Electric Vehicle Decision Support Model
The Electric Vehicle Decision Support Model (EV-DSM) is a web-based tool for calculating the total cost of ownership of battery electric vehicles compared to conventional vehicles (diesel or gasoline powered). The tool differentiates between vehicles of different car and truck classes as well as different ownership types. The calculation takes into account the national tax and price systems and the individual driving profile of the user. Currently, the TCO calculation is possible for vehicles in Germany and will be extended to the Netherlands, Denmark, Hungary and Sweden.
