Electric and Hybrid Vehicles

If you’re an electric or hybrid car owner, you already know that the automotive industry is an exciting space. Right now, the pace for innovation has never been more rapid — and that technology drive is greatly influencing the future of new cars.

Now more than ever, we can see more and more electric cars on our streets. Upstart brands such as Tesla are leading the way, with the established likes of BMW, Hyundai, Mercedes-Benz and Porsche all following suit.

Meanwhile, you’ll be hard-pressed to find a manufacturer that doesn’t incorporate some level of hybrid car tech in their line-up. With car manufacturers taking the lead in environmental sustainability, the future of personal mobility has never been so diverse.

If you’re the owner of a hybrid or electric vehicle, you've experienced the countless benefits of driving a car with low emissions, greatly reduced vibration and noise and scintillating performance.

What you may not be aware of, however, is the strides manufacturers have made in both design and material choices, for these new alternative-fuel vehicles.

Accidents Can Still Happen, However

However, until driverless tech becomes mainstream, accidents can still happen, regardless of what powers your car. – that’s why it’s important to have premium car insurance. If you’re in need of a collision repair on a new hybrid or electric vehicle, it’s worth keeping in mind that returning these modern cars to showroom specification requires specialist care and attention.

For instance, modern hybrid cars and electric cars have certain limitations due to the nature of their heavy battery packs. To counter this, manufacturers employ a wide range of techniques to offset the added weight, including the extensive use of less-common materials (such as aluminum and carbon fibre in construction). These materials require expert precision in their repair, as unqualified attempts can result in disaster.

Other parts employed in the manufacturer of your electric or hybrid cars are highly specialized and operate within fine tolerance windows. Modern cars are designed with such precision that even a hair-width of deviance from OEM specs can spell long-term disaster. Now, more than ever, it pays to get your car professionally repaired — but finding the right shop can understandably prove to be tricky.
