This segment has experienced rapid growth, which is primarily attributable to rising initiatives by top automakers to introduce potent electric vehicles, rising regulations to cut tailpipe emissions, rising adoption of electric vehicles in developed economies, and global government targets to phase out diesel vehicles by 2030.

Insight by Vehicle Type

The electric commercial vehicle market on the basis of vehicle type is divided into light commercial vehicles, e-scooters and bikes, two-wheelers, and passenger vehicles. In 2021, the passenger vehicle segment with the biggest revenue share dominated the entire electric commercial vehicle market. However, the biggest key player for this market segment to grow is the government. The government’s norms and investment supported the CEV market to step in and it is also anticipated to support the highest during the forecasted period. Additionally rising consumers’ interest and awareness of the E-vehicle segment is attributable to light commercial vehicles are expected to increase at the highest CAGR during the forecast period.

Insight by Cell Format

The electric commercial vehicle market is segmented into the pouch, prismatic, and circular categories based on cell format. Due to its high energy density compared to other types, round cells are predicted to have the quickest growth in the market for electric commercial vehicles over the projected period.

Insight by application

The electric vehicle market is divided into three categories based on application: industrial, commercial, and private. The sector for commercial use is anticipated to develop at the highest CAGR shortly. Due to rising fuel prices, tough immigration laws imposed by governments, an increase in the number of independent delivery vehicles, and the addition of electric motorcars and vehicles, this market segment is expected to grow rapidly. The government-imposed strict emigration morals, rising fuel prices, the growing abandonment of independent delivery trucks, and the growing abandonment of electric motorcars and vehicles are all factors contributing to the segment's quick growth.

Industrial Dynamics

Growth Drivers

The market for electric commercial vehicles is primarily driven by the acceptance of electrification, falling battery prices, rapid uptake of electric buses and vans, government regulations favoring the demand for electric vehicles and the need for fuel-efficient vehicles, and government subsidies or tax breaks on e-vehicle purchases. Additionally, improvements in the automotive industry have sparked the development of economically viable electric vehicles for commercial use, raised consumer awareness of low maintenance and operating costs, and increased adoption of smart vehicle technologies like wireless connectivity, telematics, advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS), GPS, touch sensors, etc., all of which are supporting the market's expansion. Additionally, the global market for commercial electric vehicles is also expanding as a result of scientific advancements in battery technology that will lower cost and lengthen battery life as well as consumer preference for long-haul trucks. For instance, battery OEMs are doing R&D operations to enhance various battery pack kinds to lengthen their trip time.


Several key obstacles that have been identified as impeding market expansion include a lack of charging infrastructure, variances in charging load, and a lack of standardization. For charging electric vehicles, several regions, including China, Europe, the United States, Japan, Korea, and others, have varied standards. To address this issue, certain electric vehicle manufacturers, like Tesla Inc., are concentrating on a worldwide standardization of the charging infrastructure. Nevertheless, it is projected that increasing the use of electric vehicles in the public and commercial sectors will propel the market.
