Electric vehicles use regenerative braking, which allows energy that is lost when your car slows down to be converted back into energy for the battery. Regenerative braking is an excellent example of electric cars' benefits and makes braking more efficient, so there's minor wear and tear on your brake system. You will still occasionally have to restore parts such as the brake pads and replace brake fluid.
Brake pads- With an electric car, you will still need to maintain the brake pads. However, thanks to regenerative braking, this is generally much easier to do. Regenerative braking helps avoid the energy loss that occurs when a regular car brakes, so brake pads in electric cars rarely need replacing.
Brake fluids - Even though electric cars do most of their stopping with regenerative braking, they all have standard brake discs and pads. They get pressed together via the same hydraulic fluid found in a conventional car. The hygroscopic fluid tends to absorb water from the air and can corrode your brake system unless you regularly rinse it.
How often an electric car needs to be serviced depends on how much you drive, what regeneration settings you use and what terrain you're driving on. Brake inspections involve checking that there is enough brake fluid and to see if it’s in good condition. The pipes that carry the brake fluid will also be checked frequently, and the brake pads also get examined to ensure that they are at the correct depth. All of these components can be replaced if it is considered necessary to do so.
The lights on your car may not seem the most critical asset, however, it's vital for them to be in perfect condition when driving in harsh conditions or at night. From the lights on your dashboard to your headlights, they all need to be in good shape and working correctly.
