EV Repairs & Servicing

With the increasing popularity of electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles, there is a rise in demand for independent garages to provide electric car servicing.

We know that there are numerous electric cars buzzing around the Exeter area that currently have very limited choices when it comes to servicing and repair.

Here at MBS Exeter, we want to ensure that we are at the forefront of new technology, so our garage technicians are currently undergoing training in order to obtain the IMI-accredited qualifications needed to service and repair electric and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles.

Servicing an electric car is not quite the same as servicing any other vehicle. It requires specific expertise in high voltage systems, hybrid engines, electrical motors, power inverter systems, energy/hardware systems, electric control propulsion sensing systems, battery regeneration braking systems and other specific elements.

However, servicing a pure electric car or van is actually simpler than servicing conventional petrol or diesel cars. This is because they have fewer moving parts so fewer things that can go wrong and need replacing. An electric vehicle has only three main parts: the electric motor, on-board charger and inverter. For this reason, they cost less to service and maintain, meaning your vehicle may cause you less hassle overall.

When you bring your electric vehicle in for a service, we will perform the usual checks on the standard service items and legal requirements of a roadworthy car, such as wear on the braking system, your headlights and tyre condition to name a few.

In addition, we will also inspect and replace electric-specific elements, such as:

  • Charging cable โ€“ we will check that the cable is present and visually check its condition
  • High-voltage battery โ€“ we will check the charge level and recharge it if necessary
  • High-voltage components and high-voltage cables โ€“ we will inspect these for damage and correct routing and securing of lines

For pure electric cars, oil changes are a thing of the past!

A well-respected and popular garage, MBS Exeter is renowned as one of the leading independent Mercedes, Mini and BMW vehicle specialists in and around Exeter.
