The team has owned their current 3 Wheel Toyo vehicle for four years and it has reached the end of its economic life. A four-year total cost of ownership analysis shows that selling the current vehicle while it still has salvage value and putting those funds towards the purchase of a new vehicle is the lowest total cost of ownership course of action.
Current Vehicle Salvage Value: 1,000,000 TZS (US $571)
Purchase Price of New Vehicle: 3,500,000 TZS (US $2,000)
Net Expense of New Purchase: 2,500,000 TZS (US $1,428)
