How much will it cost to insure my green car?

I’m interested in getting an electric car to be more eco-conscious, and I found a good deal on a Kia Soul. How much will it cost to insure it?

Answer
Kia Souls are great cars, and it’s awesome that you’re looking for ways to be more eco-friendly.
Generally, green cars like electric or hybrids are more expensive to insure because their parts are harder to come by and need special repairs. Insurance companies will protect themselves from the extra cost and will raise the price of insurance.
On average Kia Souls have a monthly premium of $123. The average yearly premium is $1,480. However, there are also a lot of other factors that insurance companies consider when setting your rate, including:
  • Your age
  • Where you live
  • Your driving history
  • Marital status
  • Occupation
The good news is there are a variety of discounts for which you may qualify. You also may qualify for rebates for driving a green car.
