Though electric vehicles are markedly different from gas vehicles, there are many required maintenance services that are similar. The biggest difference is that because electric vehicles run on batteries and/or electric motors, they don’t need oil changes. Additionally, you wouldn’t need to worry about transmission fluid, spark plugs, accessory belts, and more.
Some common electric vehicle services that’ll be needed somewhat often include:
The easiest way to stay on top of your electric vehicle’s maintenance is to check with its maintenance schedule. When you bring your vehicle to our service center, our technicians will review this schedule and perform necessary services according to that. They’ll also let you know if upcoming service will be needed in the near future.
Before you make an electric vehicle your next automotive companion, you may want to know if it’s more costly to fix than a gas vehicle. Usually, electric vehicles are cheaper to maintain because there aren’t as many parts associated with them. However, this will be dependent on how often and far you drive.
When it comes to your electric vehicle, you’ll want to pay close attention to the battery. This is similar to the transmission/engine in a gas vehicle in that without it, your vehicle will be inoperable.
Many manufacturers offer significant warranties on their vehicles’ batteries, though, so if your battery ever fails, the warranty may cover the cost of replacing it completely.
In general, you can expect to usually spend less money on fixing and maintaining an electric vehicle.
