Are electric cars cheaper to maintain?
Yes, electric cars are cheaper to maintain, there is no oil to top up or filter to change, no gaskets to replace, and overall, fewer moving parts to wear out, making them generally more reliable. It means much lower maintenance costs.
How do electric vehicles work?
An EV uses an on-board battery instead of a fuel tank, which gets charged via an electricity supply. The energy is then stored and used to power an electric motor which sets the wheels in motion. An EV has no need for a clutch, gearbox or an exhaust pipe, meaning an EV is much quieter and smoother to drive.
