Developing standalone, EV-specific insurance coverage is becoming a more popular trend among top insurers in the EV market.
This development is justifiable given the additional challenges posed by the charging infrastructure and the disparate technology backgrounds of the cars. The insurance sector needs to make sure it keeps up with the evolving auto industry.
Insurers are in a race against time to perfect this work as the popularity of EVs rises, but it is currently difficult to understand and price the risk profile of these new vehicles without decades of data and experience.
High claims costs for EVs are caused by battery prices, complex in-vehicle technology, and immature but still restrictive supply chains; but, over time, lowering prices and maturing repair networks will balance these issues.
The US EV Insurance Market accounted for $XX Billion in 2021 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2026, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2022 to 2027.
Real-time driver data insurance has now been made available in Colorado, Oregon, and Virginia by Tesla’s expanding insurance business.
Currently, there are seven states where auto insurance is offered. Tesla Insurance is also offered in California, although owing to state rules, there is no real-time driver safety data available.
There is a tonne of room for technology companies to undercut traditional insurers with their affordable solutions, as demonstrated by Tesla’s own insurance business, which offers vehicle coverage by analysing real-time driving data to determine accident risk.
Additionally, by urging the insurance sector to improve its own data-led underwriting, the insurtech has already demonstrated its potential as a significant competitor in the market.
An expanded line of vehicle protection solutions for owners of electric vehicles (EVs) has been launched, according to Zurich North America.
The packages offer coverage for electric cars, including roadside assistance for recharging EV batteries that run out of power in the middle of a journey as well as the repair or replacement of rechargeable batteries.
Including Tesla, Rivian, and Polestar, the product line essentially covers every EV maker. With this service, car dealership clients may now provide a layer of insurance to purchasers of automobiles who are devoted to sustainability and are spending money on low-emission vehicles.
