The Global Hybrid Truck Market is expected to reach USD 38.0 billion by 2030, at a CAGR of 6.2% during the forecast period 2022 to 2030.


Market Overview

A hybrid truck, sometimes known as a hybrid electric truck, is a vehicle powered by an internal combustion engine and a combination of an electric motor and a battery system. An on-board generator generates electricity, which is managed by integrated software and sent to a battery pack. The electric motor periodically assists the vehicle in operating in an all-electric or EV mode, allowing it to travel a short distance solely on electricity, which sometimes supplements and sometimes temporarily replaces the gas engine. Additionally, the electric motor allows a manufacturer to reduce the size of a specific exemplary gas engine in order to increase fuel efficiency in comparison to the equivalently equipped non-hybrid counterpart.


There are three types of hybrid trucks: full, mild, and micro, each with its own hybrid system architecture. The fully hybrid trucks utilize more powerful electric motors and also have larger battery capacity compared to the other types. This improved the vehicle's fuel efficiency by more than 35% as compared to regular trucks or non-hybrid trucks. Mild hybrid trucks often include minimal modifications such as engine start/stop mechanisms that turn off the gasoline engine whenever the vehicle comes to a halt. Mild hybrid trucks utilize smaller electric motors and batteries than full hybrid vehicles. In addition, the electric motor is employed as a starting motor to instantly restart the gas engine when the driver's foot is removed from the brake pedal or depressed on the gas pedal. Mild hybrid trucks also have 15%-18% higher fuel efficiency than a gasoline-only variant of the same weight.

Driving Factors

The rise in the price of fossil fuels, the scarcity of crude oil, the development in automation, and government laws and policies against diesel and gasoline-powered cars owing to pollution are driving the global hybrid truck market's growth. The benefits of hybrid truck technology include low fuel consumption, high efficiency, and low pollutants. The adoption of modern technologies in industrialized and developing countries worldwide, as well as the major growth of the automotive industry, are key factors fueling the expansion of the worldwide hybrid truck market.


Increased hybridization, such as micro-mild-full, reduces both fuel consumption and carbon dioxide emissions by 3-10%, 15-25%, and 20-30%, based on the maximum engine and electric machine power, respectively. Since lithium batteries offer the opportunity for more interior energy storage that is both reliable and portable, they have led to a renewed interest in BEVs and hybrids. The market introduction of these relatively new types of hybrid vehicles is dependent on progress in the development of new batteries that can withstand frequent and rapid load changes.


Restraining Factors

The global hybrid truck market's growth is hampered by high prices and increased maintenance costs. Furthermore, increased demand for battery electric vehicles and fuel cell electric vehicles would be a major impediment to the growth of the hybrid truck market.


Market Segmentation

  • In 2021, the full hybrid segment is witnessing significant CAGR growth over the forecast period

On the basis of type, the Global Hybrid Truck Market is segmented into full hybrid, mild hybrid, and micro hybrid. Among these, the full hybrid is expected to increase at a significant CAGR during the forecast period owing to increasing electrification in the pickup trucks and heavy-duty segment. The electric motor in full hybrid vehicles allows them to drive short distances at low speeds while running entirely on electricity. It can also raise the frequency and duration of its electric motor use to improve the efficiency of the gasoline engine. For instance, in Toyota's Prius V from 2021, the majority of full hybrids include some form of graphics so that the operator may observe the hybrid's working state in real-time.


  • In 2021, the parallel hybrid segment is dominating the market over the forecast period

On the basis of technology, the Global Hybrid Truck Market is segmented into parallel hybrid, series hybrid, series-parallel hybrid, and plug-in hybrid. Among these, the parallel hybrid segment is witnessing significant CAGR growth over the forecast period. With parallel hybrid systems, both an internal combustion engine and an electric motor are incorporated, and they can operate the vehicle either individually or jointly. The parallel hybrids rely more on regenerative braking, the ICE can also operate as a generator for further recharge. As a result, they become more successful in city stop-and-go traffic. A parallel hybrid design is also used by General Motors' Parallel Hybrid Truck (PHT) and BAS Hybrids such as the Saturn Vue and Aura Greenline and Chevy Malibu hybrids.


  • In 2021, the light-duty trucks segment is dominating the market with the largest market share of 49% over the forecast period

Based on the vehicle type, the Global Hybrid Truck Market is segmented into light-duty trucks, heavy-duty trucks, and others. Among these, the light-duty trucks segment is dominating the market with the largest market share of 49% over the forecast period. Light-duty trucks that are widely employed with hybrid technology include pickup trucks and vans. As global demand for light-duty commercial vehicles increases, major OEMs like RAM, Daimler, and others are manufacturing and introducing new products with innovative technologies. For example, an American commercial vehicle's 1500 DT pickup truck is scheduled to go on the market in Australia in May 2021. The light truck is powered by a 5.7-liter gasoline V8 engine with a mild hybrid system. The system includes a 48-volt battery pack.
