Is it expensive to maintain an electric car?

Electric cars are fundamentally less complex than gasoline cars, which means they should require less service and maintenance over time. With an electric car, you don’t need to pay for oil changes, tune-ups, spark plugs, and the service of other mechanical components. In normal use, regular maintenance on an electric cars should cost roughly a third as much as on a gasoline car. On the other hand, some items on EVs may require more frequent attention: expect to replace tires more frequently, and to service suspension components more often. The weight and performance of electric cars works these components harder, increasing their wear and tear.
