NRS discusses service changes demanded by electric vehicles

NRS Brakes recently discussed how increased EV usage could impact vehicle servicing. Most notably, technician training and proper equipment were two of the biggest considerations.

“Technicians will need training on the proper methods for disconnecting and working around high-voltage systems, in addition to the use of proper personal protection equipment. Additionally, shop owners will need to make investments in the proper tools and equipment–both PPE and for vehicles. They may also need to decide if they will invest in charging infrastructure at their location,” said NRS.

Replacement brake pad selection remains a constant concern.

“EV owners, shop owners and technicians should not assume that regenerative braking means reduced brake pad service. The same corrosion issues that cause some brake pads to deteriorate will continue to be a challenge EVs face,” NRS stated.
