Electric cars differ greatly from their fuel-based counterparts on a mechanical standpoint. Notably, since most of an electric vehicle’s parts run on batteries, each component is highly modular and can be easily swapped when needed. Such a feature allows motorists to purchase spare parts for a GEM electric car that they own and perform simple replacements without the need for professional help.
Since electric cars don’t rely on combustion to generate energy, they don’t suffer from problems that typically plague gas-using automobiles, such as oil leaks, blown gaskets, overheating, and so on. They’re relatively maintenance-free, although that doesn’t mean they won’t break down. Over time, components such as the car’s body, brakes, and even the main battery itself need to be replaced due to wear and tear.
