Revolutionary new Dynamon ZERO feature calculates andcompares TCO for electric and ICE vehicles

Fleets can now calculate and compare the total cost of ownership for petrol, diesel and electric vehicles using Dynamon’s revolutionary new Financial Planner feature.

A major new update to its award-winning ZERO software, Financial Planner automatically
pulls together the key pieces of data needed to calculate Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) and
generates results that compare owning and operating an electric vehicle (EV) fleet to that of
an internal combustion petrol or diesel engine (ICE) fleet.

Additionally, the tool offers insights into which ICE vehicles should be prioritised for a switch
to electric, and which ones can be transitioned at a later stage.

“Our new Financial Planner feature gives fleets a tool they have been craving for some time:
a definitive way to determine the costs of electric vehicles compared to internal combustion
ones,” said Dynamon CEO Angus Webb.

Core to the offering is a ‘rate card’ which uses a wealth of data from the fleet, including
purchase price or leasing costs, vehicle age, mileage, residual value, charging tariffs,
insurance, SMR and taxation. For ICE vehicles, it can also factor in emission zone fees, fuel
price and fuel efficiency, while for EVs it adds in EV tariffs for public, workplace and
domestic charging.

The software then generates an in-depth financial report on the fleet, suggesting which
vehicles can switch to EV now, and which ones can be transitioned at a later stage.
There are so many factors involved when considering switching an ICE vehicle to an EV, with
cost being one of the most important. For fleets, trying to compare multiple different costs,
and the impact on TCO, is incredibly complex.

Dynamon’s Financial Planner does the heavy lifting, creating a clear cost pathway for fleets
to help roll out their EV strategy based on informed data in every single facet of the

Combined with other features in the ZERO package, businesses are able to visualise exactly
what their operation could look like now and in the future as they transition to electric. Not

only can they now accurately forecast and compare vehicle costs, but also model which EVs
would be most suitable, predict how routes and jobs may need to change, and understand
the charging infrastructure needed.

Further innovations in the software include forecasting future fleet expenditure based on
varying operational vehicle lifecycle scenarios, and also charting the capital expenditure
required to switch to EVs.

It can also identify subsets of vehicles within the fleet which are ripe for electric transition,
as well as report and predict fleet greenhouse gas emission reductions based on the
replacement plan for switching petrol and diesel to electric.

Choosing the right commercial EV for the right job is fundamental to their success, and
Financial Planner is a key element of ZERO that makes this process far simpler and clearer.
Fleets can use this major innovation to make informed choices with confidence about future
costs – and that will be genuinely transformational for many businesses.
