Are electric cars cheaper to service than petrol and diesels?
It is stated that electric cars will be much cheaper to service than petrol/diesel. Is this actually the case?
It's certainly cheaper as there are fewer moving parts. There's no need for an oil change, for example. Nissan charges £209 for a minor service on a petrol car, £249 for a diesel or £159 for an EV. A major service is £289 for a petrol, £349 for a diesel, £209 for an EV.
