Are EVs Reliable?

2024 Silverado EV off roading


Curious about electric car reliability? EVs are more reliable than vehicles with internal combustion engines. This is because they have far fewer parts. Whereas the average engine block incorporates hundreds of moving parts that need to be maintained and replaced, your electric vehicle relies on a battery, a transmission, and a motor. With fewer, simpler parts, there are fewer opportunities for a breakdown on Lawrenceville roads. Take a moment to learn more about the benefits of EVs. Then, explore our selection of electric vehicles, fill out a pre-approval, and contact Rick Hendrick Chevrolet Duluth to schedule test drives in Duluth! 

Are Electric Vehicles Cheaper to Maintain? 

Not only are electric cars reliable, but they’re also far cheaper to maintain because they have fewer parts. The Yale Climate Connection performed a study that determined that EVs are 40% less expensive to maintain than gas vehicles. Here are just a few of the components that Suwanee drivers will no longer have to maintain or replace when they service their electric vehicles. Say goodbye to:

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

Furthermore, EV brakes more slowly than gas-powered vehicles of the regenerative braking technologies they feature!

What Maintenances Do Electric Vehicles Need? 

To properly maintain an EV, Johns Creek should always consult their vehicle’s owner’s manual and follow the service intervals that it recommends to optimize electric vehicle reliability. That said, here are the most important maintenance considerations when it comes to EVs: 

  • Make sure to properly care for your battery, as its charge capacity will shrink over time. The biggest culprit behind decreased battery range is regularly driving on a low battery. 
  • EVs are heavier than gas vehicles because of their huge batteries. They also deliver instant torque. Therefore, your tires will wear down a bit faster, so it’s especially important to stay on top of wheel alignments and tire rotations. 
  • You’ll need to replace coolant, brake fluid, and windshield wiper fluids more often. 
  • Stay on top of software updates to ensure your EV is running as smoothly and efficiently as possible.
