HTML clipboard included a new report on “Global market review of hybrids and electric drive vehicles forecasts” provides hybrid and plug-in technologies across three scenarios: “battery skeptical”; “moderate”; and “uber-green”.

Global market review of hybrids and electric-drive vehicles – forecasts to 2015 report ( ) This is first global market review of hybrids and electric drive technology. With these sectors set to dominate alternative propulsion and the drive for better fuel efficiency over the short-term future, this report provides a timely review of the latest technologies from the main players, our analysis of market take-up and a review of the different technologies and where they are heading. Most industry analysts expect plug-in hybrids and battery-electric vehicles to follow a roughly similar growth curve, though aggressive government policies to subsidise plug-ins may increase consumer take-up by compensating for the high cost of the battery packs over the first few years.

Idle-stop, or micro-hybrid systems seem likely to penetrate certain regions – especially Europe – quite rapidly over the next five years.

So how fast will hybrids, plug-ins and electric vehicles increase their total share over the next few years? For example, we believes through its three forecast scenarios, that conventional (‘full’ or power-split) hybrids such as the archtetypal Toyota Prius will represent anything between 3% and 8% of global light vehicle production by 2015. Plug-in vehicles will take a much lower share, split among: pure battery-electrics (with ranges of up to 200 miles); plug-in hybrids (PHEVs); and extended-range EVs (‘series’ hybrids). This report provides production volume estimates and percentage market shares from 2008 to 2015 for hybrid and plug-in technologies across three scenarios: “battery skeptical”; “moderate”; and “uber-green”.
