Electric vehicles typically require less frequent servicing compared to their petrol or diesel counterparts. The Renault Zoe, for instance, has a suggested service interval of 18,000 miles, doubling the 9,000-mile recommendation for its petrol vehicles.
At the same time, Hyundai outlines a similar plan for its electric vehicles, mirroring its petrol and hybrid cars’ service intervals. These intervals are set at 10,000 miles in the first year, extending to 20,000 miles in the second year, and so on, adhering to the “whichever comes first” principle. Similarly, the BMW i3’s service intervals are set for every two years or 18,000 miles, much like the Renault Zoe.
