The automotive industry is on the verge of opening the EV floodgates. Between now and 2023, dozens of new EV models will be released and they will require scheduled maintenance. While dealerships will provide training for its staff, it is slightly challenging for independent shops and fleet services.
There are very few trained professionals who are capable of working on an electric vehicle. The automotive industry might not be prepared for it due to a lack of knowledge of new technologies.
Independent shop mechanics should consider exploring training options as it will serve them and curb the fear of the unknown.
EVs are extremely appealing to perform maintenance on. In a regular internal combustion engine car, there may be many things that turn, that are spinning, using oil, gas and spark. In an EV, however, there’s nothing to it! Just an electric motor and a little bit of knowledge.
