Oak Ridge National Laboratory, supported by the U.S. Department of Energy’s Vehicle Technologies Office, recently released the 2014 Vehicle Technologies Market Report. The Market Report details the past year’s major trends in light-, medium-, and heavy-duty car and truck markets as well as patterns in the underlying economic and transportation systems.  The report specifically focuses on developments in high-efficiency and alternative-fuel vehicle technologies over the course of 2014.

The report covers five major areas: energy and economics, light vehicles, heavy trucks, vehicle technologies, and policy.  Each section has a series of single page overviews of various trends, such as national light-duty vehicle markets, vehicle manufacturing, supply changes, truck sales, and federal policies.  Each overview includes a brief descriptive paragraph with a supporting graph or table of data. 

The full report is available as a PDF and the data is also available in downloadable XLS spreadsheet format on Oak Ridge National Laboratory's Vehicle Technologies Market Report website.  

In addition to the Market Report, Oak Ridge National Laboratory also publishes the Transportation Energy Data Book, which is a compendium of transportation data that focuses on energy.
