Whether you own an electric car or hybrid already, or you’re about to charge ahead into the next generation of driving, you may well be wondering how to protect your electric or hybrid car.

Here at AXA, we have car insurance policies to cover everything that goes into your new eco-friendly vehicle. So finding an insurance quote for your car is a smooth ride with our experienced team and round the clock support.

With the sale of pure diesel and petrol cars due to stop in 2030 in the UK, there’s no time like the present to transition to an electric vehicle or review your policy.

What’s covered with AXA Car Insurance for electric vehicles?

As electric cars have a whole host of unique features, you need a policy tailored to their needs.

To help you charge ahead, here are some of the features you can expect when you protect your partial hybrid, plug in or fully electric vehicle with AXA:

Battery cover

When you insure your electric vehicle or any type of hybrid with AXA car insurance, you can rest assured that the most important component of your new vehicle is covered with your policy.

Charging cable cover

Life is full of unexpected bumps in the road, so in case the worst happens, your charging cable is covered with your electric vehicle insurance in the event of theft or accidental breakage.

If you have a charging point fitted at home, this won’t be covered under your car insurance with AXA. However, you can get this covered with home insurance from AXA.

Cover for injury and damage caused by charging cables

Accidents happen, so if someone trips on a charging cable on the road or in a public place, or a faulty cable causes unexpected damage – you can rest assured that you’ll be covered with us for third party incidents.

Optional breakdown cover for electric vehicles

In case of any unexpected emergencies, you can also add optional breakdown cover to your policy, and we’ll get you to the nearest suitable charging station if your electric car runs out of charge.
