Exxon Mobil Sees Half of Cars On Roads Will Be Hybrids by 2040
NEW YORK — One out of every two cars will be either hybrids or some other alternative-fuel vehicle by 2040, Exxon Mobil predicted Thursday.
Hybrids, which rely on both gas and electricity for power, currently account for less than 1 percent of all vehicles on the world's roads. They should move into the mainstream as governments boost fuel-efficiency requirements, Exxon said.
Power for those hybrids, along with other vehicles and a growing number of households around the world, will increasingly come from natural gas, nuclear power, and renewable energy sources like wind, Exxon said in its closely watched annual long-term energy outlook.
