Do electric cars use motor oil?
Do electric cars use motor oil in their engines? I was thinking about buying an electric car, but I want to know more about how they work.
“No, electric cars don’t use motor oil. There’s a lot most people don’t know about how electric cars operate!
The reason EVs don’t use motor oil is because they don’t have a gas combustion engine that requires oil to lubricate vital engine parts. As a result, you won’t have to change the oil nor will you have to worry about many of the various costs of maintenance that come along with gas-powered vehicles.
Overall, the limited components of an electric car make it far less expensive to operate and maintain, which is one of the main advantages of electric cars on top of its zero emissions. Plus, you have several affordable electric cars to choose from.
Since you’re thinking about buying an electric vehicle, it’s also good to know that some insurance companies offer green discounts.
