The landscape of hybrid and electric vehicles is constantly evolving, with new advancements and variations emerging:
The most common type, HEVs utilize both an internal combustion engine (ICE) and an electric motor to power the vehicle.
PHEVs possess larger battery packs than HEVs. These vehicles can be charged by plugging into an external power source. Once the battery charge is depleted, the vehicle operates as a conventional hybrid.
BEVs are fully electric vehicles that rely entirely on electric motors for propulsion. They must be charged by plugging into an external power source and do not feature a gasoline engine backup.
Similar to PHEVs, EREVs boast larger battery packs and extended electric driving ranges. These vehicles can operate on electric power alone for a significant distance before the internal combustion engine activates.
We offer maintenance and repair services for hybrid and electric vehicles from all the leading brands, including Nissan, BMW, Ford, Kia, Toyota, and Honda. No matter what you drive, you can trust our team to fully diagnose, maintain, and repair all its basic and high-tech systems.

If you want your car to stay in good condition, regular hybrid and EV maintenance is a must. How often you need to bring your car in for regular check-ups depends on the factory recommendations from your carmaker.
Many service intervals for hybrid and electric vehicles differ from internal combustion cars. For example, you won’t have to service your regenerative braking systems as often as with mechanical brakes. But your car’s electric motors and charging systems will require more frequent inspections and occasional software updates.
However, electric and hybrid vehicles still need the same level of steering and suspension services. And it’s always important to keep a close eye on the condition of your tires. So, while your EV won’t need oil changes, it’s best to visit our shop several times a year for digital vehicle inspections.
During those visits, we’ll let you know what maintenance services are due and share any issues our techs find while looking over your car. We can also provide a personalized maintenance schedule if you want to schedule your visits more precisely.
