Pay more auto insurance for your green SUV
« on: May 28, 2020, 09:19:03 AM »


This came across in my risk management feeds this morning.  I suspect that if you have one of these cars, your auto insurance will likely go up.  I have read elsewhere that this also applies to Teslas, since there are relatively few body shops certified to work on Teslas, there are almost no aftermarket body repair parts, and it can take quite a while to get OEM parts from Tesla since there are almost no junked Teslas from which to harvest parts.

You are one lousy risk manager.

I was worried that my wife's olive drab Escape was going to result in pricier insurance for a moment there.

Sometimes we carry more weight then we owe.
And sometimes goes on and on and on.

And electric/hybrid cars are expensive to work on.  All of those specialty parts that aren't used on other cars.

Insurance companies use complex formulas to determine rates. The biggest factor is risk of injury and vehicle repair and replacement cost is actually a minor consideration. Occupant safety and potential medical costs or death are the big ticket factors. They also use things like credit score and driving history to profile the drivers for risk. Where you live and drive also matters
What we have here is failure to communicate.
