I-CAR Adds Hybrid, Electric Search Feature to Repairability Technical Support Portal
Jan. 23, 2015—I-CAR announced on Thursday the launch of its new Hybrid and Electric Vehicle Disable Search on the I-CAR Repairability Technical Support (RTS) Portal as part of its effort to build a hub of industry information for collision repair professionals.
In the Hybrid and Electric Vehicle Disable Search, repair professionals will find information on how to identify where parts of the hybrid and electric systems are located, how to disable a system before beginning a repair, welding best practices, and refinish precautions. All this information can quickly be found by make, model and year.
For more detailed information on how to safely approach hybrid and electric vehicles after a collision, and how to understand the risks and risk-avoidance of working around alternative fuel vehicles, technicians can choose from live and online training options from the I-CAR Professional Development Program.
