Do electric vehicles require less maintenance than gas vehicles?

Yes. Electric motors have far fewer moving parts compared to gas engines which have several. Gas engine parts tend to wear out over time and can be expensive to replace. Electric vehicles also do not require oil changes.

Because the 2019 Nissan LEAF doesn't have a traditional powertrain, it lacks a lot of the parts you'd find on a gas or diesel vehicle. There's no tailpipe, no transmission, and no gas engine. As such, a lot of services you're used to getting will become a thing of the past. You won't need to replace spark plugs or change your oil. And because there's no tailpipe emissions, you'll never have to get an emissions check. [[154]]
