"Market Intelligence for High-Geared Performance"
The global e-SUV market size was valued at USD 176.67 billion in 2022. The market is projected to grow from USD 208.50 billion in 2023 to USD 524.26 billion by 2030, exhibiting a CAGR of 14.1% during the forecast period.
e-SUV, an electric SUV, is an electric sports utility vehicle is 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.
Supply Chain Disruptions During COVID-19 Pandemic Hampered Market Growth
The extended closure of major economies during the pandemic had a diverse impact on the automotive industry, causing the closure of key automobile assembly plants globally. The manufacturing shutdown and the significant decrease in vehicle demand exposed vulnerabilities in global supply chains. It also led to a lack of R&D operations funding as the key players focus on survival more than R&D in the current scenario. The country's rapid limitation of the COVID-19 pandemic and its economic recovery have boosted the evolving and strong electric vehicle ecosystem. Several electric vehicle startups are launching new, locally designed electric car models.
COVID-19 accelerated the shift toward electric vehicles. Increased awareness of environmental concerns and cleaner transportation modes, increased government and consumers focus toward electric mobility. For instance, the Indian government launched the FAME II scheme. Various governments introduced policies and packages, such as subsidies and strict emission regulations, promoting EVs as a part of economic recovery plans. Due to increase in government incentive schemes, many renowned brands and electric vehicle startups are launching new models. The country's economic recovery have led to an evolving and strong electric vehicle ecosystem.
Increasing Driving Range of Vehicles is an Evolving Trend in the Market
Electric cars' driving range 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 increasing. Electric SUVs offer comparatively longer driving, alleviating range anxiety, and making them more practical for everyday use.
The automotive industry is accelerating its electrification strategy through research and development to extend the range, improve overall powertrain, and driving performance.

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.
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 traveling 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.
HEV Dominated the Market in 2022 due to Affordability of Hybrid Cars as Compared to BEV
Based on propulsion, the market is divided into BEV and HEV.
The Hybrid Electric Vehicle (HEV) segment dominated the market due to lower cost of acquisition as compared to Battery Electric Vehicles. HEV is an ideal segment between pure EV and IC engines having better performance than conventional vehicles making it suitable choice for most of the buyers located in regions with insufficient charging infrastructure. Some of the companies are selling HEV models in developing nations.
The BEV held the significant market share in 2022. The battery electric vehicles, called BEVs, are completely electric vehicles with rechargeable batteries and no conventional gasoline engine. All energy to propel the vehicle is received from the battery, which is recharged from the grid. More efficient driving performance and range are the factors anticipated for the segmental growth in the market.
Mid-Size Segment to Hold Largest Market Share as it is Cost-Effective
By size, the market is classified into Compact, Mid-Size, and Full-Size. The Mid-size is expected to dominate the global market during the forecast period. This segment offers the majority of required features, making it more affordable.
The compact segment dominated the market in 2022 and is expected to grow at a considerable CAGR during the forecast. Asia is a leading market in the automotive sector, and most of the market here is price-sensitive, making this segment ideal and dominant.
The Full-size segment is anticipated to be the fastest-growing segment in the market. Increasing consumer disposable income, especially in developed and developing economies, and features such as more seating capacity and boot space drive the demand for full-size segment vehicles with advanced features.
