Same story as me. I checked the comparison sites, the other big insurers. Best quotes were in the region of £500, compared to £365 last year. I felt that was somewhat rediculous; the only year where my insurance has been more than £500 was my first year of driving.Just had a customer today quoted £520 by his current insurer for a Leaf Tekna.
PlugInsure got him insured in 10 minutes for less than half the price!
Bump...Hi @pluginsure, please can you explain the reluctance of insurers to quote for younger drivers on EVs? It seems crazy that the next generation of drivers are being forced into ICE cars because they can't get cover in EV. I looked on your site and 25 is the youngest age in the drop downs. We'd love to have our older kids driving the Zoe, but can't get them on. Are the costs / risks really so much higher? I'd love my daughter to be able to drive EV from when she starts driving this year and never need to consider having to own an ICE. Thanks
I tried to get a quote online for a MINI PHEV but they list BEVs / REXs so I phoned them and he said he would give it a go and surprised himself by coming up with a competitive quote from LV=.Volvo V60 plug in isn't on the list.
