DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/nsdws7/the_market_for) has announced the addition of the "The Market for Plug-In Electric Vehicles" report to their offering.
This report provides an overview of the plug-in electric vehicle market. Sales revenues for the forecast period 2012 through 2017 are provided. Companies and products covered include Nissan Leaf, Chevy Volt, Toyota Plug-in Prius, and Tesla Model S.
The report looks at the market for plug-in electric vehicles (both PEVs and PHEVs) in key markets. The report provides forecasts to the year 2017 based on the latest information about government incentives (the most important variable), infrastructure readiness, economic development, and oil costs and PEV product pricing.
We find that the market for plug-in is fantastically geographically inconsistent. For example, Norway is the world adoption leader; its neighboring country Sweden is one of Europe's laggards. PEV sales have seen a boom in the Netherlands while much larger Germany buys a fraction of Dutch volumes. In England, charging stations sit idle. The French buy about three times the number of electrics as the Spaniards on a per capita basis. In the U.S., Californians buy nearly 50% of the country's total volume of PEVs.
Though there's a certain inevitability about the long-term success of the market for PEVs, reaching a global mainstream appears to be a decade off in most developed markets and the current bar for success is set extremely low. A PEV fleet of 1% of a country's total is considered a runaway triumph. Only five nations will have sales above 10,000 units in 2014. Only one will break 10% of all vehicle sales during the coming five years.
