New Research Report “Range Extenders for Electric Vehicles” Now Available at

LONDON – According to market expectations, approximately 8 million hybrid cars will be produced globally in 2021, each with a range extender, the additional power source that distinguishes them from usual electric cars. Moreover significant money today are spent on the same devices in buses, military vehicles, boats and large-scale new markets are emerging now.

Up-to-date range extenders usually consist of little more than off the shelf internal combustion engines, these are rapidly being replaced by second generation range extenders consisting of piston engines designed from scratch for fairly constant load in series hybrids.
