Unlike petrol or diesel engines with their thousands of moving parts, an electric motor does not require so much attention. A lot of the servicing that we are used to with conventional combustion engines is not necessary with iV cars.
Why do iV cars require regular servicing?
Battery cell health and proper cooling
A high-voltage battery is a component specific to all electric cars. Its cooling system must be checked whenever the car is brought in for a service. Another difference compared to conventional cars is that the heat pump coolant needs to be changed every 2 or 4 years, depending on the country’s climate.
Car software diagnostics
To ensure that your iV car is running smoothly, the latest software updates should always be in place.
Regular component check
Conventional systems – such as brakes, the steering or suspension – need to be checked regularly in the same way as for ICE cars.
How often is service check needed?
If you have an ENYAQ iV or ENYAQ COUPÉ iV, you should have a regular service every 2 years, but this is not dependent on the mileage – unlike with ICE cars that require regular service also after a certain milage.
