Market Leaders - Electric Commercial Vehicle Market

The global electric commercial vehicle market size is projected to reach 1,890 thousand units by 2027 from a projected 261 thousand units in 2020, at a CAGR of 32.7%. The base year for the report is 2018, and the forecast period is from 2020 to 2027. The electric commercial vehicle segment has witnessed rapid evolution with governments across the world promoting electrification of public transport fleets and with the increasing demand for zero emission vehicles in the logistics sector.

Advancements in battery pack technologies and electric powertrains are some of the major factors driving the growth of the electric commercial vehicle market. Factors such as a rise in pollution and environmental hazards, stringent government regulations, and stiff competition have compelled automotive OEMs to make fuel-efficient and environment-friendly vehicles. In this pursuit, automotive OEMs and component manufacturers are exploring ways to develop and design commercial vehicles that can meet the standards of fuel efficiency as well as vehicle emission.
