Re: A bit out of date?

"the costs of maintenance of EVs are generally rather generously underestimated."

They don't need to be underestimated the costs are out there. You don't need to service an EV in the traditional sense of an ICE. Tyres and wheels are the same in that regards, Wipers and washers the same, Air filters are similar.

It's a worry for dealers for sure. It's a conflict of interest for them to push an EV for the short term commission knowing that service costs will be a lot lower. However the sales and service departments are separate and have their own targets!
