4. Less Maintenance
As Plug In America points out, battery electric cars are relatively simple machines.
“EVs have 10-times fewer moving parts than a gasoline powered car,” says the advocacy group. “There’s no engine, transmission, spark plugs, valves, fuel tank, tailpipe, distributor, starter, clutch, muffler or catalytic converter.”
An EV is otherwise a fully equipped automobile, so it does have electrical systems, HVAC, infotainment, and what not.
Because they have regenerative brakes, this tends to save brake pads and rotors from wearing as quickly, at least this is the potential many have realized.
