Key Findings

Global preferences are for long-range vehicles such as plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs) and extended-range electric vehicles (eREVs), mostly for their short charging time and long range.
Frost & Sullivan estimates approximately x electric vehicles (EVs) will be sold globally with North America accounting for x % of the market, followed by Europe and China with x % and x % respectively.
In 2015, battery electric vehicles (BEVs) will maintain the lead position and are likely to account for x % of the total EV sales, followed by x % for PHEVs. However, the share of PHEVs will increase over the next x – years.
Government bodies are expected to announce tax benefits and subsidies for consumers purchasing fuel cell vehicles (FCVs) considering significant funds have been allocated towards research and development (R&D) of fuel cells. Japan is likely to offer maximum incentives of up to x % of the vehicle cost, an attractive option.
All EV manufacturers are looking to capitalize on the available incentives and subsidies, mainly in China. Due to an annual decrease of x % incentive in China, original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) such as Tesla are looking at alternatives to qualify for incentives.
OEMs such as Honda, Hyundai, and Toyota are promoting FCVs as an alternative to EVs and are likely to launch FCVs in mid 2015 in Asia-Pacific (APAC), Europe, and North America.
