This week a strange message on BNR about that electric cars would be more expensive to maintain than ICE. A monkey sandwich, of course! An EV has almost no maintenance. However? Well not quite. Since most Teslas come to the Tesla Service Center for maintenance (if necessary), you only come to the regular garages for tires. Two or four new (winter) tires are probably more expensive than a MOT or small service of a Suzuki Alto or VW Polo. Hence the headline that EVs are more expensive to maintain! Slightly misleading headline. Is nuanced in the article. Unfortunately, that’s how it works with digital media. The headline is often negative and / or misleading. Only then will you score a click and thus more advertising income. But while we’re on the subject of tires.
