Off-Highway Electric Vehicle Market by Application

High maintenance cost of off-highway electric vehicles

Off-highway electric vehicles have durable operational capability, owing to its working requirements as it operates on uneven terrains, however, are prone to part breakage, part failure, and overheating. Both used and new vehicle show wear & tear over time, however, aging utility vehicles such as ATVs, UTVs, and snowmobiles have completely different maintenance needs. Maintenance of new vehicles for a year is covered under one-year warranty by manufacturer, however, replacement of broken parts is not covered in this warranty. In addition, the cost of the battery and technology makes off-highway EVs costlier as compared to traditional off-highway vehicles. Hence, consumers find conventional off-highway vehicles superior in performance with same or less price. Majority of off-highway electric vehicles are majorly used in uneven terrain, mountains, and uphill, owing to which parts of these vehicles are prone to damage. Thus, regular maintenance of these vehicles for optimum performance is recommended due to damage caused to off-highway electric vehicles by driving on rough terrain. Further, efficiency of gas-powered off-highway vehicles may be less than off-highway electric vehicles, however, it outperforms electric vehicles, in terms of high range and ease of serviceability, whenever a vehicle requires servicing. Therefore, high maintenance cost of off-highway electric vehicle is anticipated to hinder growth of the off-highway EV market.

Technology development in off-highway electric vehicle

In recent years, all mobility solutions have witnessed drastic changes, in terms of technological evolution. Hence, to cater to changing demands of consumers such as cost-effective and operational proficient transportation along with fuel-efficient mobility requirements, market players are relying on electrical components, owing to their output efficiency and lightweight. For instance, in June 2021, Caterpillar announced the launch of the R1700 XE LHD battery electric vehicle at MINExpo, an international trade show sponsored by the National Mining Association. It could carry 15-tonne payload. Furthermore, it was capable of being fully charged in less than 30 minutes using a single charger or in less than 20 minutes using two chargers. 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 BS6 emission standard to control outflow of air pollutants from vehicles. Thus, all these factors collectively escalate demand for off-highway electric vehicles and is expected to create market opportunity during the forecast period.
