E-SUV Market Statistics 2030 -

The global e-SUV market was valued at $35,572.5 million in 2020, and is projected to reach $252,721.7 million by 2030, registering a CAGR of 25.1%. Asia-Pacific was the highest revenue contributor, accounting for $13,926.6 million in 2020, and is estimated to reach $111,071.2 million by 2030, with a CAGR of 27.0%.    

E-SUV refers to the electric sports utility vehicle, which drives through the hybrid or battery electric propulsion systems that combines off-road vehicle as well as road-going passenger vehicle. E-SUV are equipped with all-wheel drive (AWD) or four-wheel drive system (4WD) to operate on both rough terrain surface and public roads to attain operational requirements. E-SUV is a popular amongst the electric passenger vehicle owners, owing to its operational capability, high end technology enabled vehicles, along with improved safety. E-SUV has several benefits over conventional automotive, including improved vehicle dynamics, reduced fuel consumption, and low noise electric drive. However, e-SUV is associated with high cost from all aspects such as acquisition cost and maintenance cost compared to other passenger vehicles.


Factors, such as increase in penetration of fuel-efficient mobility solution and decrease in battery cost per KWH are expected to drive growth of the e-SUV market. However, decrease in sales and production of automotive and high manufacturing cost of electric driven SUV restrain the market growth. On the contrary, growth in developing nations, and development of e-SUV integrated with high-end technologies are projected to offer lucrative growth opportunities for the market players.

The global e-SUV market is segmented on the basis of propulsion, type, seating capacity, and region. On the basis of propulsion, the market is divided into battery electric vehicle and hybrid vehicle. On the basis of type, it is categorized into compact crossover, crossover, mid-size, and full-size. By seating capacity, it is fragmented into 5-seater, and 6-seater, and above. Region-wise, the market is analyzed across North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and LAMEA.

Leading players and their key business strategies have been analyzed in the report to gain a competitive insight into the market. Key players covered in the report include BMW Group, BYD Company Limited, Daimler AG, Ford Motor Company, Groupe Renault, Honda Motor Co., Ltd, Kia Corporation, Tata Motors, Tesla, Volkswagen AG, and Volvo Car Corporation. 

Increase in penetration of fuel-efficient mobility solution

In the recent years, the automotive industry has witnessed drastic change in terms of technological evolution. To cater to the changing demands of consumers, OEMs are relying on electrical components, owing to their output efficiency and lightweight; thus, making vehicle electrification a fuel economic solution. In addition, hybrid and electric vehicles are fuel efficient transportation solution as compare to gasoline-driven vehicles. Moreover, emission from vehicles is a crucial factor, as harmful greenhouse gases are released, which increase environmental and health concerns. Thus, governments across the globe are implementing vehicle emission norms to control greenhouse emission and maintain environmental balance. Manufacturers need to comply with these regulations to control the emission level. For instance, from April 2020, the Government of India implemented the BS6 emission standard to control the outflow of air pollutants from vehicles. Furthermore, electrification is the future step as majority of the carmakers are in-lining toward the hybrid driven vehicles development to cater the changing requirement of the end users and policy makers to cope up with green mobility requirements. For instance, in 2021, Groupe Renault goals to achieve 35% from hybrid models and 30% of sales from fully electric cars by 2025. Thus, all these factors collectively escalate the demand for e-SUV in the near future.

Hybrid Vehicle segment is projected as the most lucrative segments

Decrease in sales and production of automotive

The automotive industry has witnessed decline in the overall growth from the last straight three years, which results in reduced sales as well as production of automotive. This is majorly attributed to changes in manufacturing standard of the automotive and low consumer confidence for buying the vehicles due to uncertainty in the government regulations regarding emission and safety, which, in turn, increases the prices of automotive. The growth of the e-SUV market movement is completely dependent on the automotive industry outlook. Thus, lowering automotive demand and weaken vehicle sales outlook is expected to hamper the growth of the overall market. According to OICA (Organisation Internationale des Constructeurs d'Automobiles) registered total automotive production of 95.6 Mn units in 2018, and it has reached 77.6 Mn units in 2020. Moreover, the automotive industry is witnessing slower growth than expected, which is likely to downturn the demand for e-SUV market in the upcoming years.

Mid-Size segment is projected as the most lucrative segments

High manufacturing cost of electric driven SUV

Electric driven vehicles are advantageous over conventional engine driven vehicles, but the cost of electric vehicles is much higher than internal combustion engine-powered vehicles. The main shortcomings of the existing lithium-ion battery technologies are their low energy density and high costs of manufacturing (a significant fraction of the total electric vehicle price). Electric vehicles are getting immensely popular across the globe. However, due to their high costs, the battery-powered vehicles have managed to occupy a low share in the sales of automobile in several countries. For instance, consumers in the UK purchased more than 75,000 electric cars in till October 2020. However, the UK market share of battery-powered cars was still only 5.5%. The cheapest electric cars available in the Europe market start at around $25,000. This is about twice the price of an entry-level gasoline-powered car. Electric sports utility vehicles are much spacious than the compact and mid-size passenger cars which directly influence the overall pricing of the vehicle by considering the material requirements and manufacturing cost. The high-cost factor associated with e-SUV is anticipated to hamper the growth of the e-SUV market over the forecast timeframe.

Development of e-SUV integrated with high-end technologies

Since their introduction, electric sports utility vehicles have witnessed several technological advancements in battery technologies, charging efficiency, and range. The improved efficiency of electric sports utility vehicles has resulted in the launch of several all-electric and hybrid models in the market. The International Energy Agency (IEA) predicts that the number of electric vehicles across the globe will be 125 million by 2030. Although the advancements in lithium-ion battery technologies have been quite slow over the years, the on-going improvements in the higher-yield fabrication process, anode & cathode material, cell chemistry, and economies of scale are anticipated to result in a significant reduction in battery cost over the years. Moreover, developments regarding the search for outdated lithium-ion battery alternatives, such as miniaturized solid oxide fuel cells, micro-capacitors, gold nanowire technology, aluminum-graphite, and graphene polymer, are anticipated to offer more efficient and viable electric sports utility vehicles over the years. A major issue with the current fleet of electric sports utility vehicles is the high charging time. To overcome this issue, companies, such as, Porche has developed a supercharging solution that can recharge the car in 15 minutes. Other players are also anticipated to deploy charging stations to provide hassle-free and fast recharging for electric sports utility vehicles across Europe. Such vital technological developments are projected to bolster the growth of the sports utility vehicles market over the forecast timeframe.
