Electric Vehicle Servicing Electric Vehicle Servicing Paisley Autocare What maintenance needs to be carried out for an electric/hybrid vehicle?Your new electric car is like a regular vehicle when it comes to the basics of maintenance. You will need to check and adjust your tire pressures, make sure all exterior lights are working properly (exterior sensors), as well as ensure fluids levels such as brake fluid level; screen wash & coolant levels are correct for optimal performance! Like petrol/diesel-powered vehicles key components will be checked such as; Bodywork Interior & exterior lights Operation & the condition of windscreen washers/wipers Braking components Steering & Suspension components Condition of tyres & adjusting tyre pressures Vehicles underside Spare wheel/mobility kit. Check the condition of fluids & top up where necessary Replacing air cabin filters to ensure interior air pollutants are kept to a minimum.With the addition of Electric / Hybrid specific items High voltage battery Checking charge connector & cable. High voltage cabling and components condition & routing Charging vehicle Engine oil & oil filter change (Hybrid only) How much does it cost to run/service an electric vehicle? Electric vehicles may be the future of transport, not only are they cheaper to run but their components will last longer and spare parts aren't as expensive. Regenerative braking also ensures that any wear-and-tear on brakes is minimalised meaning you won’t need new ones often if ever! Road tax can be free or discounted depending on where in Europe you driving which means it's more environmentally friendly tooElectric cars offer many great advantages over traditional counterparts like Petrol/Diesel-powered models such as improved fuel efficiency due largely to regenerative braking technology fitted into these electric motors; an improvement over simpler fossil-fueled units without this function. How can I prolong the life of my battery? The best way to keep your electric car running smoothly is by making sure it's charged, not constantly fully. This reduces the amount of strain that can be put on a battery and has other benefits such as allowing regenerative braking which would otherwise not work when you have too many volts from an already full charge trying its hardest against gravity!
