EV Maintenance Tips

Our tips for maintaining your electric vehicle and EV charger for longevity.

Here are some of our tips on maintaining your electric vehicle and EV charger.

Whilst electric vehicles take less maintenance than petrol/diesel cars, there are some things you should be doing to ensure the longevity and quality of your EV and its charger.

So here are our tips to maintain performance:


  • EVs have fewer fluids to worry about, but brake fluid, coolant, and windshield washer fluid levels should be checked regularly.


  • Keep your EV’s software up to date. Software updates can improve performance, efficiency, and address any potential issues.


  • Regularly inspect the charging cables and connectors for damage or wear. Clean connectors to ensure a good connection.


  • If you’re storing your EV for an extended period, follow the manufacturer’s recommendations for battery storage. Generally, it’s best to leave the battery partially charged and in a cool, dry place.


  • Regularly check tyre pressure and ensure they are inflated to the recommended levels. Proper tyre pressure improves efficiency and handling.
