is high cost. A hybrid vehicle such as a plug-in hybrid vehicle has the battery as its central component. The battery increases the cost of the vehicle, making it costlier than diesel- and gasoline-powered vehicles. The price difference is due to parts such as battery and regenerative brake price. However, there has been a significant decrease in the cost of batteries in the past few years. Also, battery manufacturers are taking initiatives and carrying out R&D operations to decrease the cost of batteries.
