If you’re driving or thinking about purchasing a Lexus EV, Hybrid, or BEV, it’s important to know that electric vehicle maintenance is different from your typical car maintenance.

There are many benefits to purchasing an EV, such as being eco-friendly and saving money on fuel. Most importantly, the maintenance cost is far less than that of a gas-powered vehicle. Studies show that EV owners spend half as much on routine maintenance compared to gasoline-powered cars. This is because electric cars have fewer parts and don’t require regular maintenance, such as oil changes.

Although you won’t be making frequent visits to your mechanic anymore, that doesn’t mean electric cars don’t require any maintenance; there are still a few things you need to keep your eye on. Here are our top 6 tips for maintaining your electric vehicle:


Make sure your vehicle is ready for the roads by staying on top of Lexus EV routine maintenance. Below, you will find a few of the key steps of the Lexus electric car maintenance schedule.



Battery Checks

We highly encourage regular battery checks because of the important role that the battery plays in an EV. These inspections are even more important if your vehicle features a lithium-ion pack. You can expect about 100,000 miles or more out of your EV battery, but regular inspections help to pinpoint small issues before they cause bigger problems.


Brake Fluid Replacement

Oil changes are not a part of the Lexus electric car maintenance schedule. However, you will have to maintain other fluids, such as brake fluid. Every 3-5 years, you will need to replace the brake fluid.

3 EV Benefits COOLANT

Coolant System Maintenance

Does your EV have a special thermal management or cooling system to improve battery performance? To see when this service is needed, take a look at your owner’s manual. 



Tire Rotation

EV battery packs are quite heavy, and the added weight can cause your tires to wear down sooner. A tire rotation should occur every 5,000 to 10,000 miles.


Wheel Alignment

Remember to also have your wheels aligned every 15,000 miles to boost mile range and reduce tire tread wear.

6 EV Benefits AIR FILTER

Air Filter Replacement

Minimize the amount of pollen, road dust, dirt, and other harmful contaminants that enter the cabin of your vehicle when you replace the air filter every two-three years. Some specialty filters can go as long as five years before needing replacement.
