global fleet by type chart


Global fleet increases and diversifies

  • Driven by increases in personal income and population, the global fleet of cars, SUVs and pickups grows about 80 percent to approximately 1.8 billion vehicles
  • Conventional cars (primarily gasoline-powered) will remain the most popular due to their cost, functionality and increasing fuel efficiency 
  • Full hybrid vehicles reach approximately 15 percent of the fleet, though many hybrid features, such as start-stop engines, penetrate into conventional vehicles
  • Electric vehicles penetrate the small to mid-size car segment across the world, and in certain places grow faster with policy support
