The growth in popularity of low-speed EVs is due to stricter pollution norms and an inclining tend towards more fuel-efficient vehicles with low emissions. As EVs operate on batteries they rely on batteries as a fuel source.  Recently, there has been an increasing trend utilizing new batteries such as molten salt, zinc-air, and various nickel-based designs majorly most of the EVs today use lithium-ion batteries. The electric vehicle was primarily designed to replace conventional ways of transport as they lead to environmental pollution. Low-speed electric vehicles have gained popularity owing to numerous technological advancements. The electric vehicle outperforms the conventional vehicle providing higher fuel economy, low carbon emission, and maintenance.

Low Speed Electric Vehicle Market

The market growth is driven by stringent government rules and regulations toward vehicle emissions and increases in fuel costs. In addition, the rise in pollution, technological advancements, surge in the automobile industry, and decrease in fossil fuel reserves have fueled the growth in the development and production of low-speed electric vehicles.

For instance, on June 2023, Textron Inc. launched a new street-legal Liberty LSV and model update for Freedom RXV. The newly launched models are specifically designed for golf courses and use in the neighborhood both the vehicles are street legal.

Similarly, in August 2023, Yamaha Motor Co., Ltd. developed Low-Speed Electric Mobility for first- and last-mile transportation to address the national transportation issue in Japan. The company is developing vehicles for running on public roads at speeds under 20 km/h, especially for local elderly residents.

Factors such as stringent government rules and regulations towards vehicle emission and rise in fuel cost supplement the growth of the low-speed electric vehicle industry. However, the high cost associated with EVs, lack of proper charging infrastructure, and as the technology is still in the maturing stage are hampering the growth of the low-speed electric vehicle market share globally. However, proactive government initiatives and improvement in electric vehicle R&D and development of its batteries is predicted to create growth opportunity for the key players operating in the market.

Stringent government rules and regulations towards vehicle emissions

Power used to move traditional vehicles is generated by an ICE engine. In a combustion engine the fuel burns in combustion chamber releasing carbon dioxide. Similarly, a combustion engine vehicle also emits other major greenhouse gases like nitrous oxide, methane, and others, leading to environmental pollution.

However, as electric vehicles utilize electric motors they don not emit any pollution.Regions such as the European Union, China, India, Japan, Australia, and the U.S have put forward strict rules and regulations related to vehicle emissions. These legislations require automakers to implement cutting-edge technologies in the product in order to reduce emission.

For example, the Clean Air Act (CAA), which was implemented in 1963 and underwent several modifications, mandates that automakers comply to emission standards in order to sell their vehicle. Similarly, The California Air Resources Board (CARB) introduced the Zero-Emission Vehicle Regulation. The regulation is designed to achieve long-term emission reduction, which supports the adoption of hybrid and electric vehicles in California and aims to achieve 100% zero emission by 2035, these regulations are anticipated to create favorable conditions for market growth.

Rise in fuel cost

In recent years, there has been a steep increase in the price of crude oil, majorly due to the price of crude oil being controlled by the OPEC countries. This resulted in an increasing shift of people towards cheaper and eco-friendly modes of transportation.

In contrast to a steep increase in fuel prices, major countries around the world have seen a decline or stability in price of electricity. For a country that is heavily dependent on fuel-based automobiles, there has been an increasing trend towards the use of EVs. Moreover, as technology is continuously developing, consumers are believing EVs as an alternative to traditional ICE vehicles.As a result of this, the growth of the market is due to an increase in the price of fuel and the inkling preference of users towards electric vehicles.

High cost of electric vehicles 

High vehicle prices are a major barrier to low-speed electric vehicle market growth. Batteries and other car technology used in EVs are expensive. Modern EVs also use lithium-ion batteries and other advanced driving technologies, which increases the cost of low-speed electric vehicles and slows market growth. Governments worldwide are providing tax exemptions and subsidies to promote electric vehicle adoption. This initiative is projected to boost electric vehicle sales during the review period.

Low Speed Electric Vehicle Market by Region

Proactive government initiatives 

Growth of urbanization and rise in attractive incentives for electric vehicles from various governments are expected to present lucrative opportunities for the expansion of the market. Due to consumer inclination toward electric vehicles, there has been robust growth in the development of public charging infrastructures, vehicle maintenance infrastructure, battery recycling, and more.

For instance, in India, according to data from the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways, there were a total of 1,037,011 electric vehicles registered within the country, accounting for 6.4% of the total automobile sales. The increase in sales is majorly due to increase in adoption of cars for commercial and personal use. Moreover, in 2021, the government released a handbook guide to EV infrastructure in India the focuses on the development of infrastructure in the country. In 2021, the publicly accessible charging station accounted for 900 in India, which jumped to nearly 11,000 in 2022. Countries around the globe are fostering the development of EVs, which is expected to provide opportunities for the low speed electric vehicle market share during the forecast period.
