We’ve worked hard to stay ahead of the curve in the collision repair industry and become a leader in the growing electric vehicle repair market. Our 21,000 sq. ft. Electric Vehicle Center allows us to store electric vehicles indoors, out of the cold and rain. The EV Center also has multiple 240v chargers to keep batteries in good condition during every step of the repair process. We invite you to virtually tour this facility to see for yourself what sets Artistic Auto Body apart from other electric vehicle repair shops.

Aluminum Repair

One aspect of repairing electric vehicles is that all aluminum repairs must take place in a “Clean Room.” Some electric vehicles, like the Tesla Model S or Model X, are virtually all aluminum, while others are a combination of steel and aluminum. This dedicated repair area is required to avoid cross-contamination with steel, which can cause corrosion on an aluminum car. Aluminum clean rooms are very expensive, and most aluminum certified shops only have one bay. Artistic Auto Body’s Tigard location currently has three aluminum bays so that we can repair multiple electric vehicles and other aluminum cars at the same time.

Discovery Appointments

We are pleased to offer what we call a Discovery Appointment, which is designed to shorten the length of repairs on damaged but safely drivable electric vehicles. Your electric vehicle comes to our Tigard EV Center for a pre-arranged, one-day appointment, and we take apart the damaged area, find all the hidden damage, and create a list of all the parts that will be required. Then we put the car back together and reset the computer functions, all in one day. This way, you may continue to drive your electric vehicle until all the parts arrive, at which point the repair time is reduced because there should be no waiting for parts. This is not only more convenient for you and for us, it also reduces rental car expense.

In addition, we have partnered with EcoDrive Rentals to offer our electric vehicle customers the convenient option of renting a Tesla for these Discovery Appointments directly from our Electric Vehicle Center.
