The continued increase in sales of Electric & Hybrid Vehicles over the last few years means that garages have had to invest in re-training their mechanics in new methods and techniques when it comes to servicing these new vehicles. Knightsbridge Garage have done this and sent our technicians on the newest and most up-to-date courses for both now and the future.
Many manufacturers of electric & hybrid vehicles recommend servicing your vehicle every 12 to 24 months. Although most electric vehicles do not have engine oil and filters to replace, there are still vital components such as tyres, brakes, high-voltage cables, wiring and battery packs are routinely inspected for safe operation.
We have 2 electric vehicle charging points on site.
