The first all-electric Volkswagen, dubbed the Elektro Transporter, began testing in 1972, with a range of 43.5 miles, a top speed of 43.5 miles per hour and could fully charge in 10 hours from a conventional home plug point.

Volkswagen continued developing the Elektro Transporter, building as many as 70 versions between 1973 and 1975. Two short years later, it went on sale to the public and 20 were sold under the memorable slogan: “Zero litres per 100 kilometres!

What’s different about an electric service?

When you bring your electric vehicle in for a service, we check for all the usual service items legal requirements, such as wear on the braking system, your headlights, suspension, and tyre condition.

But your electric car service will also include the following checks:

  • High-voltage battery: we check the charge level and recharge if necessary

  • High-voltage components and high-voltage cables: we inspect these for damage and correct routing and securing of lines

Unlike petrol and diesel vehicles, electric vehicles don't need an oil change - because there's no oil to change! This can also save you money.
