This is the world’s first report forecasting the global market for electric buses and
taxis both hybrid and pure electric. It separately forecasts the market in the most
important country, China, and it takes a detailed look at technologies present and future
with a blunt assessment of reasons for failure and threats for the future, not just the
positive aspects. The market for electric buses and taxis will rise 8.7 times from 2012 to
2022, approaching $60 billion not long after that. The buses will be designed exclusively
for purpose, though some will have power trains used for trucks as well. The taxis will
largely consist of regular cars and people movers with modest adaptation. We explain why,
for both, this is the decade of the hybrid but with pure electric versions coming up fast.
China will become by far the largest market for both electric buses and electric taxis
within the decade. This report looks at the statistics and trends for conventional buses
and taxis, the government incentives, paybacks and new technologies with detailed tables
and figures to summarise the situation, so the reader can understand the situation with
ease. There are no rambling anecdotes or cut and paste of catalog items here – this is all
summary, comparison and prediction with numbers, unit values, specifications and a
profusion of images.

This uniquely up to date reference book is extremely thorough. Just one of the tables
lists 78 hybrid bus manufacturers with country and product image, another lists 53 pure
electric bus manufacturers with country and product image and another compares 68
lithium-ion traction battery manufacturers with cathode and anode chemistry and other
technical detail and who is using these batteries – naming bus, car and other companies
using them, explaining who is winning and why. There is a table comparing eight electric
taxi projects with country, image and commentary, including technical detail, and another
comparing many fuel cell bus trials. Many of the figures are graphs, bar charts, pie
charts, and other analysis to allow you to assess the situation quickly and conveniently.

The market forecasts cover units, unit prices and total market value 2012-2022 backed
up by forecasts for the market for all types of bus taken together, each for global and
separately China. Taxi number, unit value and market value is similarly forecasted and the
whole is put in the context of statistics for past sales and production output by
manufacturer and forecasts for the electric vehicle market as a whole. The leading
suppliers are identified. Transmission manufacturers are compared using sectioned
technical diagrams. There is a glossary of terms and one hour of free consultancy with
every purchase will answer any questions you have remaining.
