This year, Vincentric said it performed a detailed cost of ownership analysis on more than 2,000 vehicle configurations based on ordinary use within a commercial fleet.
Each car was graded in all 10 provinces using 24 various lifecycle cost scenarios and eight different cost factors, according to Vincentric.
Vincentric’s list of cost factors includes:
- Fees & taxes
- Opportunity cost
To determine award winners, Vincentric identified which vehicles had the lowest fleet lifecycle cost in the most scenarios for its segment.
