At Glen Cove Towing Service, we are committed to staying ahead of the curve and providing towing solutions for all vehicle types of electric vehicles. With the rise of electric vehicles (EVs) on the roads, we proudly offer specialized towing services tailored to the unique needs of electric car owners.
Electric Vehicle Towing Expertise:
As the automotive landscape changes we are ready to help you. Our team is well-equipped and trained to handle the towing needs of all electric vehicle brands. Some of the prominent electric car manufacturers we cater to include:
BMW (i3, iX3)
Hyundai (Kona Electric, Ioniq Electric)
The Electric Advantage:
Towing electric vehicles is different than towing gas or diesel cars and trucks.
1. Safety Precautions: Electric vehicles come with high-voltage systems, requiring additional safety precautions during towing. Our towing professionals are trained to handle EVs safely, ensuring the protection of both the vehicle and our team.
2. Specialized Equipment: Glen Cove Towing Service has invested in state-of-the-art equipment designed to safely tow electric vehicles. This includes specialized flatbed trucks equipped with secure harnessing mechanisms to prevent any damage to the EV's sensitive components. These flatbed towing vehicles also helps transport the vehicle safely keeping in mind the ground clearance for each vehicle.
3. Battery Considerations: Unlike gas or diesel vehicles, EVs rely on batteries for power. Our towing process takes into account the weight distribution and delicate nature of EV batteries, ensuring a secure and damage-free transport.
4. Regenerative Braking Awareness: Electric vehicles often utilize regenerative braking systems that may be impacted during towing. Our experienced operators understand these systems and take necessary precautions to prevent any potential issues. Because of this system, an electric vehicle shouldn’t be towed by a traditional wheel lift tow truck, it should only be done with a flatbed tow truck.
5. Software Integration: Some electric vehicles require specific protocols for towing, including putting the vehicle into tow mode or following manufacturer guidelines. Our team is well-versed in these procedures to ensure a smooth towing experience.
At Glen Cove Towing we understand the unique challenges associated with EV towing and strive to offer reliable, efficient, and safe services that cater specifically to the needs of electric car enthusiasts.
