Electric vehicle sales have fallen short of industry aspirations, to date, but many sectors of smart transportation will grow by 50 percent or more in 2012. Featuring Smart Transportation research director John Gartner along with senior analysts Dave Hurst and Lisa Jerram, this webinar explores how rising gas prices and more stringent emissions reductions goals are increasing interest in alternative drive technologies. These markets include not only plug-in electric vehicles, but also alternative fuel medium and heavy duty trucks, electric bikes and scooters, alternative fueled fleets, and diesel vehicles, as well as hybrid and stop-start light duty vehicles.
Pike Research identifies the top Smart Transportation markets poised for growth and providing the greatest opportunities for both manufacturers and consumers. These opportunities vary greatly by region, and the webinar discusses the differences in demand for alternative drives in North America, Europe, and Asia Pacific.
