Electric Vehicle Savings Calculator

This calculator estimates the cost saving and greenhouse gas (GHG) emission reduction potential of purchasing a plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV) and/or an electric vehicle (EV) in place of a traditional internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicle within the Province of Alberta.

This savings calculator is purely a guide and not a guarantee of actual savings. Savings will vary with the use of each vehicle. The Municipal Climate Change Action Centre (MCCAC) and Alberta Municipalities have no claims towards the accuracy of the results of this tool. Actual GHG emission and fuel cost savings will vary depending on factors such as road and weather conditions, driving behaviours, use of regenerative braking, charging multiple times per day, vehicle maintenance, battery age, and GHG intensity of the electricity grid.

This calculator was produced as part of the Zero-Emission Vehicle Awareness Initiative and partially funded by the Government of Canada and the Government of Alberta.
