How much money do electric car mechanics make?
I’ve been into fixing cars since I was young. My dad and I would spend every Sunday afternoon working on his classic cars in the garage, drinking Arnold Palmers, and listening to Led Zeppelin. I’ve been looking into becoming a mechanic, but I know electric vehicles are on the rise. Do you get paid more for knowing how to work on electric cars? How much money do electric car mechanics make?
