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. Also, note that bundled policies such as home and auto will not be comparable since additional discounts are included when a customer purchases multiple insurance policies from a single company.
Tesla Insurance also provides multi-vehicle discounts and the ability to include additional drivers.
