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.

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