This is the world's first report forecasting the global market for electric
buses and taxis both hybrid and pure electric. It separately forecasts the
market in the most important country, China, and it takes a detailed look at
technologies present and future with a blunt assessment of reasons for failure
and threats for the future, not just the positive aspects.
The market for electric buses and taxis will multiply over 8 times in the next decade,
approaching $60 billion not long after that. The buses will be designed
exclusively for purpose, though some will have power trains used for trucks as
well. The taxis will largely consist of regular cars and people movers with
modest adaptation. We explain why, for both, this is the decade of the hybrid
but with pure electric versions coming up fast. China will become by far the
largest market for both electric buses and electric taxis within the decade.
This report looks at the statistics and trends for conventional buses and
taxis, the government incentives, paybacks and new technologies with detailed
tables and figures to summarise the situation, so the reader can understand
the situation with ease. There are no rambling anecdotes or cut and paste of
catalog items here - this is all summary, comparison and prediction with
numbers, unit values, specifications and a profusion of images.
