Features & Benefits

Car Cost Expert provides a detailed assessment of all the costs needed to get to grips with and improve TCO. Thoroughly interrogate the data and benchmark models:

  • against 300 mileage/age combinations;

  • prioritise changes to model design and commercial strategy based on expected TCO uplift;
  • enhance their sales story, demonstrating lower lifetime costs even where initial acquisition costs are higher;
  • calculate model-specific discounts needed to ensure that a model has the best TCO of its competitor set in each market and boost sales;
