Hybrids and electric vehicles (H & EVs) are one of the promising growth areas in the global automotive industry today. The emergence of the sector as potentially one of the most interesting areas of the automotive industry in the next 20 years has been accompanied by the entry of new participants, as well as new technologies. It is likely to be a significant factor in the long term growth and rebalancing of the automotive sector after the economic crisis.
H & EVs are seen as part of the solution to global warming and urban pollution, and have been increasingly promoted by national and city governments with growing enthusiasm over the last few years. The growing consensus on the need to address global warming will only strengthen this shift. The development of this interesting sector will be determined by political, technological and economic forces.
This potential shift in technologies presents numerous challenges to the automotive industry, which we believe will require careful monitoring and analysis over the coming decade.
www.hybrid-ev.com looks to map the changing pattern of development of the range of propulsion and charging options, from a technical and business perspective, as these become clearer over the next few years. Our intended audience is all those involved in vehicle and component production with an interest in the potentially disruptive effects of this shift on their business, and the new opportunities that will emerge. The news and analysis gathered (http://www.hybrid-ev.com/news) will also be of interest to potential new entrants into the individual transportation market, from the power generation and management, vehicle, component and infrastructure industries, as well as their advisers and investors.
