These tools can help consumers determine the estimate costs of fueling, ownership, and overall cost analysis to help you find the best EV for your budget
These tools allow you to see the impacts of your vehicle and driving choices to help you understand and assess emissions and impacts of transitioning.
Alternative Fueling Resources
The ATRAVEL Tool was developed to estimate costs, travel time, and emissions of private vehicle ownership and other travel modes based on your location and travel patterns.
Private vehicle ownership provides us with significant benefits, allowing us to get to the places we want to go. However, vehicle ownership is typically a household’s second-largest expenditure, while annually the average driver spends more than 300 hours in their vehicle and of that time about 100 hours in congestion and 17 hours looking for parking. In addition, automobiles are a significant contributor to air pollution and greenhouse gas emissions.
Vehicle and Ownership Cost Tools
Alternative Fuel and Advanced Vehicle Search
Find and compare alternative fuel vehicles, engines, and hybrid/conversion systems. Some of the light-duty vehicles may count toward vehicle-acquisition requirements for federal fleets or state and alternative fuel provider fleets regulated by the Energy Policy Act.
FuelEconomy.gov has developed a new tool through the FuelEconomy.gov’s Tax Center to help consumers shop for clean vehicles eligible for these tax credits and help car buyers navigate the requirements. The website provides a simple calculator to help buyers determine the credit for pre-owned vehicles, provides information on claiming each of the credits, and answers frequently asked consumer questions.
Resources for Community Planning
GREENHOUSE GAS EQUIVALENCIES CALCULATOR
The Greenhouse Gas Equivalencies Calculator translates abstract energy and emissions data into concrete terms you can understand, such as annual emission from cars, households, or power plants. Interested users can embed this widget on their own webpages. After entering data into the Calculator widget, users will be routed back to our EPA site to view the equivalencies generated.
Zero-Emission Technology Inventory
An interactive online resource to establish a current and shared knowledge base for worldwide commercially available offerings of zero-emission medium- and heavy-duty vehicles (MHDVs)
