How should I compare Tesla Insurance to my previous policy?
Not all insurance plans are created equal, and there are different levels of coverage depending on the needs and personal situation of each customer. When comparing your Tesla Insurance rate to your previous policy, be sure to look at the terms of each policy to check if they’re the same. If they’re not the same or if you have questions, call us at 1-844-34-TESLA to speak to a licensed agent.
It is also important to note that the online quote provided by Tesla Insurance is for a single vehicle and will not be comparable to insurance bundle pricing, which includes additional discounts for adding another driver, having multiple cars, or even including a home.

Customers should call the number listed in their Tesla Account and speak to licensed agent to understand further.
