A story on the website hybridcars.com predicts that hybrid vehicles will account for 7.1% of vehicles sold by 2020, while pure EVs will amount to just 2%.
The story, which quotes a study from Tokyo-based Macquarie Securities, says that alternative vehicles will account for 12.0% of total drivetrains. “Our assumption that sales of hybrid electric vehicles will outpace those of pure EVs is more favorable for Toyota and Honda than Nissnan,” noted Clive Wiggins, an analyst for Macquarie.
Toyota has said it will market a plug-in version of its enormously popular Prius in 2012, while Nissan has announced that its battery-powered Leaf EV will debut in 2010.
A quick look into the merger of two powerhouse 3D printing OEMs and the new leader in rapid prototyping solutions, Stratasys. The industrial revolution is now led by 3D printing and engineers are given the opportunity to fully maximize their design capabilities, reduce their time-to-market and functionally test prototypes cheaper, faster and easier. Bruce Bradshaw, Director of Marketing in North America, will explore the large product offering and variety of materials that will help CAD designers articulate their product design with actual, physical prototypes. This broadcast will dive deep into technical information including application specific stories from real world customers and their experiences with 3D printing. 3D Printing is
