Global Solar Vehicle Market Forecast to 2030 - Use of Vehicle-To-Grid (V2G) EV Charging Stations for Electric Vehicles

Dublin, April 30, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Solar Vehicle Market by EV (BEV, HEV & PHEV), Vehicle Type (PC & CV), Battery (Lithium-ion, Lead acid, & Lead carbon), Solar Panel (monocrystalline & polycrystalline), Neighborhood vehicles, Charging Stations, and Region - Global Forecast to 2030" report has been added to's offering.

The global market is estimated to grow from 8,955 units by 2022 at a CAGR of 36.4% to reach 107,380 units by 2030.

The consistent rise in emissions by automobiles has forced the usage of ecofriendly vehicles which also comply with the stringent emissions norms regulated by various governments. Also, major OEMs are focusing on developing zero-emission vehicles to reduce the use of fossil fuels and their subsequent emissions. These factors are anticipated to push the growth of the market. However, low operational efficiency of these vehicles is considered to be a major restraint for the growth of the market.

A solar vehicle is an electric vehicle integrated with solar panels. Generally, solar panels consist of photovoltaic cells that help to convert solar energy into electric energy. The propulsion of solar vehicles is offered through solar energy, and the efficiency of solar modules defines the propulsive force of the vehicle.

Although the battery is the prime source of power in a solar electric vehicle, solar energy acts as supplementary power for its functioning. The growing demand for emission-free transportation and stringent environmental regulations mandated by government authorities have fueled the growth of solar vehicles worldwide. High dependence on fossil fuels, depleting oil reserves, and global warming concerns have raised the importance of solar energy in the automotive industry.

The basic power transmission elements in solar vehicles are solar panels, battery, and motor. The PV panels convert solar energy into electrical energy, which is then fed to the battery. The battery further offers electrical energy to the DC motor (usually 12 V or 24 V), which in turn passes energy to the shaft connected to the rear wheel of the vehicle. Solar vehicle is the future of the automotive industry and is a cost-effective solution for the daily commute.

The solar vehicle market is projected to reach 8,955 units in 2022 and 107,380 units by 2030, at a CAGR of 36.4%. The major players in the solar vehicle market are Volkswagen (Germany), Toyota (Japan), Nissan (Japan), Mahindra (India), and Sono Motors (Germany). These companies are expected to develop highly efficient solar vehicles to cater to the increasing demand from consumers.
