Large SUVs Market Dynamics

Driver

Rising consumer demand

Automobile manufacturers have successfully marketed SUVs by emphasizing the lifestyle and status associated with owning one. The large SUVs market is diversified to cater to various segments, including luxury, mid-range, and compact options. Changes in regulations and emissions standards may encourage the development and adoption of electric or hybrid SUVs, supporting the overall growth of the large SUVs market. Additionally, demand for SUVs is rising in emerging nations, driven by the desire for larger vehicles with more advanced features.

  • In December 2023, Jaecoo, a brand from the Chinese automotive group Chery, officially confirmed it will launch in the UK.

Along with the UK, the Jaecoo brand has already confirmed it has entered the South African, Russian, and Filipino large SUVs market and will likely launch in others outside of China. 

Restraint

Fluctuating fuel prices

Achieving this balance requires significant investment in research and development to produce lightweight materials, aerodynamic designs, and efficient powertrains. One of the main challenges for manufacturers in the large SUVs market is finding the right balance between fuel efficiency and performance. This is especially important because consumers are placing more emphasis on environmental concerns and fuel economy. In addition, fluctuating fuel prices and government regulations on emissions and fuel efficiency standards make it difficult to meet consumer expectations while also complying with regulations.

Opportunity

Rapid development of electric and hybrid SUVs 

The rapid growth of electric and hybrid SUVs is a key trend in the large SUVs market, reflecting a shift towards more sustainable transportation. These vehicles offer emission-free driving by reducing greenhouse gas emissions, while hybrid models combine internal combustion engines with electric power, enhancing fuel efficiency and minimizing the environmental impact. This trend is fueled by growing consumer awareness of environmental issues, along with government incentives and advancements in electric vehicle infrastructure.

  • In December 2023, the French carmaker company Renault said its  Brazilian unit will going to invest 350 million euros ($379.12 million) to produce a new hybrid engine C-SUV car for distribution in Latin America.

Fuel Type Insights

The global large SUVs market in 2023 was dominated by the petrol segment. In recent years, many manufacturers have stopped producing diesel vehicles due to their higher pollution levels. This shift has led to an increased preference for petrol vehicles among consumers. Petrol SUVs are popular due to their better fuel efficiency, easier maintenance, and widespread availability. On the other hand, electric vehicles are not as widely available and tend to be more expensive.

The electric segment is expected to grow at a faster rate in the large SUVs market over the forecast period. Electric vehicles (EVs) are powered by electricity rather than a gasoline-fueled internal combustion engine. As such, they are seen as potential replacements for current-generation vehicles to address issues like rising pollution, global warming, and dwindling natural resources. The primary driver of the electric segment in the large SUVs market revenue is the increasing fuel prices. Additionally, key trends in the global electric large SUVs market include the growing demand for high-performance vehicles that are fuel-efficient and low-emission and the rising preference for SUVs and MUVs, which can propel segment growth further.

  • In May 2024, Genesis announced that its new electric SUV is set for production late next year, and it’s poised to take on the Cadillac Escalade and Range Rover. Genesis expects its first full-size electric SUV to have a big impact on the brand as it looks to outpace luxury rivals.
