According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled "Alternative Fuel and Hybrid Vehicle Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2023-2028," the global alternative fuel and hybrid vehicle market size reached US$ 524 Billion in 2022. Alternative fuel refers to any fuel that is not derived from petroleum or diesel, such as hydrogen, biofuels and natural gas. It is a renewable source of energy and emits fewer pollutants, making it a viable option for powering vehicles. On the other hand, a hybrid vehicle is a type of automobile that uses two or more sources of power to propel the vehicle. The sources of power used are usually an internal combustion engine and an electric motor. As a result, alternative fuel and hybrid vehicles are gaining traction among the masses due to the rising awareness regarding the environmental impact of traditional gasoline-powered vehicles. They offer a cleaner and more efficient way of transportation, and with continual advancements in technology, they are becoming more practical and affordable for everyday use.
