Electric Vehicle (EV) Servicing
Electric Vehicle (EV) Servicing
EV vehicles are the vehicles of the future. EV vehicles continue to grow in popularity each year. As the number of new cars increases, they are becoming more affordable, and they now offer improved range. EV’s increased popularity is due, in part, to the fact that their environmental impact is much lower than a regular petrol or diesel fuelled vehicle, but also because they offer lower running costs and are exempt from urban congestion charges.
With rising public awareness of environmental issues and an expanding number of manufacturers offering electric vehicle options, an increasing number of drivers are opting for EV options when it comes to buying a new car.
EV Servicing at D&G Autocare
D&G Autocare performs vehicle services for our retail customers as well as the largest Fleet operators in the UK. We have 17 service centres across the Central Belt of Scotland supporting both our retail and business customers.
We provide low-cost yearly EV services, making a D&G Autocare service less expensive than a dealership without sacrificing quality. Our team of qualified technicians, who are specifically qualified to maintain EV vehicles, will complete your EV service at D&G Autocare branches.
We recommend EV’s continue to follow the manufacturer service schedules, that means a service schedule that is specifically tailored to the vehicle as outlined by the vehicle manufacturer, as generic servicing isn’t suitable for EV’s just now. EV servicing can be booked online. However, we may need a little more detail about your vehicle to book you in. You can book online from our website www.dandgautocare.co.uk .
What is different about EV services?
Although there are fewer moving parts and fluid changes required with an EV regular servicing can help to spot problems with your electric car before they become a problem. Preventative maintenance is crucial to avoiding costly repairs later.
Electric vehicles can have different wear rates for items like brakes and tyres than conventional petrol and diesel vehicles, so it’s important to have regular checks on these items by our trained technicians. They also have different maintenance requirements (no engine oil change) but have additional filters or cooling systems that will need attention.
It’s also important to remember that on some EV’s the air conditioning system plays an important role in keeping the battery at the correct temperature to maximise efficiency and longevity. Your vehicle owner’s manual handbook will tell you exactly when your service is due and the interval between each service.
Providing COST-U-LESS motor vehicle maintenance with the highest standard products and care.
How much does an EV Service cost?
We need to provide you with a quote tailored to your vehicle because the manufacturer’s service schedule varies depending on the age, model, and mileage of your vehicle.
Our EV service is backed by a 12-month or 12,000-mile guarantee, and if you have a warranty, it is honoured. Because our parts and labour are as effective but more competitively sourced, we can be much less expensive than a dealership
