How often does an electric car need to be serviced?

While gasoline cars have dozens of mechanical components that require service or repair, electric cars are much simpler. You won’t need to do tune-ups, oil changes, or change spark plugs, drive belts, or service transmissions. But, electric cars are still cars. They will still need service because they contain many hard-working components that make them stop, go, and turn. Tires, brakes, and suspensions are subject to wear and tear and should be regularly inspected according to the manufacturer’s recommendations, usually once a year.
