Vice 2.0: Vehicle and Infrastructure Cash-Flow Evaluation Model

Version 2.0 Enhancements
Enhancements to version 2.0 include the ability to select the project type (vehicles and infrastructure or vehicles only), as well as decouple vehicle acquisition from the infrastructure investment, so the two may be made independently. Additionally, outputs now include a graphical presentation of investment cash flow, payback period (simple and discounted), petroleum displacement (annual and cumulative), and annual greenhouse gas savings. Also, the vehicle fleet is now built around several common conventionally-fueled fleet vehicles, both gasoline and diesel.
