Not until I got home did I realize another unusual aspect of electic vehicles: they're clean. Not just in the sense of being good for the environment but in the sense of not getting your hands greasy. The whole shop looked more like an electronics shop than an auto shop. Everything was spotless, everyone's clothes were clean, there were none of the usual auto shop odors. A little illustration of this is that while they were working on my car the brake rotors were covered by a rag. I assumed that was to protect the expensive rotors from accidents. But no, it was there to protect the workers' clothes from one of the few places where there's actually a bit of exposed grease. :-)
