As buyers across the world begin slowly switching to emission-free or emission-reduced vehicles, a new website has surfaced offering prospective buyers a detailed look at how moving from a gas car could affect their day-to-day lives.

On Wednesday, one user shared a website they made that effectively compares various elements of an electric vehicle’s (EV’s) specs to another car, EV or not, called The EV Compare Tool (via Reddit).

The tool allows users to select two different cars, then to input their home and work locations, in order to determine how switching to an EV may affect their morning commute.

Along with showing the user’s commute changes, the tool lists a ton of different elements including road trips, and various simple specs like grams of CO2 per kWh charged compared to those using gas, as well as the difference in time spent fueling, and the overall amount of CO2 emissions – among other details still.

Currently, it appears the tool is under heavy load and it’s not showing the final summary results, but should soon we imagine. In any sense, the tool is really easy to use and shows how much in gas you can save with an electric vehicle compared to a gas car.

The news comes less than a week after MKBHD took two EVs and a gas car on a 1,000-mile road trip, showing the overall superiority of the Tesla Model S Plaid over the Ford Mustang Mach-E, while landing the Plaid just behind the Audi Q5 – a gas car.
