Electric Car Insurance from Keith Michaels
We all know that the electric vehicle sector is growing rapidly because we see and hear about new models every month. Did you know that there were only 60 plug-in electric models available in Europe at the end of 2019? Yet by 2021, it’s projected that there will be over 200 to choose from.
A year or two ago the choice of EVs was very limited; it had to be a small city car, a small family car or an exotic, expensive sports cars with nothing in between. Things have changed very quickly, and we already have a greater choice that now includes superminis, large family cars, hatchbacks, estates, SUVs, executive models, and some very fast machinery.

A human voice answered the phone straight away and gave me a competitive quote quickly and efficiently, which I accepted. Confirmation processed quickly too. Efficient use of their time and mine.I am a new customer so time will tell whether I remain satisfied!
Honest guys. Very straight forward.
Can never fault these guys. Renewed for the 3rd year running as they've great price and amazing customer service!
Excellent service, after returning to UK after a long period away, they took care of my insurance needs in a very professional and efficient manner as well as being very competitively priced.
As an expat with a home in the UK it was great to find a broker who had insurance companies on the books who were willing to recognise No Claims gained in the EU
I've been insuring with Keith Michaels for quite a few years now & have been very satisfied with the service. They have been very helpful & give a very personal service. Even after shopping around each time, (as we are all told to do!) Keith Michaels prices are still very competitive & hard to beat.
Effortless process and wonderful service. Their tailored expat products take all the heat out of something that other insurance companies seem to want to over complicate. Cannot recommend highly enough.
Spoke to a helpful Chap called Matt Moody (great name by the way), who was anything but what his name suggests. He was patient with me and found me a really competitive quote. Would recommend!

Electric & Hybrid Car Insurance FAQs
Is electric car insurance cheaper?
There is something of a misconception that electric car insurance premiums are more expensive than petrol or diesel cars. However, this misconception likely stems from many years ago when insurers had no historic data to work with when it came to repair costs. This meant lots of insurers were cautious in their estimations, raising premiums or even declining to insure electric cars.
However, now that electric vehicles are more common and more data is available, premiums are lower. For a competitive quote though, you are best contacting a broker who focuses on specialist vehicles.
What are the benefits of hybrid and electric vehicles?
There are many advantages for choosing an electric or hybrid car. If you’re London-based, your cars are not subject to the Congestion Charge, hybrid and electric cars are cheaper to run because petrol costs more than electricity, and hybrid and electric cars are also cheaper to tax.
Are there any downsides to electric and hybrid vehicles?
The downside to hybrid and electric cars is that they can be expensive on initial purchase. A plug-in hybrid version of a conventional car is often several thousand pounds more expensive. This cost is justified by how expensive green technology is to develop.
