As a responsible car owner, you want what’s best for your car, and you know that includes regular vehicle maintenance. But now that electric cars have become so popular, you might be wondering what that means for the traditional auto maintenance tasks you’re used to. Here’s what you need to know about taking care of scheduled maintenance for your electric vehicle.
Understanding How These Cars Are Different
An internal combustion engine powered by gasoline works differently than an electric-powered engine. For starters, there are fewer moving parts. Those who own electric vehicles also say it typically costs less to maintain them.
What You Can Expect at Your Scheduled Maintenance Appointment
In many ways, your car’s maintenance is like any other. Your automotive technician will check the air filters, rotate the tires, and inspect the brakes. The car’s coolant levels will also be checked and topped off if needed.
Typical Maintenance Schedule
In general, your electric-powered vehicle requires a simple maintenance check roughly every 7,500 miles according to many manufacturers. You can expect the battery to last up to eight years or 100,000 miles. Your EV brakes may have a lifespan of double that on your gas- or diesel-powered vehicle.
