Re: A bit out of date?

It's certainly fair to say that there are still a lot of things that can go wrong on an EV, but a lot of them aren't scheduled service items.

Battery coolant is an interesting one. I had assumed the very different operating environment meant this was a lifetime item or close to it. It looks like it's a 5 year/100,000 km replacement on a Tesla.

Suspension should only be under more strain if they're not properly specified. They're not taking suspension from a 1750 kg vehicle and throwing it straight on a 2500 kg vehicle. At least I hope not.
