Owners of electric vehicles (EVs) must ensure they have sufficient electric vehicle insurance coverage as EVs become more prevalent in India. Due to these vehicles’ distinctive characteristics and components, EV insurance requires particular considerations. Here are the top five recommendations for EV insurance in India.
An electric vehicle’s battery is its lifeblood, and it accounts for a sizeable portion of the cost of the car. Ensure the pricey battery pack is covered by your insurance to protect against unforeseen repair or replacement costs in the event of damage, theft, or loss. To ensure adequate protection, carefully read the terms and conditions.
Network Of Specialised Repairs
Pick an insurance company with connections to a network of specialised repair shops that can handle EV-specific repairs. Your vehicle will receive the ideal care possible if you can access a qualified network, reducing downtime and guaranteeing high-quality maintenance.
Calculate The Insured Value
Determine the insured value of your electric vehicle with accuracy to ensure comprehensive coverage. Consider things like the battery’s cost, the price of the car, and any extras or modifications you’ve made. You can make sure you have sufficient protection against theft or total loss by determining the total value of your EV. It would help to periodically reevaluate the insured value as the car’s value decreases.
Protection For Charging Devices
Check your electric bike insurance policy to see if it covers any damage, theft, or liability issues if you have purchased a dedicated charging station or other charging equipment for your electric vehicle. Check the scope of coverage to make sure it meets your needs. Claims are subject to terms and conditions set forth under the motor insurance policy. *
Cover For Personal Accidents
Verify that the driver and passengers of the electric vehicle are covered for personal accidents under your insurance policy. Verify that the policy provides sufficient protection and, if necessary, take additional coverage into account. Claims are subject to terms and conditions set forth under the motor insurance policy. *
Ask the insurance provider if it offers a No Claim Bonus (NCB) for electric vehicles, which lowers the premium for each year without a claim. Claims are subject to terms and conditions set forth under the motor insurance policy. ## *
Verify that your electric vehicle insurance policy covers third-party liability. This coverage may shield you from monetary and legal obligations in an accident involving a different vehicle or piece of property. It is a requirement that all cars on Indian roads must meet.
A few states or federal programmes may provide unique advantages or reductions on commercial electric vehicle insurance premiums for EVs. Please make use of them to lower your insurance costs. ##
