May 9th, 2022 by

Here at Starling Chevrolet, we believe in a comprehensive and complete approach to Chevrolet service. That’s why we provide high-quality parts and expert service and maintenance support at our Deland dealership. We’re also sharing everything you need to know about caring for your new electric vehicle.

Benefits of Electric Vehicles

When it comes to electric vehicles, there are many benefits to consider. You’ll reduce your impact on the environment and you’ll save money on every ride since you won’t have to worry about fuel fill-ups.

Another benefit of purchasing an electric vehicle is that you won’t need to schedule as much service or care. Electric vehicles are much less complex than internal combustion engine vehicles, and they have fewer parts and systems that need to be serviced or maintained.

Electric vehicles rely on a configuration of electric motors and batteries, and they don’t have the same number of moving parts needed to keep the system functioning properly. That means there are fewer fluids running through the system as well, which means no more worrying about fill-ups or leaks.

A system that often needs repairs or service is the braking system, but you won’t need to service your brakes as often in an EV, either. That’s because EVs rely on regenerative braking, a way of capturing the energy of the brake system before it is released as heat. There is less pressure on the brakes with regenerative braking, so they can go longer periods of time without service.

You can find EV models and the service that will support them right here at Starling Chevrolet. Schedule a test drive in Deland today.
