Charging Ahead: How do I maintain and service my BMW electric vehicle?

Welcome back to "Charging Ahead," our detailed blog series that takes you through every aspect of owning and enjoying a BMW electric vehicle. In previous episodes, we’ve discussed selecting, purchasing, and preparing for the arrival of your BMW EV. In this seventh episode, we’ll focus on maintaining and servicing your BMW electric vehicle to ensure it remains in peak condition. We’ll explore the benefits of having fewer moving parts and how to conveniently book service appointments using the My BMW App and our website.

Simplified Maintenance with Fewer Moving Parts

One of the standout advantages of owning a BMW electric vehicle is the reduced need for maintenance compared to traditional gasoline-powered cars. Here’s why:

  • Fewer Components: Electric vehicles (EVs) have fewer moving parts than internal combustion engine vehicles. Components such as spark plugs, fuel injectors, and exhaust systems are absent in EVs, which means fewer parts can wear out or require replacement.
  • No Oil Changes: EVs don’t need oil to lubricate an engine, eliminating the need for regular oil changes. This not only reduces maintenance costs but also contributes to a cleaner and more convenient ownership experience.
  • Reduced Wear and Tear: The regenerative braking system in BMW electric vehicles helps reduce wear on brake pads by using the electric motor to slow the vehicle and recharge the battery. This results in longer-lasting brake components and fewer replacements.

Booking Service with the My BMW App

Maintaining your BMW electric vehicle is made easy with the My BMW App. Here’s how you can use it to manage your service appointments:

  • Service Reminders: The app provides timely reminders for upcoming service appointments based on your vehicle’s usage and maintenance schedule. This ensures you never miss a crucial service check.
  • Booking Appointments: With just a few taps, you can book your service appointment directly through the My BMW App. Choose your preferred date and time, and even select the specific service tasks you need. The app also allows you to choose your preferred BMW service centre.
  • Service History: Keep track of all your past service appointments and maintenance records within the app. This helps you stay informed about your vehicle’s health and ensures you’re always up to date with its service history.
