Electric Vehicle Servicing 

Your electric vehicle will require regular servicing, just like a petrol or diesel vehicle. We carry out all the usual roadworthiness checks, but the rest of your service is quite different.

Your electric vehicle will require regular servicing, just like a petrol or diesel vehicle. We carry out all the usual roadworthiness checks, but the rest of your service is quite different.

When you bring your electric vehicle in for a service, we check for all the usual service items legal requirements, such as wear on the tyres, brakes, wipers and bulbs. But your electric vehicle service will also include the following checks:

  • Charging cable: we check that cable is present and visually check its condition
  • High-voltage components and high-voltage cables: we inspect these for damage and correct routing and securing of lines

Unlike diesel vehicles, electric vehicles don’t need an oil change. Overall, electric vehicles also have far fewer mechanical working parts than the equivalent internal combustion engine vehicle – so there are less parts that need attention. Regenerative braking will also reduce wear on brake pads and discs extending their life.
