Fixing an electric vehicle can require a great deal of skill and expertise. A good dose of practical experience is also good to have, if you want your electrician to find the right solution faster. But how much experience does a skilled electrician need, so they could be considered “adequate” for dealing with modern EV issues.
Experience is a must in many fields, but when it comes to EV repair, it’s of paramount importance. You might own an EV that’s very expensive, or you could have one that is extremely complex and has an electronic system that’s hard to troubleshoot and even harder to repair. If that’s the case, then you might not get far without an experienced electrician who knows how to tackle the issue and where to look.
A good EV electrician Denver has will have at least 5-10 years of practical experience in the field. Although electric vehicles have been around much longer than that, the technology is already light years away compared to where it’s been 10 years ago, so there’s really no point in going much farther back than that in terms of practical experience.
However, depending on the brand and the age of your vehicle, it might be relevant to have practical knowledge of systems developed 5-10 years ago, since similar (or even the same) components or circuits might be present in your car. If they’re old enough, an electrician that doesn’t have much experience will hardly even be able to recognize them.
