Industry Dynamics

Growth Drivers

The average cost of operation and maintenance of electric three-wheelers are substantially low as compared to conventional three-wheelers hence several countries in the world have a high rate of usage of three-wheelers, which were traditionally powered by IC engines. As many of these internal combustion engine three-wheelers are inefficient emitting substantial amounts of particulate matter and black carbon. The expenditure on R&D of electric three-wheeler manufacturers is increasing due to the growing emission control norms that shall eventually allow them to market them as the future of intracity mobility.

Governments and organizations across the world have initiated various schemes and initiatives, which encourage buyers to choose electric three-wheelers over conventional vehicles. Such activities are predicted to propel the integration of electric three-wheelers and this may help the transformation from fossil fuels-based mobility to electric mobility, thereby, driving the growth of the market. The market is driven by the factors like increase in adoption of electric vehicles, strict government norm for pollution control and increasing awareness about harmful effects of emissions from gasoline and diesel vehicles.


The major factors that are the main restraints for the growth of three-wheeler vehicles market are the low range of distance covered and heavy battery pack. Lack of charging infrastructure is a top limit to electric vehicle adoption, especially in the United States and the United Kingdom. Public charging is critical for supporting electric vehicle growth, even though most electric vehicles are charged at work or home. Furthermore, higher initial costs and a lack of standardized charging infrastructure also hinders the market.
