Dublin, June 17, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Global Electric Bus Market, By Battery Type (Lithium Ion & Lead Acid), By Application (Intracity, Intercity & Airport Bus), By Bus Length (6-8m, 9-12m, & Above 12m), By Seating Capacity, By Region, Competition Forecast & Opportunities, 2026" report has been added to's offering.

The Global Electric Bus Market stood at around 64.08 thousand units in 2020 and is expected to register growth with a CAGR of around 11.20% by volume in the forecast period.

Various government & semi-government run transport departments are rapidly adopting electric buses throughout the globe. Moreover, in comparison with diesel run buses, electric buses have lower running and maintenance costs, therefore, the demand for electric buses are growing rapidly especially from small and medium enterprises.

According to International Organization of Motor Vehicle Manufacturers (OICA), there were around 1.28 billion passenger and commercial vehicles on road in 2015 and 69.51 million vehicles were sold in 2020. With on road vehicle population increasing briskly, governments are concerned for both greenhouse gas emissions as well as traffic loggings.

On the basis of seating capacity as well as bus length, medium sized buses of seating capacity between 31 to 40 seats and length of 9 to 12 meters, have the most demand due to being suitable for both intracity and intercity routes. Based on battery type, lithium ion is more performance oriented and cost-effective battery type as compared to lead acid batteries.

Therefore, a majority of the demand is generated by lithium ion battery fitted electric buses. In terms of application, due to the shorter ranges of electric powered buses, electric buses are more commonly run on intra city routes. Although with new model launches more performance-oriented vehicles with larger range capacities, intercity travelling is also gaining popularity.
