Are Electric Cars Reliable?

Have you been thinking about making the switch to an electric vehicle in the Miami area? You may be asking, “Are electric cars reliable?” Did you know that EVs are more reliable than vehicles with internal combustion engines? This is due to the fact that they have far fewer parts.

 

 

With the average engine block, there are hundreds of moving parts that need to be maintained and replaced. With an EV, which mainly relies on a battery, a transmission, and a motor, there are fewer, simpler parts meaning less chance of a breakdown as you travel in Fort Lauderdale. See why an EV is such an excellent investment below.

EV Maintenance Cost

As mentioned above, EVs have a simpler construction, so they also cost less to maintain. In a Yale Climate Connection study, it was determined that EVs are 40% less expensive to maintain than gas vehicles. When you opt for an EV at BMW of Pembroke Pines, you also no longer have to worry about the services listed below:

  • Oil changes
  • Gasket replacements
  • Belt replacements
  • Spark plug replacement
  • Cooling system flushes
  • Engine air filters
  • And so much more!

Proper EV Maintenance

Just because an EV is less complex does not mean that routine vehicle maintenance is no longer needed. Your vehicle will still require service from time to time. If you drive an EV in Hollywood, keep the information listed below in mind:

  • Correct battery care is a must, because over time, the battery’s charge capacity will diminish. Frequently driving on a low battery can cause it to wear down prematurely.
  • The larger EV battery adds significant weight to the vehicle, and because EVs also deliver instant torque, your tires may wear down sooner. This makes tire maintenance even more important.
  • You will still have to replace coolant, brake fluid, and windshield wiper fluids on a regular basis.
  • For your EV to run at its best, make sure all software is up-to-date.
