While gas and hybrid vehicles have internal combustion engines and a hybrid also has a small battery for additional range. Their maintenance schedule requires regular oil changes, engine inspections, brake inspections, and tire rotations. While on the other hand fully battery-powered vehicles don’t require oil and have fewer moving parts which in return means less can go wrong.
Why do EVs require less maintenance? There are a few reasons. An EV’s battery motor is very different from a typical engine and since it is fully electric and regularly recharged, the motor and associated electrical components require little to no regular maintenance. Enjoy stress-free driving with fewer fluids to check and maintain, brakes that last longer due to regenerative braking, and many more benefits that include:
Electric Vehicles have fewer mechanical components than traditional gas and hybrid models, this means there is a lot less that can go wrong.
Electric Vehicles often utilize regenerative braking technology. Regenerative braking returns electricity to the motor when your vehicle slows down, resulting in less wear and more efficient braking.
The batteries used to power electric vehicles are designed to last the lifetime of the vehicle. Electric vehicle batteries also come backed by a comprehensive warranty!
What little maintenance your EV does need, they are relatively inexpensive and can sometimes be as simple as refilling your wiper fluid! And when it comes to tires, we offer a complimentary inspection and competitive prices on all your service and tire needs.
