Why are Hybrid Electric Vehicle Sales Surging across the United States?

“Electric Vehicle Benefits Promoting Adoption Rates”

  • According to the United States Department of Energy, in 2022 the transportation sector in the United States accounted for nearly 30% of the total country’s energy needs and approximately 70% of the country’s petroleum consumption.

Electric vehicles aid in improving fuel economy and reducing carbon emissions. 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.

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.

“Integration of Digital Technologies Leading to Development of Smart and Fuel-Efficient Hybrid Electric Vehicles”

The fuel efficiency of hybrid electric vehicles is being revolutionized with the help of newer and smarter algorithms such as artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML). Electric vehicles run on an energy management system, helping them maintain an equilibrium between the internal combustion engine and the electric motor. Technical teams of market players are focused on developing highly advanced algorithms to calculate the optimum energy consumption of vehicles. Overall, this increase in fuel efficiency is anticipated to bolster demand for hybrid electric vehicles in the United States.

Why is Western United States Leading the Race in This Market?

“Supportive Local Government Policies in Western United States”

Attribute Western Region
Market Value (2024E) US$ 5.73 Billion
Growth Rate (2024 to 2034) 13.5% CAGR
Projected Value (2034F) US$ 20.3 Billion

The western region of the country is expected to hold a leading market share throughout the forecast period. This part of the U.S. is expected to see a significant uptake in automobile infrastructure development and product innovation due to the recent announcement by the United States government that by the end of 2030, approximately 50% of new vehicles sold will be all-electric, plug-in hybrid, or hydrogen-powered vehicles.

It was also declared by the government that the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) will be tasked with developing aggressive long-term rules to support 2030 targets, including medium- and heavy-duty vehicles.

  • According to the article 'Where Electric Vehicles Are (and Aren’t) Taking Off Across the U.S.', published by The New York Times on 6 March 2024, the West Coast, especially California, leads electric vehicle sales.

This data helps us understand that the registration of electric motors is higher in the western part of the United States, consequently driving overall market growth.

Category-wise Analysis

Which Type of HEV Power Source is Most Popular?

“On-board Electric Generators Highly Effective in Electrification of Vehicles”

Attribute On-board Electric Generators
Segment Value (2024E) US$ 15.68 Billion
Growth Rate (2024 to 2034) 14.3% CAGR
Projected Value (2034F) US$ 59.49 Billion

Increasing shift toward electric vehicles is driving high demand for on-board electric generators. On-board electric generators provide electricity for auxiliary systems such as cooling, heating, and infotainment in traditional internal combustion engines. In HEVs on-board electric generators charge the battery or directly power the electric motor when the battery charge is depleted

Why is Demand for Hybrid Electric Passenger Cars So High?

“Cost-effectiveness and Fuel-efficiency of Hybrid Electric Passenger Cars”

Attribute Hybrid Electric Passenger Cars
Segment Value (2024E) US$ 4.37 Billion
Growth Rate (2024 to 2034) 14.3% CAGR
Projected Value (2034F) US$ 16.67 Billion

Rising popularity of electric motors coupled with a growing number of vehicle ownerships are contributing to the sales growth of hybrid electric passenger cars. Hybrid electric passenger cars are best for stop-and-go driving and are more popular than gasoline vehicles. Thus, cost-effective hybrid passenger cars are gaining traction in the United States.

Competitive Landscape

The United States market is in its nascent stage and is expected to surge ahead on the back of healthy investments, both from market players and the government. Along with this, rising automotive infrastructure development activities are also set to support market growth in a big way over the coming years.

Rising interest in electric vehicles driven by emission control needs is presenting lucrative opportunities for new hybrid electric vehicle manufacturers. Additionally, prominent market players are investing in research and development activities to innovate their product offerings and offer fuel-efficient hybrid vehicles.

  • In April 2024, Ford Motor Co. announced the expansion of its fully hybrid vehicle offerings by 2030 and also pushed back the launch of its new three-row electric vehicles from 2025 to 2027. This strategy is estimated to help Ford remain competitive in the market.
