Hybrid, PHEV and EV Statistics
Interest in the sales of hybrid, plugin hybrid electric and pure electric new vehicles is increasing.
Generally speaking, cars, SUVs and vans are vehicle types sold in all markets and are first in line for R&D to electrify these types of vehicles. Utes are sold in only a few markets and while popular, tend to be last in line for R&D to electrify them. We do not expect to see many utes models being electrified within the next 12-24 month.
The terms we use are ICE (internal combustion engine only), Hybrid (uses both a combustion engine and an electric engine which uses regenerative braking to charge the battery. Hybrid vehicles do not plug into an external power source), PHEV (plugin hybrid vehicle) and BEV (battery electric vehicle).
