1. How do I maintain my electric vehicle?
In order to keep your electric vehicle in its best condition it is recommended that you visit your local Fiat workshop in line with the recommended service schedule for your vehicle. For battery electric cars this is usually every 2 years or 16,000 miles, but please check your vehicle service manual for the correct information.
2. Are electric vehicles more expensive to maintain?
The mechanics of an electric vehicle are much simpler than those of a traditional car, due to fewer moving components and liquids to top up or replace during servicing. Thanks to regenerative braking, even the brakes are used less often than in petrol & diesel cars, so they last longer too.
3. Who can service my electric vehicle?
Any of our authorised Fiat workshops can carry out routine servicing and maintenance on your electric vehicle. It’s important that any technical procedures on any part of the high voltage system are carried out by a trained technician using the correct safety equipment and tools.
4. What kind of regular maintenance should I expect?
Regular maintenance for an electric vehicle is similar to that of a petrol or diesel vehicle. As your vehicle ages, wear and tear items such as tyres, wipers and bulbs will require replacement. An electric vehicle requires coolant to guarantee its battery remains in optimum operating range, so this is something which will need changing regularly.
