Alternative fuel and hybrid vehicles are powered by an internal combustion engine that runs on alternative fuels rather than conventional fuels. These vehicles rely on biofuel, biodiesel, fuel cell, natural gas, solar batteries, electricity-based vehicles, nitrogen, diethyl ether, and other fuels. They collect lost energy during braking by storing the captured energy in the battery and using the electric motor as a generator. Alternative fuel and hybrid vehicles rely on regenerative braking and the internal combustion engine to charge and offer low tailpipe emissions and high fuel economy with the power and range of conventional vehicles. These vehicles provide power to auxiliary loads and enhance performance to reduce engine idling when the vehicle is stopped. They reduce the dependence on fossil fuels as alternative fuels are largely produced domestically.
Alternative Fuel and Hybrid Vehicle Market Trends:
At present, the rising sales of hybrid vehicles, along with the increasing demand for commercial electric vehicles (EVs) in the e-commerce sector for last-mile delivery operations, represent one of the key factors supporting the growth of the market. Besides this, there is an increase in the demand for electric-based vehicles with developed electrification systems providing various benefits, such as low carbon emissions, high fuel efficiency, and cost-effectiveness, across the globe. This, coupled with the thriving automobile industry, is currently strengthening the growth of the market. In addition, the rising awareness among the masses about the benefits of using alternative fuel and hybrid vehicles to prevent greenhouse gas emissions and reduce air pollution is propelling the growth of the market. Moreover, governing agencies of various countries are presently implementing stringent regulations to achieve net zero emissions targets. They are also providing subsidies to increase the purchase of EVs, which is catalyzing the demand for alternative fuel and hybrid vehicles. Apart from this, the growing demand for alternative fuel and hybrid vehicles due to the increasing prices of fossil fuels is positively influencing the market. Additionally, key manufacturers are introducing compressed natural gas (CNG) variants of various vehicles and a fuel cell prototype for hydrogen-powered cars, which is projected to bolster the growth of the market.
