The widespread adoption of electric mid- & large buses is poised to gain momentum globally, propelled by factors such as stringent emission regulations, declining battery prices, the establishment of low-emission zones, government purchase subsidies, and tax exemptions. This surge in the embrace of electric transit buses has facilitated the development of a global supply chain for alternative powertrain buses. The escalating imperative to curb emissions, particularly in densely populated urban centers, will drive the demand for electric mid- & large buses in intra-city passenger transportation. According to the International Energy Agency (IEA), a substantial increase in the global production of batteries for electric mid- & large buses, featuring a 100 kWh capacity for Battery Electric Vehicles (BEVs), from 25,000 to 100,000 units annually, has the potential to significantly slash battery pack production costs per kilowatt-hour by 13%, nearly one-third lower than the existing price of USD 300/kWh. It is noteworthy that the cost of batteries is directly linked to their capacity, and while initial prices for high-capacity batteries were elevated, ongoing reductions have made them more economically viable for end users. Ongoing research is also focused on expanding battery pack sizes to support the diverse range requirements of electric mid- & large buses while concurrently reducing overall costs. With declining lithium prices, the adoption of electric mid- & large buses is expected to rise in future.

Restraint: EV Batteries related safety issues

While EV batteries used in electric mid- & large buses undergo rigorous testing to ensure safety, the US National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) reports that a notable portion of EV fires in the US between 2013 and 2017 were attributed to battery power systems. Factors such as temperature fluctuations, heavy rain, and overcharging were identified as primary contributors to EV battery fires. To address safety issues, manufacturing companies globally, including those in the US, China, Japan, and the European Union (EU), are mandated to prioritize continuous monitoring of battery safety, health, and performance. Specific electric mid- & large bus standards focus on limiting chemical spillage, securing batteries during crashes, and isolating the chassis to prevent electric shock. Additionally, ensuring optimal working temperature and protection necessitates advanced battery management systems, but their development demands a substantial investment of time and resources from manufacturers. The increased development costs subsequently impact the overall initial cost of electric vehicles, posing a financial burden on buyers. In the electric mid- & large bus context, the size of the battery pack, influenced by driving range requirements, directly affects the cost and complicates the vehicle's body and chassis design. Given that these batteries may require replacement once or twice during the bus's operational life, contingent on factors like annual distance traveled, operating temperature, and charging rates, the associated high initial and maintenance costs emerge as significant constraints for market growth

Opportunity: Innovation in Payment Models

Electric mid- & large bus will see a significant shift in the purchasing behaviors of operators and cities. This will see shifts away from CAPEX to OPEX based purchasing, including the utilization of new business models such as “bus-as-a-service”, “battery-as-a-service” and “depot-as-a-service” due to the increased CAPEX cost of eBus’s and the requirements for long term support of batteries and infrastructure. For public transport operators, NXP’s Mifare introduced smartcards and NFC ticketing solutions. In most cities, the original transit cards are no longer necessary.

Challenge: Developing charging infrastructure requires huge capital investment

Electric mid- & large buses face a trade-off between longer charging durations and a lower driving range per charge, with battery performance and lifespan crucially influencing both their effectiveness and costs. Lithium-ion batteries are progressively displacing lead-acid, nickel-cadmium, and nickel-metal hydride batteries in Electric mid- & large buses due to their extended lifespan. However, lithium-ion batteries exhibit limitations in capacity for powering heavy commercial vehicles like electric mid- & large buses, particularly in cold climates where charging-discharging efficiency decreases, impacting power delivery. According to Molecular Diversity Preservation International (MDPI), current electric mid- & large buses grapple with insufficient battery capacity, affecting their cooling capabilities. Presently available charging infrastructure also contributes to longer charging times, with the average duration to charge an electric mid- & large bus from 0% to 100% at a 7-kW charging point exceeding 4 hours. Additionally, industry experts highlight the need for an expanded network of charging stations, particularly in urban areas of Europe, North America, and other developed regions. Disparities in charging infrastructure are noted, with fewer charging stations in Eastern Europe compared to Northern Europe.

Market Ecosystem

Electric Mid- and Large (9-14m) Bus Market

City/transit bus to dominate the electric mid- and large (9-14m) bus market, by application
