Electric cars can't cut UK carbon emissions while only the wealthy can afford to own one

Re: A bit out of date?

Brake pads do last longer on an EV because they prefer regenerative braking, but I don't know what the lifetime is. Wheel bearings are not a service item on most modern cars and in many cases can't be replaced without tossing out the entire hub assembly.

Out of interest which electrical items are you referring to? I'm talking about scheduled servicing, not unscheduled replacement of unexpected parts failures.

(I also didn't mention tyres because who gets their tyres replaced at a stealership? - shouldn't have mentioned wiper blades for the same reason)
