Electric vehicles make getting maintenance done so much easier. With few moving parts than internal combustion engines, EVs have less going on. That means that EVS often require far less maintenance than both hybrid and gas-powered vehicles, making them cheaper to operate. Still, some electric vehicle maintenance is needed, just like any other car. Check out our guide to maintenance on electric vehicles below, and schedule your electric vehicle service appointment now at Rosen Auto Group today!
Electric Means Low Maintenance Costs and Time
In addition to the savings from eliminating the need for gas, there are major savings on electric vehicle maintenance costs. As an electric vehicle, it doesn’t require oil to lubricate the engine, eliminating the need for oil changes. Just that alone means huge savings over time. Add in the fact that the same is true of other expensive engine work and brakes won’t wear as easily, and this can add up to $6,000 to $10,000 in maintenance savings over the life of the EV. You’ll save much more than just money with an electric vehicle. You’ll also save time from the elimination of engine maintenance and repairs, as well as time at the gas pump.
Maintenance Needed for EVs
Just like any other vehicle, EVs need basic car maintenance like rotating the tires, replacing various fluids, and changing out cabin air filters. There are also several EV-specific services that drivers of these battery-electric vehicles need to schedule. Here’s an electric vehicle maintenance schedule:
- Every month: inspect interior and exterior lights; inspect tires for wear and pressure; check for loose wheel lugs; inspect windshield washer fluid level; check coolant level
- Every six months: check 12-volt battery connections and clean if necessary; check drain holes for obstructions; check cooling system fluid levels; check parking brake; inspect safety warning lights; clean the undercarriage to remove corrosive materials.
- Every 12 months: rotate tires; replace climate control filter; multi-point inspection
- Every 3 years: change brake fluid and coolant
- Every 15,000 miles: replace windshield wiper blades
- Every 20,000 miles: change cabin air filter
