Electric cars need maintenance too - check out this guide to help you understand what maintenance is required for your lease car.
Every car needs to be maintained during a lease contract whether you decide to take out a maintenance package or pay for any maintenance needs yourself. This is no different to electric cars so make sure you understand what maintenance is required for your electric car before you get started with your lease.
There are considerably fewer parts in an electric car compared to a conventional petrol or diesel car so there are less parts to maintain. The essentials of electric car maintenance include:
Electric car maintenance is considered to be a lot cheaper than petrol or diesel cars due to them having fewer parts and a regenerative braking system. Unlike a petrol car, an electric car doesn’t have a clutch, gearbox, exhaust or engine oil. With fewer parts that can go wrong, electric cars need less parts replacing over time. Maintenance costs can be as much as 50% less than a regular car.
As mentioned above, regenerative braking greatly reduces the wear and tear on your brakes. It makes them more efficient. They may still need replacing but on a lot less regular basis – saving you money.
If you are worried about maintaining your electric lease car throughout your contract by yourself, we offer an electric car maintenance package across all of our electric cars. The maintenance package covers MOT testing, scheduled servicing, all repairs / replacement parts (unless due to driver error) and many other features. You will pay a set maintenance price on top of what you are paying for the car.
If you are interested in a maintenance package, you can select it on the car’s offer page or ask your sales consultant to provide you with a price once you have enquired.
