Research and Markets has announced the addition of WinterGreen Research, Inc.'s new report "Worldwide Nanotechnology Electric Vehicle (EV) Market Shares, Strategies, and Forecasts, 2009 to 2015" to their offering.
Breakthrough technology in electric vehicles brings advancements that provide customers with personal transportation choices never before available.
Electric vehicles are real. They come in a variety of styles and capabilities. The BMW features driving control and style. The Chinese BYD hybrid backed by Warren Buffet's company has features that enable plug-in hybrid power train flexibility. It has a full battery-powered electric mode. The series-hybrid mode has an engine which drives a generator to recharge the batteries, acting as a rangeextender. There is a parallel hybrid mode, in which the engine and motor both provide propulsive power.
Electric vehicles represent a quantum shift in transportation. The design trajectories are varied; the opportunities are significant as a quantum shift occurs in what the vehicle basic functions are and how the vehicle works. The car companies that leverage the market opportunity to shift to a new paradigm are likely to succeed. There are others who merely try to migrate existing styles and designs to electric vehicles. Buggy whips come to mind.
