“Electric cars are reliable.”
Jake Fisher, the head of automotive testing for Consumer Reports
He added that electric vehicles are less complicated than their internal combustion engine or hybrid-vehicle counterparts.
EVs have fewer moving components
One advantage of electric cars is that they have fewer moving parts than gasoline-powered ones, making them less prone to mechanical issues.
The simplicity of the work electric motors do leads to less wear of components. They also can reduce the likelihood of breakdowns and the need for maintenance.
Interestingly, Consumer Reports’ Auto Reliability and Satisfaction survey results revealed that current EV owners are delighted. Survey respondents with EVs have a high satisfaction of 76%.
However, the respondents also stated reliability issues of EVs, claiming electric SUVs to be the least reliable car. It’s also worth noting that some electric car models have had manufacturing defects or design flaws, resulting in recalls and other quality control issues. The reliability of EVs opens up a space for improvement to convince new buyers of electric vehicles.
