EVs Break: The Electrified Garage Is An Independent EV Repair Shop

The future of automotive maintenance lies is repairing electric vehicles.

  • Most people think that EVs don’t need maintenance like ICE cars.
  • Fact is, they do.
  • The Electrified Garage video will raise a few eyebrows, and much interest.

If we were better at managing money, like the Boss who’s in Ibiza partying it up during the Holidays, we’d probably invest in an Electrified Garage franchise. We always hear that electric vehicles don’t need maintenance and don’t breakdown like conventional internal combustion engine cars. But fact of the matter is that they do, and they do.

Rich Rebuilds’ video on The Electrified Garage will certainly pulled the wool off your eyes, as it did to ours. We’ve driven nearly all mass-production EVs as new cars and given that the majority of these EVs are all very recent (with the exception of the Nissan LEAF and Tesla Model S, for example), repairs and upkeep almost seem like a foreign concept.

This sense that EVs are infallible and perfect is further projected by the car builders which remind us regularly that there are no fluids to change, no timing-belts to replace and whatnot. Bottom line is that things do go wrong, these cars do age and they certainly require their fair dose of TLC to keep going.

The video is 22 minutes long but by the end, the sense that EVs are more or less as susceptible to fail and require repairs does take some lust off, especially when we consider how expensive they still are…

Now, if you are an investor, we would suggest you get in touch with the Electrified Garage and buy a franchise. The future of car maintenance is in EVs (or vintage restoration) and these guys seem on top of it all. Unfortunately, there’s only one Chad.
