Servicing an Electric Car

Posted on June 4, 2022 at 11:48 am

Electric cars are no different to conventional cars in that they need to be serviced. The service needs of electric vehicles will be much the same as traditional cars; however, there are some differences you should be aware of.

Unlike conventional cars, an electric vehicle does not have an exhaust, so the car doesn’t need to be taken to a garage for a periodic smoke test. However, all cars need servicing from time to time, which is the case with electric cars.

The main difference between servicing an electric vehicle and servicing a conventional car is that there is no engine oil or coolant to change. Because there are no oil filters or spark plugs, these items do not need changing either. Another difference is that belts and hoses do not wear out as they would on a conventional vehicle because there are no moving parts in an electric car. However, all vehicles will still require regular inspection of the brakes and suspension and any defects noted and rectified.
