To support Singapore’s shift to greener mobility, the Land Transport Authority (LTA) has partnered with 21 organisations to train and certify automotive technicians in the safety-related areas of electric vehicle (EV) maintenance and servicing. This partnership is part of LTA’s efforts to upskill our existing workforce in support of the adoption of electric vehicles and […]
Maintenance needs and safety requirements for plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs) and hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs) are similar to those of conventional vehicles, while all-electric vehicles require less maintenance. Manufacturers are designing these vehicles and publishing guides with maintenance and safety in mind.
Just as regular internal combustion engine (ICE) cars need oil changes, tune-ups and regular tire rotation — to name just a few things that go into preventative maintenance — electric vehicles also require preventative maintenance to continue running their best.
Electric vehicles represent a complete different technology compared with internal combustion engines. This means that new safety hazards, mainly related to the characteristics of high-power electric equipment, may be present.
Electric Car Maintenance – As electric vehicles become more popular, new EV owners need to know how to properly maintain their cars. Electric car maintenance does not require all the same procedures as petrol or diesel vehicles, but some things are still important to consider.
When you look under the bonnet of a petrol or diesel car, you expect to see an engine. But what’s under the bonnet of an electric vehicle?Plug-in electric vehicles (EVs) work in a different way to conventional cars, so they need different maintenance and servicing.
