Alex Kindred, car insurance expert at Confused.com, comments: “With electric vehicles becoming more popular across the world, understanding what type of insurance you need is important. You might be able to cover your electric car on a standard car insurance policy, but this isn’t always the best move. Dedicated electric car policies often come with a range of benefits, like cover for your charging cable, free recovery to the nearest charge point if you run out of battery power, and accidental damage, fire, and theft cover for your battery. These benefits could really make all the difference. 

“As the battery is an expensive component of the car, some manufacturers have offered the chance to lease it instead of buying outright. This is not common for new cars today, but is something to be aware of, particularly if you are considering a used electric vehicle. Be sure to let your insurer know if it’s leased, so they can pay the right party for any damage to the battery if you do happen to make a claim.”
