Because of the lockdown, many Germans drive less car than usual. This already had an impact on breakdown statistics in 2020, show data from the ADAC: Schlappe Batteries left many cars lying down. This also applies to electric cars – but differently than you think.
Almost every second breakdown, to which the "Yellow angel" had to move out of the ADAC, was due to a discharged or defective starter battery. This is shown by the current ADAC breakdown statistics that site is present. Around 3.4 million (2019: 3.8 million.) Sometimes the street watch and mobility partners of the ADAC were in the first "Corona year" On the way. So the number of missions has decreased, which can be explained by the bans on movement during the first lockdowns in Germany.
More battery breakdowns, fewer tire places
"Overall, the proportion of battery failures in all breakdown rose from 41.8 percent in the previous year to 46.3 percent. Reason: In these months in the lockdown, many vehicles were little or hardly moved. The opposite shows the tire breakdowns. These have decreased significantly in the Lockdown months", So the ADAC. Car batteries are loaded during the trip via the generator (alternator) of the car; If the car is too long, the batteries sometimes no longer have a juice.

Incidentally, defects in the starter battery were Even with electric cars in 54 percent of cases, the breakdown of the breakdown – And thus even more than with petrol or diesel vehicles. You have to know that every electric car has two batteries: a large battery, mostly with lithium-ion technology, as a traction battery, but also a normal 12 volt battery as a starter battery. There are several reasons for that. On the one hand, the circuit of the traction battery is only closed for driving, so that a starter battery is used to unlock the doors using a central locking and other functions. And if the e-car goes out entirely the juice for driving, the small battery ensures that things like light and warning indicators work for a while.

E-car technology rarely a breakdown reason
Defects on the actual battery, on the other hand, were rarely a problem with the electric car. According to ADAC, the problems were only in 4.4 percent of the trap "Electric car-specific", So were caused by the drive battery, the electric motor or the loading technique in the vehicle. Seen in this way, even e-cars are not free of breakdowns, but rarely because of their drive.However, the ADAC points out that this result is only an intermediate score and is not yet sufficient to assess the long-term suitability of the vehicles. "The stock of electric cars on German roads is currently much younger than that of conventional vehicles. The ADAC experts expect that wear and aging-related breakdowns of e-cars will increase in the next few years", So the automobile club.
