Global Electric Low Speed Vehicle Market Insights

Global Electric Low-Speed Vehicle Market valued at USD 39.7 billion in 2017, which expected to reach USD 83.37 billion by 2027, growing at a CAGR of 7.12 % during 2020–2027. it is primarily attributed to factors such as increasing air pollution and rising oil prices, which are uplifting the trend for low-speed electric vehicles and further catalyze the Electric Low-Speed Vehicle market growth. To save and cut costs, major population inclination towards economic vehicles is giving market growth a huge upward push. Additionally, shifting trends followed by various end-use industries such as airports, golf courses, and hotels towards low running cost vehicles for commuting purposes is also facilitating the demand rise for the low-speed electric vehicle.

Furthermore, the growth of the market includes a reduction in greenhouse gas emissions since electric vehicles emit almost half the CO2 emissions, are a cost-effective mode of transportation, and highly efficient. The government initiatives to support electric vehicles are promoting the growth of the market. Additionally, rising preference toward electric vehicles will end in the higher deployment of different products, thus, creating revenue-generating opportunities for key stakeholders in the Electric Low-Speed Vehicle market across the globe. Also, the EV battery is one of the prime factors which determines the adoption of the low-speed electric vehicle. With battery prices on a decline, the use of electric vehicles for commercial applications projected to economically viable in the next five years, which will promulgate the demand for electric low-speed vehicle globally.

Growth Driver

Favorable Government Policies for Electric Vehicles

The rising threat of global warming and increasing pollution has accentuated the need to replace vehicles, which are petroleum fuelled and polluting the environment. Thus, the demand for electric vehicles is emerging across the globe. The efforts are rising with continuous support from many automotive OEMs, governments, and other private agencies that are promoting the sales of zero-emission vehicles but also taking steps towards charging infrastructure, favorable regulatory framework, and financial support.

The U.S. federal government has proposed a tax credit for plug-in electric vehicles (PEVs) purchased after December 31, 2009. The tax credit ranges from USD 2,500 to USD 7,500 for each vehicle based on its battery capacity and gross vehicle weight. Similarly, China has been adopting more aggressive actions to encourage EV purchases in the country. EVs were exempted from purchase taxes from 2014 to 2017, and the government has renewed the exemption through 2020.

Growing concern toward environmental pollution

The electric vehicle is cleaner than internal combustion engine cars over their lifetime; for example, the electric car produces half of the greenhouse gas emissions on an average passenger car. Furthermore, an electric car using average electricity is almost 30% cleaner over its life cycle in the market. The Plug-in hybrid vehicles have lifecycle emissions similar to battery electric vehicles coupled with the increasing adoption of Electric Low-Speed vehicles in the manufacturing Industry.

Rising fuel cost urging the need for electric vehicles

Gas prices will likely rise in the long-term. A rising world population, especially in developing countries, will push up demand for cars and thus of gas. Electricity prices, although subject to different market factors, may also increase. Since the price of fuel is a key advantage of electric vehicles, the comfortable prices of electric vehicles would overcome the demand for fuel and oil-based cars, buses, and utility vehicles.

Vehicle Type Segmental Analysis

Based on vehicle type, the global electric low-speed vehicle market classified into Two-Wheeler Vehicle (EV Scooter, EV Motorcycles, EV Bikes), Three-Wheeler Vehicle (E-Rickshaws), Four-Wheeler Vehicle (Utility Vehicle, Golf Cart, Electric Hotel Car, Low-Speed Heavy-Duty Vehicle, Electric Ambulance, and Others). The four-wheeler vehicle segment held maximum electric low-speed vehicle market share in 2019. It is attributable to the surge in oil prices and government policy for urging the use of electric vehicles will demand four-wheeler electric vehicles in the utility industry, golf courses, hotels & resorts and airports It includes utility vehicle, golf cart, electric hotel car, low-speed heavy-duty vehicle, electric ambulance, and others.

Two-Wheeler Vehicle will be the fastest-growing segment in the forecast period. It is owing to government incentive schemes, growing need to curb air pollution levels, and increasing affordability of electric two-wheelers being provided by leading automobile manufacturers.

Propulsion Type Segmental Analysis

Based on propulsion type, the global electric low-speed vehicle market segregated into Battery Electric Vehicle (BEV), Plug-In Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV), and Hybrid Electric Vehicle (HEV). The hybrid electric vehicle segment accounts for a higher revenue share in 2019 and projected to dominate the electric low-speed vehicle market by 2027. It is primarily attributed to the gasoline engines and electric motors. It provides many benefits such as improved fuel economy, increased power, or additional auxiliary power for electronic devices and power tools. It is majorly used in a three-wheeler and four-wheelers low-speed electric vehicle.

The plug-in hybrid electric vehicle will grow with a lucrative growth rate in the forecast period. It is due to the plug-in hybrid electric vehicle will hugely demand two-wheeler and three-wheeler low-speed electric vehicles.

Battery Type Segmental Analysis
