Electric car drivers could face huge repair costs as EV car parts ‘much more expensive’ – Express

MotorEasy founder and CEO Duncan McClure Fisher said: “EVs are generally very reliable and while we’re seeing increasing numbers coming through our workshop, proportionally they remain much lower than petrol and diesel.

“That is no doubt due in a large part to them being relatively new. But as these vehicles age, there could be other unknown faults that emerge.

“And the costs of these repairs are going to be higher for two reasons: the huge shortfall in qualified technicians, which will mean repairs can only be done in fewer workshops, and the fact so many electrical motors are used throughout EVs that replacing even a basic part can be much more expensive.”

Mr Fisher added that the market is set to rocket in the next few years, especially following the recent fuel crisis that turned the spotlight on petrol and diesel supplies.
