Pure electric cars have fewer moving parts than petrol or diesel, so there are fewer things that can go wrong or need replacing, making your electric Volkswagen simpler to service. This can end up making servicing your electric VW cheaper.
What’s different about an electric Volkswagen service?
Servicing Battery Electric Vehicles (BEV) includes checking for all the usual service items legally required of a roadworthy car, e.g. wear on the braking system and tyre condition to name a couple. As well as this we’ll also inspect and replace electric-specific elements, such as:
- Charging cable: we check that cable is present and visually check its condition
- High-voltage battery: we check the charge level and recharge it if necessary
- High-voltage components and high-voltage cables: we inspect these for damage and correct routing and securing of lines
