“Some car insurance may offer you a discount or reduced rate for driving an electric vehicle, but others may not. Each company is different, meaning it’s impossible to guarantee that you’ll pay less for coverage.
The only way to be sure you’ll receive a discount is to get quotes from various insurers with the vehicle identification number (VIN) of the car you want. Compare rates for the same level of coverage and go with the policy that makes the most financial sense to you.
