Electric vehicles (EVs) are becoming more and more popular, especially among millennials and gen-Z. Since electric vehicles don’t have a combustion engine, their batteries are in essence the powerhouse and heart of the car. To understand the type of maintenance EVs need, we will discuss how electric cars work.
We all know that Electric cars are the most eco-friendly option when it comes to transportation. This is because electric cars don’t burn fuel, which reduces the carbon footprint to virtually zero. Instead, electric vehicles store energy in a strong lithium-ion battery. The power runs the electric engine. EVs also have a single-speed transmission to send power from the electric motor to the wheels. Fortunately, these parts can go above and beyond the 100,000-mile mark before needing any repairs or replacement.
Electric vehicles don’t have as many fluids as the normal gas-powered car. They don’t use motor oil or rely on transmission fluid. Arguably, they require less maintenance than hybrids. On the other hand, they still require tire rotations, brake service, cooling system checks, and other similar maintenance to their counterparts.
