Hi, would anyone have any information about insurance for the new Ioniq 38 kWh. I am with Aviva and they are struggling to provide a quote as they don't have any information.

Any information would be useful.

Thanks. P.

Not sure what they want, but they said they had to refer it to the highest level underwriter before accepting. Could i ask who you are with?

I ordered on the 25th September and the car has been ready for about 1 week. Should be here on 31st now as I wasn't ready to accept it.

That's strange as our 38kW is insured with Quote Me Happy who are owned by Aviva! ?

I read recently in the forum that LV had set out their stall to specialise in EV insurance with some kind of enhanced cover specifically designed to cover EV problems. Worth a check there?

We have just insured our 38kWh Ioniq with LV, it was the second cheapest option we could find using the screen scrapers like confused.com. I think as our car was so newly registered we had to fill in some extra details but there was no issue related to it being an Ioniq or EV vehicle. LV offers free recovery to a charge point if you run out of charge on a journey, no excess to pay.

I had a few issues insuring with Aviva too. I originally phoned them before the car arrived to check on the price. They informed me it would be slightly cheaper than my current car (a Mazda 6 1.8 petrol) They then said I just need to call just before delivery and change it over. Then when I phoned the day before delivery, they realised they had quoted me originally on the old 28kwh car, and the new one would be more! After a lot of toing and froing they agreed to do it at the same price, but they certainly seemed to have trouble quoting for the new one as it's so new. However, this was a week ago now so surprised you are having issues and they haven't updated their systems...
I was happy with the price though, it will be slightly more at renewal than the old one but probably only by a tenner or so.

I wouldn't insure anything with Aviva, a few years ago they took my details emailed me the cover note and paperwork and everything was fine until 4 months later I had a letter from a debt collection company demanding a few hundred pounds. Long story short, the direct debit failed, lots of money in the account so the guess was that they had written the account number wrong. Aviva decided to not bother informing me that the direct debit had failed and just cancelled the insurance, apparently they did this within a month of me taking out the insurance.

By not attempting to contact me by phone (home answer machine), or email or even by post they allowed me to drive around without any insurance for over three months. Naturally I complained, and did not pay the debt collection company. I WILL NEVER USE AVIVA AGAIN and I urge other not to, just think what could have happened in a crash - no insurance pay out for me or my car, no money to pay out to a potential third party left with live changing injuries, which at the end of the day is the reason why we have to have third party insurance.

That is bad. A few other things could of happened, police stop you and seize your car in the middle of a journey, and you would have to insure it and pay storage fees before collecting it plus the 8 points on your licence and fine.
