Multi-Client Study to Produce Insights on

20-Year Forecast of Battery & Fuel Cell Electric Vehicle Sales and Production

Knibb, Gormezano & Partners (KGP) and ACT Research are teaming to shed light on the future of commercial vehicles around the world. What can we expect from commercial electric vehicle production? How are global regions differing in their infrastructure development for battery or fuel cells? How do incentives and regulations change per region? These are the questions to be addressed in this study as we look at the future of electric vehicles.

What They're Saying

I would recommend ACT as your number 1 'go to' source for industry forecasts... Mike Zimm, BMO
“KGP are thought leaders in the commercial vehicle and non-road mobile machinery space, and we find their forward-looking xEV projections to be invaluable as we put together our medium- and long-term plans in these areas. The electrification of these sectors will accelerate going forward and, to make sure we are making the best decisions, we need the kind of analysis and insight that KGP provide in their commentaries around the projected numbers and penetration levels of new powertrain technologies.” Director, Material Supplier
“The information [provided] is very helpful; it helps us connect the dots in our business. We’re concerned about what’s going to happen in the marketplace, is freight going up or down…we need to know how our customers are going to be impacted. We really need this information.” Kirk Mann, Hitachi Capital
“KGP’s xEV study provided us with a complete overview of the total landscape and solutions for commercial vehicle powertrains, taking into account the enablers and roadblocks of the various solutions. A great basis to verify other pieces of the puzzle and generate our own, customized views.” Director, Electronic Component Supplier
“I would recommend ACT Research to anyone that’s looking for in-depth insight into what’s happening in the commercial vehicle markets. The expertise and knowledge that goes into the service they provide, there’s not a better solution, in my opinion, for commercial vehicle data than ACT Research.” Jeff Trent, Mahle
“The team at KGP got to know our business in detail so they could tailor their industry data and make it much more relevant to our needs.
