For they rarely factor in the or durability of electric vehicles. may be due to the fact that the main electrification is the reduction of petroleum And, of course, opponents of vehicles don t like to mention many other positive

The Tesla Model S actually little to no maintenance compared to vehicles, due to the fact that it has few mechanical parts that can The only parts that regular replacement are windshield and tires. Brake pads require replacement as well, but not as often as those in gasoline-powered since they are used less thanks to regenerative

Regenerative braking takes some of the braking work, the brake pads a break, and it so without additional generators.

An propulsion system s mechanical consist of the propulsion motor, the in the speed controller, radiator a coolant pump (if there is a cooling system), and that s it.

But don t electric vehicles require electronics? They actually fewer electronics than vehicles, as a typical electric system contains the following electronics:

management system.

Electrical, parts include coolant and fans.

Gasoline propulsion contain a longer list of including, but not limited to:

Electronic to adjust various valves.


Throttle controls.
