EAC Approach You are trying to pick the least-expensive car for your new delivery service.
You have two choices: the Scion xA, which will cost $14,000 to purchase and which will have
OCF of 2 $1,200 annually throughout the vehicle’s expected life of three years as a delivery
vehicle; and the Toyota Prius, which will cost $20,000 to purchase and which will have OCF
of 2 $650 annually throughout that vehicle’s expected 4-year life. Both cars will be worthless

business has a cost of capital of 12 percent, which one should you choose?
