Electric Vehicle Maintenance & Servicing

Electric Car Maintenance & Servicing

Regular electric servicing and maintenance are essential to keep your electric vehicle at its optimal performance.

Regular maintenance of the battery, electric motor, brakes, cooling system, and tyres is critical to ensure your electric vehicle performs optimally for years.

Your benefits


While EV vehicles still need to be serviced as often as petrol and diesel vehicles, you still save money on maintenance.

Simpler Maintenance

EV vehicles are simpler to maintain due to having half of the number of components compared to petrol/diesel vehicles. EV’s use less engine braking, so there is typically less wear on the brakes.

EV Trained Technicians

Our fully-authorised technicians are electric experts. Our electric experts use genuine parts.

What does EV servicing involve?

Your electric car will require regular servicing, just like a petrol or diesel car. We carry out all the usual roadworthiness checks, but the rest of your service is quite different.


Oil changes are a thing of the past. While your EV vehicle doesn’t require an oil or coolant change it does require brake fluid and a windscreen washer solution.


Our electric experts will check if your charging cable is present and in good condition.


To ensure your battery charges correctly and maintains maximum capacity, our electric experts undergo a battery health check. We will inspect high-voltage cables and secure them if necessary.




To keep your vehicle as safe as possible we check the onboard safety equipment such as windscreen cameras. Similar to regular servicing we will check your windscreen condition and wipers and replace them if necessary. 


The battery in your EV adds weight to your tyres. During your EV service, we will check tyre treads and wheel alignment.


Your EV brakes traditionally do not wear as much as petrol/diesel vehicles. To ensure your brakes are at optimal performance we check your brake pads and rotors and replace them if necessary.

Driving EV

Driving EV

Electric vehicles are becoming increasingly popular as the world moves towards a more sustainable future. There are many advantages that come with sustainable electric mobility (not least in financial terms), however, the thought of this new electric era can be daunting to some. Our brands are electrifying with the times. Audi, Škoda, and Volkswagen electric range is constantly growing and evolving as new models are released.


Public Charging

 To make your electric journey more practical many public charging stations are opening around New Zealand. Shopping malls also have EV charging points available around town.

View the charging stations around the Manawatu region to help plan your next trip.

Home Charging

The most common question asked around EV vehicles is charging at home options. For this, you’ll need a home charging unit.

HRV is Audi’s home installation partner. If you purchase any new e-tron or TFSI e plug-in hybrid vehicle from an Approved Audi dealership, Audi will contribute up to $1,750 (incl GST) contribution towards home installation* of a HRV home EV charger and an e-tron RFID key fob for ChargeNet connection.

Evnex is Volkswagen & Škodas home installation partner. They currently offer 2 smart home EV chargers and a smartphone app that will allow you to customize your EV charging to suit your needs.

The basic rule for battery capacity is to keep the battery between 10% and 80% capacity.

Clean Car Discount

The Government is accelerating the response to climate change to achieve a carbon neutral target for New Zealand by 2050. The Clean Car Discount aims to help bring down transport emissions by making the purchase of zero and low-CO2 emission vehicles more affordable.

Rebates are available for Battery Electric Vehicles and Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicles valued at $80,000 or less, with a 3-star safety rating or above.

The Clean Car Discount will apply only to new and used vehicles registered in New Zealand for the first time.

Our electric vehicle range

Because this is the new standard and a glimpse at the exciting future of performance. It’s an evolution, a shift that changes everything. We didn’t invent electric, we just injected it with Audi DNA.

With the sportiness of a Golf and as versatile as a Tiguan, we’ve redefined what’s possible. The highly anticipated and globally acclaimed EV SUV ID.4 and ID.5 are on their way to New Zealand.
