Hybrid Electric Vehicle Technology Fundamentals

The hybrid electric vehicle global market size was valued at USD 56.52 billion in 2021 and is projected to hit around USD 310.94 billion by 2030, growing at a CAGR of 20.86% every year.

The execution of extreme contamination and eco-friendliness norms, as well as government motivators to empower the buy and utilization of half and half vehicles, are a portion of the essential drivers driving the market's development. As open attention to discharges has developed, administrative associations have executed more severe emanation guidelines.

Rise of alternative powertrains (APVs)

The striking jump in the sales of BEVs appears as a testament to Europe's commitment to electrification, as all-electric vehicle sales increased by 53 in Europe, reaching a total unit of 224,147 cars. Romania witnessed an impressive 409% increase in BEV sales, while Spain followed with 110%. France and Germany also kept up the positive trend by 42.9% and 29.5%. On the other hand, Italy appeared as the only country where BEV sales dropped by 15%.

PHEVs also stayed strong, increasing the overall market share despite a 5.4% shrink in sales across Europe, accounting for 199,107 unit sales. France and Germany lost interest in PHEVs, sales declining 13% and 6.3%, respectively. In contrast, Spain and Italy favoured this segment, with 46.9% and 19% increase in sales, respectively.

Market share of HEVs increased 5.4% from January to March, totaling 563,035 cars, only witnessing a 6.4% fall in Italy while rising in other major European markets.

The decline of natural gas vehicles (NGVs) continued, with a remarkable 54% fall (only 6,291 units sold), while LPG-fuelled cars made a 49% jump, most significantly in Germany with 287.9%.

Fossil fuel continues to drop sharply

The downward shift of petrol and diesel cars continued in Europe, diesel facing a sharp decline of 33.5% in sales (378,011 units) and losing 5.5% market share. All four major European markets scored a fall in diesel between 20.4% and 44%.

Petroleum passenger car sales reached 808,045 units in Q1 2022, losing its market share of 41% to 36.7%.
