Electric Vehicle Service at Patrick Cars in Schaumburg & Naperville, IL

Fully electric vehicle's (EV's) are interesting in that they keep that same luxury and performance of your favorite vehicle, but they are also now at the forefront of an environmentally friendly movement. However, one of the biggest benefits is that regular maintenance is less frequent and less expensive for EVs. However, EV's do need maintenance. It's just at different intervals than traditional vehicles. We at Patrick Cars have compiled a list of a few recommendations for service on EVs. For any further questions, or to schedule service, give us a call at 888-858-7418 or schedule your EV service here.

Basic Maintenance

This category includes general tasks that most vehicle owners would think of when it comes to car maintenance. These tasks are the same for EVs. They include: tire rotation, replacing the cabin air filter, and replenishing windshield wiper fluid.

Brake Pads

EV's still need to have their brake pads maintained and serviced. However, thankfully, regenerative braking makes this a much easier process. Regenerative braking takes the kinetic energy of your vehicle and uses it to slow it down. This means less wear and tear on your vehicle's brakes in addition to greater stopping power.

Fluid Checks

Even without the need for regular oil changes, EV's still require other fluid checks. These vehicles still hold things such as brake fluid and coolant and these fluids should be monitored and brought in for service and change whenever necessary. It is recommended to get brake fluid inspected and changed every 22,000 miles or two years. Coolant should be changed over every 150,000 miles or five years.

Tires

As with any car, your EV will need regular tire maintenance as well. It is recommended that every 7.500 miles or every six months you get the tires rotated. We recommend referencing your owner's manual for specific tire recommendations.

Battery

The lithium ion batteries that power EVs offer greater energy density and tend to hold a charge longer, however, every battery in an EV that is sold in the U.S. comes with a warranty that lasts for a minimum of eight years or up to 100,000 miles.
