Are electric vehicles more expensive to maintain?

I've read that electric vehicles are cheaper to maintain, but they seem like they use more advanced technology. Does this mean that electric vehicles are more expensive to maintain?

“Electric vehicles are actually less expensive to maintain than their hybrid or gas-powered counterparts, even if you don’t get the cheapest or most affordable electric vehicle on the market.
The reason that these electric vehicles (EV) are less expensive to maintain is that they have fewer moving parts, and thus less wear and tear. The average EV owner spends about $4,600 less on car maintenance than owners of gas-powered or hybrid vehicles. That’s a sizable amount that shouldn’t be ignored, especially as the prices of EVs continue to fall.
If you’re looking for more ways to save, you might actually get car insurance discounts for driving an EV. If you want help sifting through car insurance discounts, try using the Jerry app. Jerry compares rates from the top providers (including discounts) and delivers the best deals to your phone in minutes.
