Improved battery technology has boosted expected sales of commercial EVs.

A new report from Navigant Research shows that global sales are expected to reach 160,000 per year by 2023. That’s a huge increase from the 16,000 level achieved in 2014.

Due to advances in battery technology and range, electric hybrid vehicles are becoming a realistic option for commercial applications.

This is especially true when a lot of city driving in stop-start traffic is involved, reports Pure Green Cars.

Governments’ action to reduce emissions from city traffic will encourage take-up in large urban areas. Japan is forecast to achieve 21.2% conversion to electric commercial vehicles by 2023.

David Alexander, senior research analyst with Navigant research commented “Overall, we expect diesel hybrid drive to remain the most popular of the electrically assisted medium- and heavy-duty vehicle powertrains for the whole of the forecast period. Battery-electric commercial vehicles will also see growth in demand within urban fleets that average low daily mileage.”

This forecast is good news for London mayor, Boris Johnson. He is determined that London will become the first Ultra Low Emission zone by 2020.

London has a fleet of 800 hybrid buses with 900 more to be introduced by the end of next year. London’s bus fleet will then be 20% hybrid.
