Do electric cars need serviced?

Electric cars offer a huge advantage over conventional petrol and diesel vehicles when it comes to running costs. An electric car motor has two or three moving parts in comparison to the hundreds of components that make up an internal combustion engine. This means no oil changes, timing belts, sparkplugs, clutches, or gearboxes. Because most electric cars can generate power under braking, they are also very gentle on brakes and tyres. Most electric cars require check-ups rather than any true servicing. The only items that really require replacement are the tyres, brakes, and the cabin air filter.
