Electric Vehicles Care Tips

Tips For Care Electric Cars

1. Make sure your electric car is protected from dirt. Keep it clean with water. Also, make sure that the car is in the covered parking. If there is no roof or tin shed above the car, then keep it covered with a cover.

2. Keep more air in the tires. This will reduce the tire's exposure to the ground and reduce the chances of flat spots forming on the tire.

The air pressure in the tires decreases even when the car is parked for a long time. In such a situation, when you take the vehicle out to run, the tire pressure will be right.

3. Keep the electric car fully charged. With this, the health of the battery will be good.

4. Start the car at intervals of a few days. Move the window up and down and drive the car for a few meters. Reverse and park again.

If you find some other place for parking, then it will not bring flat spots on tires. Also, the health of the battery will be good by starting the car.

5. Use a regular normal charger to charge the electric car. Do not use a fast charger.

6. The iSmart infotainment system in electric cars like the MG ZS EV should switch off in case the vehicle is parked for a long time. Apart from this, AC and smart systems should not be used when the car's motor is off. This will save battery.

7. Make sure the car doors and windows are closed properly and the car is not parked on the slope.

Tips For Electric Bike / Scooter

1. Battery should be disconnected

Since your vehicle is parked for a long time, its battery mustn't be discharged. If the electric two-wheeler is a swappable or removable battery, remove the connection of the vehicle battery and disconnect it.

2. Use shutdown mode

Many electric two-wheelers come with a shutdown mode. With this mode, the vehicle switches off completely.

The Ather 450 electric scooter, for example, has a shutdown mode. It has been designed for better battery management. This mode should be used while the vehicle is parked for a long time.

3. Charge every 3-4 days

To prevent the battery from being completely discharged, the electric two-wheelers should be charged every third or fourth day, even if you are not using the vehicle. The battery continues to discharge even when the electric two-wheeler is parked.

4. Required safe parking

First of all, make sure that your vehicle is parked safely. Where it stands, there should be a cover at the top like a tin shed or a roof. If it is not, then the vehicle cover must be installed on the vehicle.

This will protect the vehicle from direct sunlight, dust, and dirt. Safe parking is not just for electric vehicles, but all types of vehicles are required.
