With electric vehicle car registrations increasing significantly its becoming more and more important to gear up your workshop up for the servicing of Electric Vehicles. According to SMMT report 190,727 new BEVs joined Britain’s roads, along with 114,554 plug-in hybrids (PHEVs), meaning 18.5 per cent of all new cars registered in 2021 can be plugged in. But what does this mean for car servicing? What equipment do car garages need to service EVs effectively? The 2-Post lift is one of the crucial pieces of equipment in any garage, but very few 2-Post lifts meet the requirements of a mechanic needing to service an Electrical vehicle. This is due to the position at which the lift holds the car in the air, which can restrict access to the battery.
