MAN Bus – Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) Optimizer
Reduce Your Bus Operating Costs with MAN
The price of a new bus is often the most important factor when it comes to buying a new bus. But in order to run a business efficiently and economically it’s not enough to know just the investment costs. You need to know the operating costs of the bus, the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO), too. TCO is a method of cost calculation that takes into account all expenses incurred during your ownership of a bus. TCO begins with the date of purchase and ends when you sell or scrap your bus and purchase a new vehicle. It’s only by knowing the TCO for your bus and your expenses per kilometer that you can reduce the bus operating costs.
The TCO-Optimizer from MAN helps you calculate your operating costs for every bus easily, quickly and reliably. The online calculator of Total Cost of Ownership covers all relevant factors. Here you can learn how to reduce your costs and take advantage of potential savings.
How the TCO of a bus is calculated?
Before calculating TCO you have a choice to make: do you plan to buy a bus or do you want to lease a vehicle? With the MAN TCO-Optimizer you can judge both scenarios. In order to produce a definite result about the operating costs per bus, the computer takes different factors into account such as the purchase price, the expected useful running life of the bus, fuel consumption, administration and staff costs. The result is the Total Cost of Ownership of your bus. Additionally the TCO Optimizer shows the cost per kilometer as percentages distributed across various fields. The more information you enter and the more details the computer can assess, the more accurate the calculation.
