Electric Vehicle Servicing

Just like petrol and diesel cars, it's important to get your electric vehicle (EV) serviced regularly to keep it running smoothly and safely. Not only does regular servicing maintain the value of your vehicle but can help identify any areas that need attention. Our experienced technicians are equipped to provide specialist services for EVs, ensuring they continue to perform optimally and efficiently. PTA has made significant investments in equipment and training to cater to the specific needs of EVs. Our technicians have completed the Autotech IMI Qualification in EV/Hybrid Vehicle Maintenance, Systems Repair, and Replacement. This ensures that your EV receives the highest standard of care and attention.

What happens in an EV service?

Electric vehicles have fewer components than their petrol and diesel counterparts, making them easier to maintain. They are made up of three main components:

  • An Electric Motor
  • An on-board charger
  • Inverter

However, there are other parts of your vehicle that need servicing regularly to make sure your car is running at its best.

Diagnostic and Check
