Are there any tips to maintain an electric car?

Are there any tips that can help me maintain an electric car even better? I've heard that electric cars are easier to maintain and this is my first time owning an EV.

Answer
“If you want to meticulously maintain your expensive or affordable electric vehicle, your maintenance should center around the battery.
An EV is only as good as its battery, so make sure to keep an eye on the battery and take it in for regularly scheduled checkups.
Additional tips to maintain your electric car are similar to maintaining a gas-powered car. These include:
  • Rotating the tires
  • Replacing air filters
  • Topping off and changing fluids
  • Checking the coolant systems
Keep in mind that you should also take your electric vehicle in for routine scheduled maintenance as outlined in your owner’s manual.
Most of the repairs and maintenance you do for your vehicle will not be covered by your car insurance policy, unless the repairs need to be done as a result of a car accident.
That said, it’s always a good idea to review your policy to ensure you’re not overpaying. If you want the peace of mind of knowing that you’re paying the lowest rates for the best coverage, try using the Jerry app. Jerry automatically reviews your policy every six months and shops for the best deals. And if you need to switch policies to save money, Jerry does all the paperwork for you, so you can save money and time. And the best part–Jerry does all of this for free.”
