How many lubricants does an electric car use?
I just bought my first electric car and I want to be sure I’m learning as much as I can about its care and maintenance to extend its lifetime. How many lubricants do electric cars use, and should I have any on hand?
Answer provided by
First of all, congrats on your new electric car! While electric cars don’t require any of the typical lubricants or oils that you might need for a standard combustion engine, they do have some moving parts that will need to be lubricated from time to time. A few components of an electric car that need lubricating greases include:
- Wheel bearings
- Air conditioner components
- Central locking mechanism
If you want to know what specific lubricants you might need to keep on hand, you should ask your dealership or an experienced electric car mechanic for tips.
