MAINTENANCE

Taking care of your electric vehicle

805x443-plug-in

 

A fully electric vehicle is likely to have lower service, maintenance and repair costs than a traditional petrol or diesel vehicle. Electric motors contain fewer than 20 moving parts meaning they are inherently reliable. Overall battery electric vehicles have thousands fewer mechanical working parts than the equivalent internal combustion engine vehicle – so there are far less parts to need attention. However, it is still essential that your vehicle is checked periodically to ensure optimum reliability, performance and safety.

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 of the vehicle after still checked for wear and any items, such as pollen filter or tyres, replaced when required.

MAINTENANCE INTERVALS

Regenerative braking will increase range and 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 vehicles life dependant on use and mileage.

In order to keep your electric vehicle in optimum condition it is recommended that you visit a Citroën Authorised Repairer either every 2 years or every 16,000 miles, dependant on which comes first, in line with the recommended service schedule.

IS CARING FOR MY ELECTRIC VEHICLE MORE EXPENSIVE?

A fully electric vehicle is likely to have lower maintenance costs than a traditional internal combustion engine – as they contain far fewer mechanical working parts. Regenerative braking will also reduce wear on brake pads and disks extending their life.

 

WHAT KIND OF REGULAR MAINTENANCE CAN I EXPECT?

Regular maintenance for an electric vehicle is very similar to that or a petrol or diesel vehicle. Wear and tear items such as: tyres, brakes, wipers and bulbs will need replacing as the vehicle ages. Suspension components may also need replacing throughout a vehicles life dependant on use and mileage. An electric vehicle requires coolant to ensure that its battery stays in its optimum operating range, so this will need changing periodically to aid longevity and range.
