Join the millions of drivers who have compared local prices to book.
You need to book an electric car service regularly, just like any petrol or diesel car (ICE). While they are cheaper to maintain overall, you can’t neglect them.
Taking care of your electric car (EV) will increase its lifespan and reliability. A full service history is just as important as with an ICE; it is only the intervals that are further apart.
You should book an electric car service every 1 to 2 years or after a set number of miles, depending on the manufacturer recommendations. These are designed to keep your car in top condition and should not be ignored.
We have helped over 5 million drivers compare and save on their MOT, servicing and repair costs at local garages. In fact, when you compare garages near you through our online comparison site, you can save up to 70% when you choose one of the lower-cost options!

Electric cars don’t use oil. There are no fuel filters or other fluids to top up either.
Alongside the fact that electric cars don’t need oil, fluids or fuel filters, there are several other differences compared to a standard car service. These include:
You still need to take care of your EV, even though it has 90% fewer moving parts than an ICE. Other required maintenance includes:
Your manufacturer may also recommend additional maintenance schedules for other items. Make sure you stick to these as failing to do so can sometimes invalidate your warranty.
Most manufacturers now guarantee that the battery will last around 100,000 miles - about 12 years’ use for the average driver. This extended battery life means that regular servicing should be enough to keep your battery in good condition.
As of August 2021, only 6.5% of UK mechanics were qualified to service electric cars, according to the Institute of the Motor Industry (IMI). Many of them are employed at main dealerships, limiting your maintenance options.
