Do electric vans break down more often?
There is no evidence to suggest that an electric van will breakdown more frequently than its combustion engine counterpart.
An electric van is actually made of less moving parts than an ICE alternative, which can result in less maintenance – making it more cost-effective over its lifetime. You also won’t need to worry about bits like replacing the clutch or topping up engine oil.
However, general parts like tyres and windscreen wipers still need to be replaced when worn out, and the electric battery will need to be maintained.
