What kind of repairs do electric cars need?
Electric vehicles require less maintenance than petrol or diesel cars and are more reliable, so they won’t need as many repairs. That can help to keep the costs of running an electric car down.
But there are still parts which can go wrong. Most of the electric car breakdowns we see are caused by punctures or issues with the 12v battery.
With an electric car, you might also need to maintain or replace the cabin air filter (also known as a pollen filter), brake fluid or air conditioning.
An electric car needs to be serviced as often as any car. The service will include:
Tyre wear and tear & tyre pressure check
Windscreen wiper replacement
Brake fluid change
MOT but with no emissions test and with fewer parts to test, repairs could be minimal
Electric Car Battery Maintenance
Contrary to common belief, car batteries use different technology then mobiles or laptops. That, together with the EVs' battery management systems, ensures the batteries have a long life.
