Halfords to train mechanics in electric car maintenance

Car and cycling retailer, Halfords, is backing the electric car boom by having specially trained mechanics at its autocentres.

The Redditch-based company announced plans to train one mechanic at each of its 300 UK centres in electric and hybrid maintenance. 

Stefan Warhaftig, commercial director at Halfords Autocentres, said: "We want our technicians to be the very best in the business, with access to the latest training.

"This is a really exciting time for innovation in the automotive industry - we've hit a real milestone as electric and hybrid cars are becoming more and more popular and the introduction of driverless cars is just around the corner."
