    Tesla vehicles do not have combustion engines so there is no oil to change. There is very little maintenance to be performed. The cabin air filter must be replaced very 2 years. Tires must be rotated, balanced, every 10,000 miles and car needs a regular alignment. Brake fluid needs to be tested for contamination every 2 years and replaced as necessary. A/C must be Serviced every 2 to 6 years depending on the model you buy. That is all the maintenance that is needed.

    Electric cars can still have a heat/coolant system for the main battery and a regular 12 volt car battery.

    Charging, tires, and brakes. I would assume it also needs some chassis lubrication periodically on the steering and front suspension parts.

    No oil changes because there's no engine to use oil. Tires, suspension and drivetrain get the same maintenance as any other car while batteries need extra attention

      The electric motor still needs lubrication.
