EVs typically require less maintenance than conventional vehicles because:

The battery, motor, and associated electronics require little to no regular maintenance

There are fewer fluids to change

Brake wear is significantly reduced, due to regenerative braking

There are far fewer moving parts, relative to a conventional gasoline engine.

Maintenance and Safety
of Hybrid and Plug-In Electric Vehicles
from Hybrid and Plug-In Electric Vehicles
Hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs), plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs), and all-electric vehicles (EVs) typically produce lower emissions than conventional vehicles do. When measuring well-to-wheel emissions, the electricity source is important: For PHEVs and EVs, part or all of the power comes from off-board sources of electricity. There are emissions associated with the majority of electricity production in the United States.
