We have all the necessary tools, equipment and diagnostic capabilities for all electric vehicles to ensure professional and more importantly safe servicing practices. For the most part your EV (electric vehicle) a lot of the main driving components have not changed. There are however certain components and aspects of your vehicle that should only be worked on by suitably trained technicians.

Who Can Service Electric Cars or other High Voltage Vehicles

” The Dealership that sold me the car said they were the only people who can service my car?” Is this true?

This is something we hear often. No, this is absolutely not the case as a car owner you have the freedom to choose where your electric vehicle is repaired and serviced.

Are Electric Cars (EV) expensive to Service?

In general, no. From our experience, the high voltage system in modern vehicles is quite reliable!

DPF, EGR, clutch, timing belt, head gasket and other expensive-sounding repairs no longer exist in fully electric vehicles.

There are 100s of moving parts in an internal combustion engine which is now replaced with just ONE!

While you will still have suspension, brake and tyre costs but these will be no more expensive than they ever were.

How Often Do Electric Cars Need To Be Serviced?

Servicing is recommended annually and while there may be fewer fluids to take care of one of the major differences are battery maintenance, diagnostic and state of health. Preventative maintenance is crucial and catching issues early can save you money in the long run.

In general, we find the whole drivetrain of your EV is subjected to less stress than those driven by a combustion engine. Regenerative braking systems in EVs will decrease the pressure put on braking systems while also charging your high voltage battery, this will increase the lifespan of those items over similar conventional powered vehicles.

Air Conditioning in Electric Vehicles

The AC in Electric Cars can be slightly different to the AC in vehicles with internal combustion engines.

The AC pump is electric and is powered by a battery rather than by an engine. It forms part of the high voltage system in an electric vehicle, so any repairs need to be carried out by a trained technician.
