Are Electric Cars Reliable?

2023 Jeep Wrangler 4xe

Are you considering a new EV but wondering about electric car reliability? Are electric cars reliable? EVs are typically more reliable than vehicles with gasoline engines because they have far fewer parts. Whereas the average combustion engine block has hundreds of moving parts that must be maintained and replaced, an EV has only a battery, a transmission, and an electric motor. With fewer, parts, there are fewer breakdowns on Terre Haute streets. Learn more about electric car reliability here with the Burger Chrysler Jeep service team, and explore our impressive selection of electric vehicles online or at the dealership.



How Reliable Are Electric Cars?

Not only are electric cars reliable, but they’re usually less expensive to maintain because they have fewer moving components. How reliable are electric cars? The Yale Climate Connection released a study that suggests EVs are approximately 40% less expensive to maintain than gas vehicles. These are some of the engine parts that Brazil drivers don’t need to maintain or replace when they drive an electric vehicle:

  • Engine air filters
  • Cooling system flushes
  • Gasket replacements
  • Belt replacements
  • Oil changes
  • Spark plugs
  • And much more!

Furthermore, EV brakes last longer because of the regenerative braking technologies they have!

What Maintenances Do Electric Vehicles Require?

To properly maintain your EV for your Sullivan drives, consult your vehicle’s owner’s manual and follow the recommended service interval to optimize your electric vehicle’s reliability. These are the most crucial maintenance tasks for EVs:

  • Take good care of your battery, because its charge capacity will diminish over time. The biggest cause of decreased battery range is routinely driving on a low battery.
  • EVs are heavier than gas vehicles because they have huge batteries. They also produce near-instant torque. So, your tires will wear out a little faster. That means you need to keep up with wheel alignments and tire rotations.
  • EVs need fresh coolant, brake fluid, and windshield wiper fluid.
  • Keep your software updated to ensure your EV is running as efficiently as possible.
