About Hybrid Electric Vehicle

HEVs represent the transformation of the global automotive industry. HEVs are an amalgamation of ICE vehicles and electric vehicles (EVs). Currently, traditional ICE vehicles dominate the industry due to their tested and proven engine mechanism, performance, and buyers’ preferences. The production of HEVs started from the 19th century in Germany where Ferdinand Porsche made the first gasoline-electric hybrid automobile, the Lohner-Porsche Mixte. In 1905, Henri Pieper developed the historic HEV model, which had similar technology as the present one. This model from 1905 included an electric motor/generator, batteries, and a small engine. Batteries could be charged through electric motors while cruising at lower speeds. Wheels received power through both the motor and engine during extra torque requirements such as driving up a hill.

Technavio’s analysts forecast the global hybrid electric vehicle market to grow at a CAGR of 37.16% during the period 2016-2020.
