The EV Explorer is a tool designed for drivers to assess what vehicle will best suit their lifestyle. Users can input any car that is in the fueleconomy.gov database to see annual fuel costs based on their daily commute or other travel. The tool can compare four cars at a time, on metrics such as miles per gallon, range, and time to charge. Internal Combustion Engine vehicles can be compared to Hybrids, Plug-in Hybrids, and Plug-in Electric Vehicles. The EV Explorer uses average statewide gas prices and electricity prices when calculating costs, but it is possible to specify these parameters as well. Users can manipulate conditions for electric vehicles (such as charging at home or at work, as well as the efficiency of the charger) to best simulate a real-world experience.
