e-SUV, an electric SUV, is an electric sports utility vehicle powered by electricity rather than a traditional internal combustion fuel engine. Some of these vehicles are also partially electric-powered, known as hybrid SUVs. Some vehicles are equipped with all-wheel drive (AWD) or four-wheel drive (4WD) systems to operate on rough terrain surfaces and public roads to adapt to any difficult terrain. Electric SUVs are popular among all-electric vehicles, offering zero-emission, quiet operation, and potentially lower running costs than ICE vehicles. These vehicles use batteries and motors instead of conventional IC engines.

The rising adoption of fuel-efficient mobility solutions is anticipated to drive the e-SUV market share.

The COVID-19 pandemic led to disruptions in the supply chain, impacting the automotive industry globally. The closure of key assembly plants and reduced vehicle demand exposed vulnerabilities in supply chains. Funding for R&D operations was limited as companies focused on survival. However, the pandemic accelerated the shift toward EVs, driven by increased environmental awareness and government initiatives such as India's FAME II scheme. Furthermore, economic recovery has fostered a growing electric vehicle ecosystem, with many brands and startups launching new models.

e-SUV Market Trends

Increasing Driving Range of Vehicles is an Evolving Trend in the Market

The driving range of electric cars is considered the top priority factor for consumers when purchasing an electric vehicle. Many additional methods, such as speed optimization and regenerative braking & accelerating, are also implemented to improve driving range. For example, in January 2023, Tata Motors claimed to increase the driving range for the Tata Nexon EV Max from 437km to 453km. This update was implemented via a software upgrade across all its Nexon models.

In countries including China and India, the focus on decreasing vehicle emissions and increasing government support is rising. Electric SUVs offer comparatively longer driving, alleviating range anxiety and making them more practical for everyday use.

  • For instance, in September 2023, Mercedes-Benz announced the launch of its newest electric vehicle architecture, focusing on improving its electric vehicles (EVs) driving range.

e-SUV Market Growth Factors

Declining Cost of Electric Vehicle Battery to Drive Market Growth

e-SUVs have been popular globally due to their spaciousness and versatility. The availability of e-SUVs meets consumer demand for larger electric vehicles suitable for larger passenger capacity. An essential driver for EV adoption is battery cost reduction, thereby reducing the total cost of operation and the final cost of the vehicle. Consistent decline in the cost of lithium-ion batteries positively influences market growth.

The battery is the most crucial and expensive component for any electric vehicle. Advances in technology, improved manufacturing processes, and efficiency gains have all meant that the price of the battery continued to fall, reducing the cost of an electric vehicle. Though the battery’s share of an EV’s overall cost continues to reduce, any decrease or increase in battery prices has a direct bearing on the price of an EV.

According to the Department of Energy’s (DOE) Vehicle Technologies report, the cost of an electric vehicle lithium-ion battery pack declined by 85% in the last decade to USD 153/kWh in 2022 due to scale in operations, changes in cell chemistries, and many other parameters. This correlation decreased the EV prices, followed by the decreasing battery costs. Most of the manufacturers are developing new battery types.

  • For instance, in June 2023, Researchers at the University of Texas announced a lithium-sulfur battery that can store four times more energy than a traditional lithium-ion battery of the same capacity.


High Manufacturing Costs and a Lack of Charging Infrastructure Might Obstruct Market Growth

Electric vehicles are superior to conventional vehicles but tend to have higher upfront purchase costs than gasoline-powered vehicles. Although the cost differential is narrowing, these vehicles still have not achieved economies of scale, which still deters some buyers.

In addition, a lack of widespread and easily accessible charging infrastructure can be a significant barrier to e-SUV adoption. Driving range anxiety due to the lack of charging stations remains a concern for potential buyers. People travelling long distances worry about getting stranded as fewer charging stations are available. Correspondingly, manufacturing electric vehicles requires a lot of assets and investment, which has also affected market growth.
