Tire service  
Tire Service

Tending to the tires on your EV will not differ much from how you take care of the tires on your gas-powered car. They will still make the first impression on the road, so it’s important to take care of them.

For one thing, you should check the tire pressure monthly to make sure that they’re properly inflated. It’s also good to have the tires rotated regularly. During this service, the technician will switch the front and the rear tires to allow for even tread wear. Due to the weight of the vehicle’s battery pack, you may need to replace the tires on an EV more often.

New tires start out with deep treads. However, the treads will wear and become shallower as you drive, so eventually the tires will need to be replaced.

EV Battery Service  
Brake Service

Brake pads cushion the rotors, which provide the braking power. With an EV, the brake pads will last longer as a result of the regenerative braking that it employs.

Regenerative braking puts energy back into the car’s battery when you apply the brakes. This puts less pressure on the pads, so they won’t need to be replaced as often.

The brake calipers may see less usage too. So, you’ll want to make sure that they receive the proper lubrication to continue functioning as designed.

Battery Service
Electric Nissan Service
While a gas-powered car may need a new battery every three to five years, an EV can rely on the same battery for a longer period of time. As long as you keep your vehicle in a shaded or enclosed area, like a garage, the battery can last for 12 to 15 years. That may coincide with you considering purchasing a newer car.
If you live in a more extreme climate or cannot park your car in a protected area, the battery can endure for up to eight years or 100,000 miles.
EV Fluid Check
Necessary Fluids, Filters, and Miscellaneous Service
Your electric Nissan needs specific fluids to operate properly. However, it won’t need oil changes, which frees up your time and is easy on your budget. Checking and refilling the brake, power steering, transmission, and windshield wiper fluids will be necessary at the appropriate service intervals.
The windshield wipers will need to be replaced when they start smearing instead of clearing. You also should keep an eye on the vehicle lights. Interior, exterior, and blinker lights should be replaced when they no longer work as designed.
Plus, the cabin air filter should be changed according to the times or the mileage listed in your owner’s manual and/or maintenance schedule. This filter keeps allergens and other outside matter at bay.
