U.S. Hybrid Electric Vehicle Sales Analysis (2017-2021) Vs Market Predictions (2022-2032)

Hybrid electric vehicles combine an electric propulsion system with a conventional internal combustion engine. The presence of an electric powertrain aids in achieving better fuel economy than a conventional vehicle and also provides several other benefits such as low maintenance costs, reduced operational costs, and less pollution.

The hybrid electric vehicles market in the United States is witnessing technological breakthroughs with manufacturers fulfilling the demands of consumers preferring fully hybrid or mild-hybrid vehicles. The market is also seeing high demand for electric car battery chargers.

Thus, rising inclination of end users towards electric vehicles and hydrogen vehicles is estimated to provide a gain of 270 BPS to the United States hybrid electric vehicles market during the assessment period.

  • Short Term (2022 Q2 to 2025): Demand is anticipated to increase on the back of the several benefits of electric vehicles as compared to conventional vehicles, such as lower fuel costs, reduced emissions, etc.
  • Medium Term (2025-2028): Ongoing factors such as climate change and commitments to reach net-zero emissions will drive demand for hybrid electric automobiles.
  • Long Term (2028-2032): Long-term investments in electric vehicles and ongoing research & development on fuel efficiency are likely to propel market growth.

The United States hybrid electric vehicles market expanded at the rate of 10.3% from 2017 to 2021. According to Fact.MR, a market research and competitive intelligence provider, the U.S. market is projected to surge ahead at 13.8% CAGR through 2032.

Market share analysis of hybrid electric vehicles by power source and region is provided in the above image. Under power source, stored electricity hybrid electricity vehicles dominated the market with 78.3% share in 2021.

Why are Hybrid Electric Vehicle Sales Surging across the U.S.?

“Rapidly Rising Awareness about Electric Vehicle Benefits”

Electric vehicles aid in improving fuel economy and reducing carbon emissions. The transportation sector in the United States accounted for nearly 30% of total U.S. energy needs and approximately 70% of the United States' consumption of petroleum.

The use of energy-efficient vehicles, such as electric automobiles, can aid in supporting the economy and lead to the diversification of the transportation fleet. Several fuel sources to generate electricity are resulting in a more secure energy source for the electrified portion of the transportation sector, leading to the security of the nation.

In addition, hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs) use less fuel than conventional vehicles as they come with electric-drive technologies, thereby boosting vehicle efficiency via regenerative braking. These electric vehicles are capable of being powered solely by electricity.

All these factors will go on to support hybrid electric automobiles market growth in the U.S, during the forecast years of 2022-2032.

“Need for Fuel Efficiency to Drive Hybrid Electric Automobile Sales”

The fuel efficiency of hybrid electric vehicles is being revolutionized with the help of newer and smarter algorithms. Electric vehicles are dependent on an energy management system, helping them to maintain an equilibrium between the internal combustion engine and the electric motor. Technical teams at several universities are now developing highly-nuanced algorithms to calculate the optimum energy consumption of vehicles.

  • For instance, a new algorithm developed by a team at Technical University can calculate optimal energy use faster than other systems, and this can increase fuel efficiency by nearly 50%.

As these algorithms are highly complex, upcoming research is likely to focus on reducing the computational efforts of algorithms to improve drivability. Overall, this increase in fuel efficiency is anticipated to bolster demand for hybrid electric vehicles in the U.S. market during the forecast years.
