Electric vehicles (EVs) and hybrids are becoming increasingly popular and affordable. Many consumers are excited to shy away from gasoline in exchange for alternate fuel sources. Even though hybrid vehicles operate similarly to their gas-powered counterparts, hybrids and EVs have vital differences that make them unique to service. Unfortunately, many repair shops lack the equipment to handle either hybrid or EV repairs, so most drivers get their cars serviced at their local dealership.

On the outside, electric vehicles look almost identical to gas-powered vehicles. However, on the inside, it’s a whole different story. While traditional cars are composed of hundreds of moving parts, electric vehicles have far fewer. Plus, EVs have swapped out gas tanks, engines, and gas pumps for batteries, motors, and chargers, respectively. Because of these differences, you’ll need to bring your vehicle to an experienced shop that understands electric vehicles inside and out.
Our shop has performed Tesla repairs and other electric vehicle services for countless customers. Even though these vehicles require less maintenance than gasoline-powered vehicles, they still need to be serviced. If you need EV maintenance and repairs, our staff can replace regenerative brakes, service tires, repair and replace batteries, and more. We’re happy to explain our services and answer any of your questions, so speak with one of our technicians today!
There are several differences between hybrid and electric vehicles and their traditional counterparts. However, there’s one major feature that differentiates the two groups — their batteries. Even hybrids, which also use gasoline, heavily rely on batteries that can keep them running for many hours at a time. But batteries don’t last forever: Tesla batteries can last up to 300,000 to 500,000 miles, but it’s not uncommon for EV batteries to last far less. Fortunately, at Premier1 Auto Care, our technicians can repair or replace your battery and keep your vehicle running for years to come.
If any of your battery’s cells are damaged or defective, our technicians will carefully remove and replace them. We can also repair or replace batteries that are affected by poor electrical connections or extreme heat exposure. Regardless of what Tesla repairs or other EV problems you’re struggling with, we’re here to get your vehicle back on the road.
