There are quite a few drivers that recognize the countless benefits of owning an electric vehicle. Such benefits include a reduced operation cost, lower vehicle emissions, and other advantages for example. With more and more consumers joining the electric vehicle market today, there is a call for supply and demand, and as such development is increasing in advanced technology for new electrical cars that marry the best qualities of a typical combustion engine and electric varieties. However, despite the advanced technology, electrical vehicles are just as susceptible issues just as traditional vehicles are. Today, we at Citywide Towing Service would like to share the most common reasons as to why an electrical vehicle would need professional roadside services.
Electric Car Battery Failure
Beyond experiencing a drained battery, electrical vehicles are generally equipped with the lithium-ion based batteries, which experiences decay and will even breakdown just like any other battery. Though there are newer and better constructed batteries in the newer models of electric vehicles when compared to the older models, the batteries will eventually come to the end of their span and will need replacing. Where batteries rarely choose a convenient time to die, if it happens while you are on the road, you have roadside assistance services to help.
Drained Electric Car Battery
Much like a standard vehicle running out of fuel, an electric vehicle can run out of the charge on the battery. Despite the vast improvement the electrical vehicle’s batteries have evolved over the years, the battery’s charge is still limited. With very few public areas being available where drivers can get their electric cars recharged, it can be a challenge for drivers to have enough power in their battery to get to while on the road. Thanks to professional roadside assistance services, if your battery drains on the road, you can have the help you need.
Problems with Tires on Electric Vehicles
When compared to the standard combustion vehicles, the majority of the electric vehicles are much heavier. The extra weight of the battery system is where most of the extra weight comes from. The tires then experience an accelerated rate of wear on the tire’s tread with this additional force and pressure on tires, which also increases the risk the tires becoming flat from punctures and other sources. As most are aware of, tire problems can be affected to all vehicles, and electric cars are not the exception, but perhaps the most susceptible. Calling for roadside assistance can easily get you out of this predicament.
Braking System in Electric Cars
Just like those in vehicles with general combustion engines, the brakes in electrical vehicles eventually wear down over time and use. This eventually calls for a brake rotor and pad replacement. Though electric vehicles are equipped with a special regenerative braking system that limit the amount / exponential increase of degradation, they are not immune to brake deterioration. If the brakes become ineffective, you will want roadside assistance to give you a tow to a trusted mechanic to prevent additional damage and keep you and others safe on the road.
