In 2019, the global small electric vehicle market stood around 2.2 million units and is forecast to grow at a double-digit CAGR to reach 3.2 million units by 2025. Due to strict emission norms and emphasis by the governments of various countries on clean energy vehicles, the small electric vehicle market is increasing at a rapid pace across the globe. According to WHO, air pollution is the leading cause of deaths in countries with poor quality of air. As a result, governments of various countries are offering subsidies on the purchase of small electric vehicles. Furthermore, small electric vehicles have longer lifespan when compared with their diesel counterparts, which is anticipated to positively influence the growth of the small electric vehicle market during the forecasted period.

Global small electric vehicle market can be classified on the basis of battery type, vehicle type, type of technology and by region. Based on the battery type, the market can be segmented into Lithium-ion and Nickel-Metal-Hydride. Lithium-ion segment accounted for the largest share and the segment is poised to grow at an impressive rate during the forecast period as well. In terms of vehicle type, the market has been segmented into Passenger car and Light Commercial Vehicle segments. Passenger car segment is dominating the small electric vehicle market, globally, and this trend is expected to continue over the course of next five years.

In terms of regional analysis, the market has been segmented into North America, Asia-Pacific, and Europe. Asia-Pacific is anticipated to continue as the largest regional market for small electric vehicles due to favorable government initiatives and support. Furthermore, increasing air pollution and reducing cost of batteries are positively influencing the growth of the market in the region. In Asia-Pacific, China dominated the market and the country’s small electric vehicle market is poised to grow at an impressive rate in the coming years as well.
