Protect your electric or plug-in hybrid car with insurance from KBC

Driving an electric car comes with a different set of risks than driving a fossil-fuel car, including damage to the charging station or the battery. All these risks require adequate insurance.

We’re here to support you in choosing more sustainable products. If you decide to insure your electric vehicle under our comprehensive policy, we’ll be pleased to give you a discount and an extended purchase price guarantee of up to 48 months.

Insurance for your electric car that has you covered

Our insurance protects your electric car even in the most unexpected situations. A few real-life examples in which KBC has provided compensation for claims:

  • ‘I drove off with the charging cable still connected to my car.’
  • ‘I accidentally ran over my charging cable and now the charging connector is broken.’

In addition, you can count on receiving generous compensation if your vehicle is declared a total loss or stolen:

  • Get the full amount you paid for a new fully electric car up to 48 months after purchasing it
  • Benefit from 24-month purchase price guarantee coverage for second-hand electric cars
     

Other useful information when looking to insure your electric car

Naturally, the price of a vehicle affects the insurance premium: the more expensive the vehicle, the higher the risk. That said, the premium is not determined based only on the price of the vehicle, but also on its power, and the driver’s age and place of residence.

Insurance for electric vehicles is no more expensive than for fossil-fuel vehicles. What’s more, since new vehicles are equipped with more safety features and driver-assistance systems than older ones, KBC also charges a lower premium for newer models.

No. Insurance for electric vehicles is no more expensive than for fossil-fuel vehicles. On the contrary. Because we want to encourage people to buy more environmentally friendly vehicles, you get 2 months’ free comprehensive insurance for your electric or plug-in hybrid vehicle*.

What’s more, since new vehicles are equipped with more safety features and driver-assistance systems than older ones, KBC charges a lower premium for newer models.

Problems that do still occasionally arise with electric vehicles are damage to the charging point itself or damage caused by a defect in the charging point. Many people rightly wonder whether they are insured for this. Damage to the charging point is included in your all risks comprehensive insurance and in most cases, damage caused by a defect in the charging point such as a short circuit is covered by KBC Home Insurance*.

I have been a customer at KBC for many years, so when I switched to an electric car a while ago, I didn’t have to think twice about taking out a comprehensive insurance policy with them. I just had to send the details of the new car and all the paperwork was taken care of for me. Not only that, I got two months’ cover thrown in for free.
