FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What can I do to get optimal performance from my Chevy EV’s battery?

When charging your EV for typical day-to-day use, it’s best for overall performance if you charge to 80% or less. This helps the battery perform at an optimal level longer and optimizes regenerative braking performance, which is limited when battery charge is above 80%. You can set your EV’s maximum charge using either the available myChevy mobile app, or the in-vehicle display screen. Your service advisor at Chevrolet Certified Service is also a trusted advisor, schedule an appointment today.

How much maintenance is required for my Chevy EV?

EV’s do not require oil changes, transmission flushes, engine belt and air filter replacement or spark plugs. You still will want to keep up with tire rotations —recommended every 7,500 miles — and basic maintenance recommended for all vehicles such as new wipers, clean cabin filters and brake fluid around 5 years in.

If I need maintenance performed on my Chevy EV’s propulsion battery, where should I go?

The EV trained technicians at your local Certified Service Chevy dealership are the only experts that should be inspecting, testing, or replacing the high voltage battery. Schedule service at your local dealership and our trained EV technicians will be able to advise.

How are Certified Service-trained technicians different?

Chevrolet has been maintaining electric vehicle components for over 10 years. These automotive experts use only Genuine GM Parts & Accessories that are designed specifically for your Chevrolet. They're also tested for performance and reliability. For more details, please visit www.chevrolet.com/certified-service.html

How can I help increase the range of my Chevy EV?

Optimizing and maintaining your tire health can help your vehicle run more efficiently and meet the intended vehicle performance. Be sure to maintain properly inflated tires. Level of inflation may need adjusted as temperature changes. By rotating your tires, you can even out the wear to help get the most tread life from every tire. Tire rotations are recommended every 7,500 miles — for most people that’s twice a year.

How much does the first maintenance visit for my Chevy EV cost?

As a new Chevy owner/lessee your first routine maintenance is covered when you bring your Chevy EV into your local dealership for the first time. This includes a tire rotation and a Multi-Point Vehicle Inspection. The most important part of the first maintenance visit is the Multi-Point Vehicle Inspection. When completed by your Chevrolet dealership technician, this assessment of your vehicle’s health can give you a great picture of any current or future service needs.
