Prediction: 480,000 Plug-In Electric Vehicles To Be Sold Globally In 2015

Frost & Sullivan Program Manager, Anjan Hemanth Kumar, states: “Vehicle manufacturers are not just under pressure to adopt green cars, but also need to find the right powertrain technology mix to bring down the fleet emission average. Passenger car industry is pursuing advanced engine technologies such as downsizing, boosting, cylinder deactivation, advanced injection technologies and exhaust after treatment technologies. It is hard to find the right combination. On the other hand, electrification is a major trend witnessed globally from micro hybrids to battery and fuel cell vehicles.”
