This report gives numbers and value for hybrid and for pure electric buses and taxis, market drivers and overall transport statistics to put this in context. The most active countries are identified and projections specifically for China are given. Large numbers of suppliers are identifies and some interesting ones are profiled. Drive trains and batteries are examined.

This is the world's first report forecasting the global market for electric buses and taxis both hybrid and pure electric
