Dashboard for Rapid Vehicle Electrification, or DRVE, is a powerful tool that equips users with decision-relevant information on the financial viability and environmental impact of light-, medium-, and heavy-duty vehicle fleet procurements across an entire fleet. The Microsoft Excel-based tool can evaluate a variety of procurement ownership structures, vehicle types, electric vehicle charging configurations, and many more scenarios.

In a nutshell, the tool allows users to import all fleet vehicles and compare a fleet’s conventional vehicles with an electric vehicle alternative. The analysis compares vehicles on a total cost of ownership basis along with well-to-wheels emissions based on regional electrical grid characteristics.

Please send an email to drve@atlaspolicy.com with your thoughts, your suggestions, or any issues that you find. 

This tool was created with funding from the Electrification Coalition.
