I was at my dealer today and happened to ask about servicing as could not find it anywhere online.
They mentioned that pricing for it has just been released to them and may not even be online yet.

year 2/20k miles - £250approx
Year 4/40k miles - 360approx
Year 6 - same as year 2
Year 8 - same as year 4

the extra cost at year 4 and 8 was apparently to do with some 12v better work needing done at those intervals.

here is hoping for some package deals too

Nice find. I suppose there will also be independent garages by that time dealing with EV servicing as well. I always had my Audi services outside of the dealer, much cheaper and OEM parts used, the car literally prints out what needs to be changed with part numbers. We’ll see.

Ah ok didn’t know that. Last few cars I’ve serviced with official garage and paid for itself in trade in value.
But if I keep this car long term I think going outside dealer may be the way forward

To be fair if those prices are right then they are very good prices and would be happy to get a main dealer stamp.

Yeah, those prices are on par with 3rd party garage pricing. For example, I just sold my Audi A4, all past services were done at a VW/Audi specialist garage like my Audi before it, £140 minor service, £190 major service, the buyer (Kia, in this case) who bought my car wasn’t surprised by this, and the trade price was still the same. They weren’t really even interested in the servicing history which is my car is fully digital, they can’t even see it. If you have your car on PCP who really cares about trade value unless you're keeping the car, most will be handing the car back anyway to get a new model. You are fully entitled to get servicing done anywhere you choose, choose wisely though :). That's all well saying that for ICE cars, EVs are new... I have not seen EV servicing so maybe the first round of services is best done by Kia, these prices are very good.

The 2 year and 4 year high prices are for Battery Coolant Change, nothing to do with 12v.

Kia used to do it at 10 years or 100k miles on the Niro but last year changed to a new Non Conductive Coolant that is more expensive and needs changing at 40k or 4 years now.

Thats why the 40k and 80k services jump in price

the dealer who sold me my EV6 repeatedly mentioned that missing the 24month/30000km service - and every 24/30k thereafter - terminates the warranty immediately.

You would be a loon to not get your pride and joy serviced 😀, not to mention the safety aspect of it all. Do EVs need an MOT after 3 years in the UK?
Yes the car will still need an MOT, they may not check the emissions but will check all the other items checked on an MOT.

Arnold Clarke offer a 3year services package for £299 so it maybe worth having i guess.

The only problem with taking a dealer package is that you are tied to that dealer. If you take a manufacturer package (if there is one for EV6) you can legally take your car anywhere you like, including non-Kia dealers!

HA!! That's nothing. My Mercedes gets a service every 10K Miles and they START at $1,250 each. For a glorified oil change.

When I've taken our Kia K5 in for service, I always go over each item they plan to do. I just have them remove stuff I can do myself. Wipers, engine/cabin air filters, etc. After all that stuff, the price drops in half. The stealerships charge about $80 for each air filter change. You can buy OEM filters online for $11-15 each. On the K5, it's supid simple and takes less than 5 minutes to do both.

Change your own cabin air filter. Let them mess with the fluids, especially brakes.

Every dealership is different. We have 4 years of free maintenance...sounds like a great sales tool but in reality, EVs don't require any maintenance. In 3 years with my Tesla, i've spent exactly $40 on air filters. Of course i've also spent on tires but thats same for every car.

The best part of owning an EV is the lack of maintenance. I'd be annoyed if I have to go to the dealer every 8k miles and pay them $20 to look at stuff. You can get tires rotated at Discount Tires for free.
