Total Cost of Ownership Tool
The Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) Tool was developed by Fleet Challenge www.fleetchallenge.com and CALSTART, Pasadena, CA, USA www.calstart.com with support from Natural Resources Canada (NRCan) and with software development by Vancouver-based, ExWare Solutions Inc.
The TCO tool was designed to provide fleet managers with customized information to help inform their truck and fuel-type decision-making. The TCO tool makes comprehensive side-by-side comparisons of up to three truck types. It compares the lifecycle costs of internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicles; alternate-fueled and electric vehicles (EVs).
Key Features of the TCO tool:
- The TCO Tool allows users to compare an endless number of economic scenarios.
- The Tool draws on proprietary databases assembled by Fleet Challenge and CALSTART, specific to operating vehicles across the different regions of Canada.
- GHG emissions can be compared with varying vehicle costs to provide a CO2 reduction per dollar spent.
- The Tool provides an estimation of the comparative lifecycle costs of utilizing different fuels for operations across different vocations, locations, and duty cycle
- Metric pre-release to the public available upon request (see link above)
Electric Vehicle Cost/Benefit Tool
Note: This tool is only available in the metric system version at this time.
Use this easy-to-use but powerful analysis tool to compare the operating costs of electric vehicles (EVs) to comparable internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicles. It compares the operating costs of light-duty, medium-and heavy-duty trucks up to class 8 in several fleet types including utilities, municipalities, and other on-road fleets.
The tool allows fleet-wide analysis and summaries of several vehicle types and it includes calculations for charging infrastructure. The tool uses default datapoints – fleet averages from our database for fuel-used and distance-traveled, repair and maintenance costs by fleet type and category, or users can overwrite our default data with their own.
