To determine the winners, Vincentric performed a detailed cost of ownership analysis on over 2,400 vehicle configurations based on typical use in a commercial fleet, Vincentric said in a release.

Winners were identified by determining which vehicles had the lowest fleet lifecycle cost in the most scenarios for its segment.
