“I bought an electric car, and I want to insure it. What should I pay attention to?”An electric car depends on batteries. This is the only way to get from A to B. And batteries are expensive, so choose an insurance policy where you can fall back on if something breaks down.
Unfortunately, the insurance premium for an electric car is higher compared to cars that have a petrol or diesel engine. This is due to the higher purchase price and the repair costs that can sometimes be higher due to the more expensive battery.
Because of the high repair costs, it is therefore smart to choose an all-risk insurance policy. Some insurers require that a recognized track & trace system be installed in the car. To check whether an insurer also allows electric cars, you can use this license plate check. Some insurers encourage the use of electric cars and give a discount on the premium. Even if the premium is higher, you ultimately save a lot more on fuel costs.
Charge your car at public locations
If you drive an EV, you want to charge it anywhere you go. E-Flux has mobility cards which can be used at public charging stations. We have a fixed subscription for €2,95 a month (incl.

Next to the costs you pay to use the card you also pay for the used electricity. We will invoice you on a monthly base.
