EVs can't go in the car wash (think 41% of Brits)

A recent article from DriveEV has shed some light on a common misconception about EVs - they can't get wet! Yes apparently 41% of Britons weren't sure if an electric vehicle was safe in a car wash! They are by the way. They're fine in a car wash, or even in the rain!

Is this a bad sign for the British adoption of EVs?

It just baffles me when people think this haha. But who the hell takes their car to a car wash? It's all about cleaning the car yourself and enjoying the great achievement of it being clean.

That's actually really funny. How on earth do people think we cope when it rains? Derh 😂😂😂

Hi @Tim_OVO I saw this article!

I also read recently that EV's are really cheap to service as they are made up of component sealed parts (which links back to them being able to go through a car wash!). Therefore if something is broken, its doesn't get repaired, just swapped out.

Anyone had experience of getting their EV serviced and how that went etc?
