100% of an electric vehicle’s propulsion is provided by the drive motor and battery meaning that there is no need for regular engine oil and filter changes. It is important that the other systems in the vehicle are still checked for wear and any items, such as pollen filters, replaced when required.
Regenerative braking will not only increase range but also reduce wear on brake pads and discs extending their life. Wear and tear items such as tyres, brakes, wipers and bulbs will still need replacing as the vehicle ages. Suspension components may also need replacing throughout a vehicle’s life dependent on use and mileage.
