Electric Vehicle Care

Electric vehicles offer all kinds of benefits – specifically, different and fewer scheduled service needs. In turn, this means potentially lower scheduled maintenance costs.* For example, with an F-150 Lightning – you might spend roughly 40% less, on average, for vehicle maintenance than you would with its gas-powered counterpart over five years or 75,000 miles (whichever comes first).


Activate your vehicle modem** and your FordPass® account to get maintenance and service notifications through your vehicle or through the FordPass App. Regular maintenance checks can also optimize vehicle performance:

  • Maintain a charged EV battery, don't let it run down
  • Maintain brake, transmission and washer fluid levels
  • Make sure all interior and exterior lights are working
  • Check your tires (including your spare) for wear and pressure
  • Check your 12V battery connections for corrosion


Find a complete list of general and scheduled maintenance in your Owner’s Manual and schedule service at your preferred Ford EV-certified Dealer.
