How Long Do Electric Vehicles Last?
Everybody wants to know how much life they can get out of a car before they buy it. Unfortunately, knowing the exact number of years or miles a vehicle will get to before it conks out is impossible. There are, however, some factors that can give you some great insight.
If you’re thinking about buying an electric Maserati, these are the areas you’ll want to pay close attention to:
One of the most important parts of an electric car is the battery, which is why it needs to be cared for properly. Avoiding extreme heat is one way to do this.
You’ll also want to use a fast-charging station sparingly, as the intense current these generate strain the battery. Keeping your battery between 25 and 75 percent charged is a smart idea as well. If you keep your battery in good condition, it should last 10 years or longer.
All cars, regardless of their powertrain, need regular maintenance to ensure they offer good performance and have a long lifespan. While you won’t have to worry about oil changes with your electric Maserati, you can’t forget about other important service. Brake inspections, for example, should be done yearly so you can gauge the health of the system.
You’ll also want to rotate your tires about every six months, as this will help them last a lot longer. There are also many systems in your car – including the transmission and power steering – that require fluids, and these should be checked regularly.
With proper care and maintenance, your electric vehicle should give you many years of enjoyment. To learn more about electric Maserati cars or to reserve a model, get in touch with Helfman Maserati of Sugar Land.
