Electric Vehicle Service FAQs

Do electric cars need oil changes?

No. You won’t have to schedule an oil change in Avon for your new Porsche EV because it’s powered exclusively by a battery and electric motors rather than a gasoline engine.

Does an EV cost more to service?

Electric vehicles like a new Porsche Taycan typically cost less to service compared to gas-powered cars because their powertrains have fewer parts and fluids to maintain. According to a U.S. Department of Energy report from June 2021, the estimated scheduled maintenance cost of a light-duty battery-electric vehicle is less than $.07 per mile, while a conventional internal combustion engine costs about $.10 per mile to service.

Are electric cars cheaper to maintain?

In most cases, yes. Because of the nature of electric powertrains, you won’t have to worry about tune-ups, timing belt replacements and other common gas engine maintenance requirements. You’ll instead be doing more minor, infrequent service such as windshield wiper replacement and tire repairs.

Are electric car service intervals the same as gas vehicles?

Not usually, as you can typically go longer between service visits with an EV when compared to a gas-powered car. You’ll still need to visit us if you want to schedule a tire rotation nearby or require new Porsche brakes, but we can discuss how often this might be needed when you visit our Porsche service center near Avon.
