Developing a Vehicle Cost Calculator to Promote Electric Vehicle Adoption among TNC Drivers

  • Principal Investigator Angela Sanguinetti, Ph.D.
  • University of California, Davis
This research will develop a total cost of ownership (TCO) model and online vehicle cost calculator (VCC) for transport network company (TNC) drivers. Many VCCs have been developed to support consumers in calculating the relative costs of electric and gas vehicles, but their design and the TCO models that underlie them are geared toward traditional vehicle ownership.
