High-Performance Electric Car Insurance
Electric vehicles already have high torque, incredible acceleration and ever-developing technology, with many mainstream insurers perceiving them to be higher risk. However, Keith Michaels understands that each performance EV is different, and individually calculate risk, taking into account numerous other factors to save you money.
High-performance cars are owned by enthusiasts who truly care about the car they drive, and often take greater care of their cars than someone who simply drives to get from A to B. Performance EVs are no different, and Keith Michaels recognises that those who own such cars are highly likely to take great pride in their electric cars and really look after them.

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.
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.
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!
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
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!

Performance Electric Vehicle Insurance FAQs
Is it more expensive to insure a performance electric vehicle?
Without a specialist by your side, it can be. Claims costs following an accident can be far higher than standard cars resulting in many insurers unwilling to cover Performance Electric vehicles. With such a drive for performance EVs, mechanics across the country are having to develop a skillset for certain aspects of EV repairs, some parts are more expensive and especially for performance EVs, the current market offering is so small, each repair is somewhat of a learning curve.
Plus, some of the upcoming brands like Rimac, Polestar and other brands that are EV only, make the insurance harder to compare, so quotes are very bespoke.
What counts as a high-performance EV?
High-performance cars are often categorised by insurance groups, and anything over the middle of the scale, around 35 and up, could classify it as high performance.
However, electric vehicles tend to sit at the higher end of the scale anyway, as the initial cost is higher and they have a naturally higher torque, and associated repair costs.
Therefore, categorising performance EVs should come from comparative statistics, such as 0-60 times, top speed and similar specifications.
Are Teslas expensive to insure?
Teslas, in our experience, when compared to other EV-only brands, are more expensive to insure. The Tesla infrastructure and EV design means that parts can only come from Tesla themselves, making the wait and supply to independent garages much longer.
This also makes the parts more expensive as there is only one location to obtain them from, which reduces competitiveness in the parts market. All of these have an effect on the insurance, and makes high street insurers wary of Tesla, which is why Keith Michaels provides specialist Tesla insurance.
