ELECTRIC VEHICLES/HYBRID TECHNOLOGY
Almost all manufacturers now produce a Hybrid vehicle. These vehicles contain high voltage batteries, and have components which operate at up to 800V DC! This means the vehicle has more power than an electric chair – and failure to follow the correct procedures when disabling the high voltage system could cause injury or death.
In other European countries, it is now a legal requirement that you hold a qualification in Hybrid-Electric Vehicle Technology, to allow you to service and maintain these vehicles correctly and safely. We have trained technicians to handle these types of vehicles correctly, in accordance with the strict manufacturer procedures and health and safety guidelines.
Chartwell have invested in a number of onsite charge points, special tooling / training and safety systems to ensure all electric vehicle repairs are handled correctly following the strict guidelines laid down by the manufacturer.
