Cars and Trucks Cost Less 4 maintenance FACTORS TO CONSIDER­­ WITH ELECTRIC CARS

Owning an electric car is a great investment due to the many benefits it offers. You have excellent fuel efficiency, and an electric car does make a positive contribution to the environment by reducing emissions. However, when you own an electric car, you need to remember the factors that go into keeping it maintained. Let's take a look at four common EV issues to think about when weighing the pros and cons.

 

IMPORTANCE OF TIRE ROTATIONS

IMPORTANCE OF TIRE ROTATIONS

 

Just like any other vehicle, you still need to rotate the tires regularly. This is just as essential to electric vehicles -- and even more so. Electric cars have more heavy parts that they carry around while driving, so the tires get more wear and tear. The batteries are typically 10% to 20% heavier, for one thing. It's best to rotate your tires regularly so that you don't have to replace them as often.

 

BATTERY LIFE AND MAINTENANCE

 

Since the battery is the most important part of an electric vehicle, you need to ensure that you keep it maintained. You want it to last as long as possible because it is one of the most expensive parts of the electric vehicle. These batteries can go through many times of being recharged if they are maintained properly. But, if you don't keep up with the maintenance, and you have to replace it, it could cost a lot for the battery.

 

CHARGING STATIONS AND COMPATIBILITY

 

One of the things you'll need to keep up with when it comes to an EV is charging it on a regular basis. You may need to do that as you're driving around, or you can do it at home overnight. When you have a gas car, you can go to about any gas station and there is fuel to fill up your tank. Electric vehicles need a special type of charging station.

 

Fortunately, many of these charging stations are placed all around the country, so you shouldn't have too much trouble finding places to recharge -- unless you live in a rural area.
