Our mission is to help you find a certified garage for the maintenance of electric and hybrid vehicles and to build a community of electric vehicle specialists.

Why Plug-in Garages

Plug-in Garages is a program that aims to inform and educate on the maintenance of electric vehicles. The objective is to facilitate the link between the owner of an EV and certified mechanical workshops trained to work on this type of vehicle.

For the electromobilist

Tips for maintaining your EV

It is well known that the only way to keep a vehicle in good condition and retain its resale value is through proper maintenance.

Contrary to popular belief, it is no different for an electric car.

Although the 100% electric car does not have a gasoline engine and components such as spark plugs, belt, exhaust, it also needs maintenance. Just like the internal combustion engine car, these cars have shocks, brakes, tires, oils and much more.

In addition, due to the generally heavier weight caused by the batteries, these parts are sometimes more stressed and therefore require more regular maintenance.

On this website, you will discover the most common interviews on electric, hybrid and plug-in hybrid vehicles.
