Does Your Electric Car Need Maintenance

Electric cars, both plug-in hybrid and all-electric, require maintenance. The plug-in hybrid (PHEV) and hybrid electric vehicles (HEV) require similar maintenance to that of the typical internal combustion engine vehicle. However, while all-electric automobiles require much less, they still need maintenance regularly.

Karma Newport Beach is a full-service Karma dealership in Newport Beach, CA. Our Karma service center employs professionally certified Karma technicians who use state-of-the-art diagnostic equipment to perform precise maintenance on all high-performance Karma automobiles. Our technicians’ attention to detail and superior knowledge of what makes a Karma run assures a long life for every luxury vehicle they work on. If you are a weekend mechanic and enjoy working on your car, our Karma parts center stocks everything you’ll need to perform your own maintenance.

Karma Engine and Electric Motor Care

Electric cars do need regular maintenance, but not as much as gas-driven cars, due to several factors.

  • There are fewer moving parts in an electric vehicle than in an internal combustion car
  • There is less fluid needed in the electric drivetrain to maintain, including engine oil
  • Electric cars use regenerative braking, so brake wear is significantly less
  • The motor, battery and other electronic components need almost no regular maintenance

Karma maintenance consists of a few things to keep the vehicle running in prime condition. 

  • One very important item is battery maintenance. Although designed and engineered to last a very long time, the batteries installed in Karma automobiles have a limited life cycle. In other words, they can be charged only a limited number of times. The batteries should be checked from time to time to determine how long the remaining life cycle is. 
  • Another part of maintenance is the brakes. Although the braking systems in electric cars is regenerative, they still use friction as a back-up, so they should be checked every now and then. Brake fluid levels will also need checking.
  • Electric vehicles use coolant to regulate the battery temperature, so this level requires maintenance.

Whatever type of Karma maintenance your electric automobile needs, you can rest assured that the Karma-certified technicians here at Karma Newport Beach will keep it in prime running condition. We use all the latest diagnostic equipment, tools, parts and know-how. Schedule a service appointment by calling us or by using our online request form.
