eMobility and Servicing : Less hassle for drivers
There are many myths and legends surrounding the servicing of electric vehicles. ŠKODA set the record straight: servicing these cars is simple and routine.
ŠKODA's service partners have had to add a new expertise to their portfolio in recent years. The advent of electric vehicles has meant that they’ve had to learn to deal with the cars’ high-voltage electrical system. This places new demands on service technicians in terms of both knowledge and safety. For the customer, though, these cars are in fact a relief as far as regular servicing goes.
The ŠKODA ENYAQ iV SUV is proof of this. “The ENYAQ iV is the first ŠKODA whose service frequency is not influenced by mileage. The car ought to be serviced regularly every two years,” says Karel Starý, Head of After Sales at ŠKODA Czech Republic. So the electric SUV’s owners don’t have to keep an eye on their mileage at all.
This in itself brings savings, especially for drivers who cover a lot of ground during the year and whose car would otherwise have to be serviced twice in the course of one year. ŠKODA cars with combustion engines are due for servicing after 15,000 or 30,000 kilometres, or after one or two years, whichever comes first. The ENYAQ iV therefore eliminates the need for compulsory servicing, especially at higher mileages, which of course saves the owner time and money.
