“With 17 different award-winning brands in our 2017 analysis, it’s clear that Canadian fleet operators have a variety of great vehicles to choose from,” said Vincentric President, David Wurster. “Ultimately it’s important to identify which vehicles offer the lowest total cost of ownership to ensure optimal fleet use.”
To determine the 2017 Vincentric Best Fleet Value in Canada™ award winners, Vincentric performed a detailed cost of ownership analysis on over 2,000 vehicle configurations based on typical use in a commercial fleet. Each vehicle was evaluated in all 10 provinces using 24 different lifecycle cost scenarios and eight different cost factors: depreciation, fees & taxes, financing, fuel, insurance, maintenance, opportunity cost and repairs. Winners were identified by determining which vehicles had the lowest fleet lifecycle cost in the most scenarios for its segment.
