Hybrid Commercial Vehicles Report

Description:    This report looks at the different types of commercial vehicle hybrids currently available on the
                market. It provides detailed coverage of the market drivers along with in-depth analysis of the
                latest technology. It also examines Flywheel based hybrids, Electric hybrids and advanced battery
                technology. Furthermore it details the latest OEM Technologies and Strategies by manufacturer.

                Background to this Research

                Around the world, a number of issues are combining to bring about a growth in demand from
                vehicle operators. Rising fuel costs mean that it is increasingly important to optimise truck
                drivelines, while at the same time meeting today's emission standards and those of tomorrow
                becomes more difficult.

                The next few years will see increased cost and complexity within mainline commercial vehicle
                powertrain as manufacturers introduce technologies to comply with more stringent emissions
