How different is electric vehicle servicing?


Electric vehicles share lots of similarities with diesel and petrol cars – they all have brakes, tyres, suspension, lights and electrics.

But there are a couple of differences. Electric vehicles are actually easier to service because they contain a motor and a battery pack, rather than engines with a complex system of moving parts from pistons and gears, to valves and drive belts.

How often do I need to service my electric vehicle?


Service intervals for electric cars can differ, but you may find that you don’t need to service your electric vehicle as often.

For specific information about your car’s service intervals, check with your manufacturer or contact your local Arnold Clark branch.

How long do batteries in electric vehicles last?


Most manufacturers offer a 3-8 year warranty on electric car batteries, but most batteries last even longer than this. Some are even projected to last up to 20 years.

Which parts of an electric vehicle are checked during servicing?


Your technician will check all of the areas you’d expect during your service, including your brakes, tyres, suspension, lights and electrics.

But an electric vehicle service will include checks of electric motor(s), the battery pack and the high-voltage cabling, too.
