Hybrid battery Pre purchase visual inspection

For most Toyota hybrid vehicles where applicable I will carry out a visual inspection of the hybrid battery pack, checking for corrosion and the module (cells) connections and advise of future maintenance.

Hybrid battery pack inspection adds approximately 30 minutes to our checks, removing seats, interior trim, covers, de-energizing hybrid system etc. 

Direct high voltage battery pack connection

We are the only mobile inspection company that can carry out high voltage pack back direct connection to further asses the battery pack, due to time and in some instances numerous interior components such as plastic covers, seats etc this test is limited.

We can carry the most advanced high voltage battery pack inspection in Nz using 1 or both of our state of the art Ev/Hybrid specific scan tools for true battery pack health analysis.

NZ’s first EV and Hybrid diagnostic intelligent scan tool has landed, unlike dealership specific scan tools which are only compatible for that make, this new tool covers 95% of the worlds manufactures.    
The EV and Hybrid revolution has started in NZ with approximately another 100 models being released world wide in 2023!
Incar is proud to be the first Automotive company to take pre purchase inspections into the future with investment in the latest technology this year exceeding $43k! only the best for my clients!
High voltage battery analysis without removing battery, we offer this for free with all electric and hybrid vehicle inspections via OBD port!   
We are currently working with the best car yards in my opinion in Auckland testing electric and hybrid vehicles, testing popular makes and models regarding direct high voltage connection for further battery analysis, as different vehicles will require components being removed and will be time consuming so detailed prices to come!   
Isolation of high voltage battery pack required, being a mobile service environment an location must be safe and dry, safety PPE and procedures need to be adhered to as high voltage components can cause fatal shock, explosions or fire.      
Vehicle coverage- Toyota, Tesla, Audi, BMW, Honda, VW, Nissan, Lexus, Hyundai, Kia, Skoda, Great Wall, Ford, GM, Mini, Renault, Geely, Emgrand, plus 16 more manufactures. excludes micro/mild/IMA assist systems.
