Hybrid Calculator

Use the Hybrid Calculator to compare hybrid electric (HEV) and conventional vehicles. The calculator includes purchase price, fuel costs, repair and maintenance costs, resale value, and applicable tax incentives, and calculates expected lifetime costs for both vehicles, as well as cost and emissions savings from the HEV.

Outputs are provided per vehicle, per year, and per mile.

See the Methodology statement for more details.

Disclaimer: This calculator was developed for fleets, but can also be used by the general public for individual estimates. If you are not a fleet user, please understand that the purchase costs, resale values, maintenance costs, and discounting factors may not be transferable to individual purchasing experiences. Fleets tend to receive special fleet pricing and may have lower maintenance costs than privately owned vehicles. The default values provided in the tool are estimates and can be overridden by the user.
