Dublin, Oct. 11, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The Global and China Hybrid Electric Vehicle Research Report, 2022 has been added to from offer.

Hybrid research: China’s hybrid electric vehicle penetration rate will reach 22% within five years

With the development of automotive energy saving and new energy technology and the promotion of low-carbon emission reduction policies around the world, fuel saving and low-carbon emission have been in the spotlight. honor of automotive development, and hybrid electric vehicles have become the current R&D focus. automobile industry.

The commercialization of hybrid vehicles has been developing for more than 20 years, with four major markets in the world: Europe, the United States, Japan and China, which are differentiated by their technology, their strategy and their market. Different automakers are also diversifying their hybrid system architectures. Currently, hybrid technologies vary across technology platforms.

Hybrid vehicles are accelerating the pace of replacing fuel-powered vehicles in China

According to statistics, 6.495 million new energy passenger cars (EV+PHEV) were sold globally in 2021, up 107.9% year-on-year with market share hitting a record high of 9%; in which the sales volume of battery electric (EV) passenger cars increased 69% year-on-year to 4.6 million units, and the sales volume of plug-in hybrid electric passenger cars ( PHEV) increased 31% year-over-year to approximately 1.9 million units. In 2021, the global sales volume of energy-efficient HEVs jumped more than 20% year-on-year to around 3.5 million units.

Catalyzed by a series of policies such as emissions regulations, measures for parallel management of corporate average fuel consumption (CAFC) and passenger car companies’ new energy vehicle (NEV) credits, the Leaf Road 2.0 for energy-saving and new-energy vehicle technologies, energy-energy-saving and new-energy vehicles are booming.

Low fuel consumption and the Parallel Management Measures of Corporate Average Fuel Consumption Credits (CAFCs) and New Energy Vehicles (NEVs) from Private Car Manufacturers have prompted automakers to accelerate the transformation to electrification and accelerate the deployment of 48V, HEV, REEV, PHEV and other hybrid roadmaps.

In 2021, the sales volume of hybrid passenger cars in China reached 1.778 million units, including 470,000 PHEVs, 105,000 REEVs, 689,000 HEVs and 513,000 48V mild hybrids. With the development of hybrid systems from Chinese independent brands, PHEVs will outsell HEVs and 48V mild hybrids by 2022. REEVs have performed well since launch and will continue to grow at a relatively high growth rate in 2022 to 2027.

The penetration rate of hybrid electric passenger cars in China will reach 8.3% in 2021, and it is expected to reach 22% by 2027 with sales of over 5.5 million units.

After several years of development, Chinese independent-brand automakers have made significant progress in hybrid vehicle technology, even surpassing Japanese companies such as Toyota and Honda in some aspects of performance.

OEMs have mass-produced a new generation of hybrid architecture with integrated electric drive DHE + DHT +

From a technical route selection point of view:

  • 48V hybrid technology maintains steady growth by continuously improving engine efficiency and level of electrification. At this stage, it is mainly worn by foreign equipment manufacturers;

  • Models based on HEV technology pay more attention to the development of energy saving, cost reduction, system simplification, etc. ;

  • PHEV technology is developing towards low power consumption and high cost performance, and China has explored independent development of PHEV technology path;

  • REEV technology is complementary to other hybrid technologies due to its simple structure. The long battery life and driving experience are well received by consumers. Driven by star models such as Li, AITO and Voyah, it will grow rapidly in the coming years.

From the perspective of OEM hybrid technology platform configuration, domestic OEMs have independently developed DHE (hybrid special engine) + DHT (hybrid special transmission assembly), and the platform supports multiple hybrid architectures such as HEV, PHEV and REEV at the same time.
