Electric Vehicle Air Conditioning
The air conditioning in most electric and hybrid cars is slightly different, as it runs from a high-voltage compressor. Ordinary air conditioning oil conducts electricity, so if the correct procedures are not used, isolation faults can prevent the car from starting.
Electric Vehicle Brakes
Electric and hybrid vehicles generally use regenerative braking, where resistance from the electric motor helps slow the car. Although your electric vehicle should require fewer disc and pad changes, the braking system works harder because of the extra weight EVs have, so it’s important the braking fluid is checked and changed regularly.
