This project aims to accelerate the development of advanced vehicles and support the deployment of market-ready technologies.

Fleet DNA helps vehicle manufacturers and fleet managers understand the broad operational range for many of today's commercial vehicles. This tool offers access to vehicle fleet data summaries and visualizations similar to real-world "genetics" for medium- and heavy-duty commercial fleet vehicles operating within a variety of vocations.

Click on the vehicle type to access composite data, summaries, and visualizations. Use these tools to analyze and sort transportation data: FASTSim and DRIVE. Find more resources on the Alternative Fuels Data Center.
