Going EV means less money spent on car maintenance

All-Electric Vehicles (EV) require less maintenance than conventional vehicles because there are fewer fluids (like oil and transmission fluid) to change, far fewer moving parts, and no emissions components. EVs require minimal scheduled maintenance to their electrical systems, which can include the battery, electrical motor, and associated electronics. Because of regenerative braking, brake systems on EVs typically last longer than on conventional vehicles.

  1. No Oil Changes: EVs do not require engine oil, thus there are no oil changes (normally required every 3,000 to 7,000 miles, requirements vary by automobile manufacturer)
  2. No Spark Plugs and Wires: EVs do not require spark plugs and wires, thus no replacement (estimated replacement at 100,000 miles on gas engine)
  3. No Exhaust System: EVs do not have mufflers or catalytic converters, two component of your exhaust system that can fail and result in expensive replacements.
