How people drive in Europe, the Americas, and Asia: Every fifth new vehicle in Japan is a hybrid, spark-ignition engines predominate in China, diesel holds sway in Europe and India.

Thanks to Bosch, we can present this nifty map of automotive powertrain market share in various countries around the globe.

According to Bosch:

“In Japan, nearly every fifth new car now features a hybrid powertrain. This makes the country the undisputed pioneer of electrification. In just a few years, registrations of hybrids will be significantly higher outside Japan as well.”

This is how Bosch sees the future in regards to automotive electrification:

“Bosch forecasts that of a predicted 113 million total vehicles sold worldwide in 2020, 6.5 million will be strong hybrids, 3 million will be plug-in hybrids, and 2.5 million will be all-electric (assuming a total of 113 million vehicles sold in 2020).”
