Europe electric commercial vehicle market is classified based on propulsion type, vehicle type, range, and country. Based on propulsion type, the market is segmented into BEVs, HEVs, PHEVs, and FCEVs. Hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs) currently constitute a majority of the market because they are relatively inexpensive and provide better range/autonomy. However, the popularity of battery electric vehicles is steadily increasing due to their lower ownership costs and reliability, low maintenance, and easier & faster charging and hence are expected to witness robust growth in upcoming years.
In terms of vehicle type, electric commercial vehicles are distinguished into three categories buses, trucks & light commercial vehicles (LCVs). On the basis of purpose and variety of utility, the market is majorly contributed by pick-up trucks. However, the penetration of electric buses & trucks is increasing and is expected to continue to grow the market sustainably.
Based on range, the market is segmented among vehicles with range/autonomy of up to 150 miles, 151-250 miles, 251-500 miles, and 501 miles & above. Vehicles with a range of up to 150 miles contribute most of the market, but as manufacturers are developing economical batteries with better capacities, vehicles with a higher range will be growing the market in the next five years.
