Auto Body Repair on Electric Vehicles

Electric cars such as the Porsche Panamera Plug-In, Chevy Volt, Nissan Leaf and models from Tesla are becoming increasingly popular with today’s motorists. However, not every auto body shop can handle electric or hybrid cars. They either don’t have the knowledge or tools to fix them. At Colorworks Autobody Centers, we have a proven track record when it comes to these types of advanced electric cars.

With automobile collision repair, it may seem that most cars would take the same materials to fix. With more technologically-advanced cars and trucks, auto body shops need to constantly upgrade their equipment to ensure they can stay ahead of the curve.

Electric and hybrid cares have many benefits – the obvious one being lower fuel costs. There are also some trade offs which include a higher repair bill. We will walk you through the different aspects of electric cars so you can get your vehicle fixed quickly and efficiently.

The Cost of Electric Vehicle Collision Repair

One of the drawbacks of an electric or hybrid is that if you get into an accident, it could cost more than a gas-powered vehicle to get fixed. This is mainly because the battery can be easily damaged and can be expensive to replace. Also, electric and hybrid vehicles haven’t been around for as long as gas-powered vehicles. Thus harder to source some of the parts used in the repair. Newer parts can be purchased from the original manufacturer but if you’re looking for used parts, it can be harder to source.

If the panels near the battery are damaged and need to be serviced, then the battery will have to be de-energized and taken out which leads to additional labour and time. Even if the electric car is in a major accident, it could leak battery acid which is corrosive and can be dangerous. If this is the case, it could cause extensive damage to other parts of the car and may even mean that the entire vehicle would have to be replaced.

Luxury Electric Cars

The Tesla Model 3 has become the best-selling electric vehicle of all time, but its blend of steel and aluminum construction also means that, like its electrical counterparts, it can be more expensive to repair. Even minor damage can easily cost thousands of dollars. At Colorworks, we have years of experience dealing with all models of Tesla cars and other luxury electric vehicles. If you get an estimate from another auto body shop and it seems expensive, give us a call. If your luxury electric car only has minor damage and you’ve being quoted in the thousand-dollar range for a cosmetic touch up, try our express auto body shop which can fix your vehicle quickly and cheaper.

The Best Solution for an Electric and Hybrid Repair

At Colorworks we have technicians that have gone through specialized training to repair hybrid and electric vehicles. Because of the increased risk of electrocution, technicians need to understand how to repair electric cars.
