Preventive Maintenance

Electric Vehicle Maintenance

Textron engineers continuously review maintenance recommendations to optimize the performance, reliability, durability, safety and resell value of your Textron vehicle.

Unlike gasoline cars, Textron electric vehicles require no traditional oil changes, fuel filters, spark plug replacements or emission checks. However, electric vehicles are still highly complex machines that require regularly scheduled maintenance.

Please check your Owner’s Manual for latest maintenance recommendations for your Textron electric vehicle. Dixielectricar recommends at least 2 services per year with regular consumer usage. Commercial & Rental customers should consider one of our structured maintenance plans.

Battery Equalization

Equalizing lead acid batteries is a process designed to de-sulphate the battery plates by carrying out a controlled overcharge. It also causes the electrolyte to bubble and in wet cell batteries this mixes up the acid and distributes it evenly throughout the cell. Most importantly, it keeps the batteries evenly balanced which can improve the batteries lifespan.

Battery manufacturers suggest the equalization charge needs to be carried out at least twice a year or as necessary. Dixielectricar recommends an equalization charge during your scheduled maintenance service.
