5 Electric Vehicle Maintenance Tips for a Longer Life

5 Electric Vehicle Maintenance Tips for a Longer Life, Battery care is a must

Electric vehicles have recently gained popularity, as they not only help people eliminate fuel costs but also lead to minimal maintenance costs. Unlike traditional internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicles, EVs have fewer moving parts, i.e., they do not come with an engine or a traditional automatic transmission, which needs regular repair and maintenance or might sometimes need replacement. However, for a smooth experience, one should follow these tips for the longer life of their electric vehicles. In this blog, we will dive deep into the tips for maintaining your EV.

1.Battery care is a must

The battery of your EV is its most essential and expensive component, and it requires your special attention. By taking care of your EV battery, you can increase its lifespan and overall efficiency.

Follow these 3 tips for your EV battery care:

    1. Do not overcharge/undercharge your battery: Maintain your charge between 20% to 80%. Do full charge only when necessary.
    2. Don’t miss regular software updates: Keep your EV’s software updated.
  • Do not expose your EV to extreme temperatures: 
  • Park your EV in a covered or shaded area. 
  • Allow the battery to cool down before recharging. 
  • Use a fast charger only when it is necessary. Prefer AC charging for your daily charging needs. At Statiq EV charging stations, you can find both AC and DC chargers to charge your vehicle at your convenience.

2.Efficient brake system is your savior

Before buying an EV, one should prefer one that uses regenerative braking technology. Regenerative braking technology helps recharge the battery by converting kinetic energy into electrical energy. This comes with various advantages: 

  • Reduces wear and tear by eliminating friction during brakes, giving less strain to the tires and resulting in minimal maintenance costs. 
  • Saves energy by reusing the power generated during braking. 
  • It reduces the need for frequent charging or refueling, decreasing the overall running cost.

3.Do not Ignore tire maintenance

EVs have instant torque (rotational force of the wheels), which on slippery roads can increase the likelihood of spinning. EVs are usually heavier than ICE vehicles due to their battery packs hence EVs require special care for their tires. Do regular inspections of your tires and get them serviced by professionals in every 6 months.

4.Pay attention to electric motor 

EVs do not have engines, but they are powered by electric motors, which require regular maintenance and care. Get your motor inspected regularly by certified mechanics for smooth driving.

5.Keep the cooling systems cool

Electric vehicles use cooling systems to maintain battery temperatures and power electronics. It’s important to periodically check and clean cooling vents to maintain adequate airflow, ensuring they operate optimally.


Proper maintenance is key to ensuring the longevity and performance of your electric vehicle. By following these five maintenance tips and staying proactive with care and attention, you can maximize the lifespan of your EV and enjoy efficient and eco-friendly driving for years.
