These insights are included in the report as a major market contributor.

A hybrid electric vehicle (HEV) is an automobile that runs on the energy stored in batteries. It operates on the combination of an internal combustion engine and an electric propulsion system. The battery is charged using regenerative braking that converts the energy, which is lost during coasting and braking into electricity. In comparison to combustion engine-based automobiles, HEVs have lower fuel consumption, carbon-based emissions and maintenance costs, which make them more cost-effective even at low speeds.

Hybrid Electric Vehicle Market Trends:
The increasing demand for fuel-efficient automobiles across the globe is one of the key factors driving the market. Furthermore, growing environmental consciousness among consumers is also providing a boost to the market growth. This has led to an increased emphasis on the development of innovative designs and advanced technologies to produce zero- and low-emission vehicles with soundless operations and high-performance engines. Additionally, the implementation of favourable government initiatives promoting the adoption of electric vehicles (EVs) for sustainable development is also creating a positive outlook for the market. For instance, various incentives, including tax benefits, utility rate reductions, parking privileges and other rebates, are offered to consumers to enhance the adoption rates of HEVs. Apart from this, improvements in the EV charging infrastructure are leading to increased investments by power sector stakeholders in automobile utilities and charging hardware. Other factors, including rapid urbanization, rising disposable incomes and extensive research and development (R&D) activities, are projected to drive the market in the upcoming years.
