Eelectric car insurance in Northern Ireland – a straightforward guide
Is electric car insurance in Northern Ireland more expensive than insuring an electric or diesel car?
It used to be, but that’s not always the case anymore.
Electric cars historically cost more than your average diesel or petrol motor, and their parts were also a little harder to come by - two factors that served to push up the cost of electric car insurance.
However, as electric cars become increasingly popular the cost of insuring these vehicles is now largely on a par with their petrol and diesel counterparts, so other risk factors (like your age or your history of motoring convictions, for instance) are likely to have a bigger impact on your premium.
Does electric car insurance NI cover me if my car breaks down?
That depends on whether your electric car insurance policies includes breakdown cover as standard, or whether you had decided to include it as an add-on if it wasn’t included as standard.
It’s also possible to take out standalone [breakdown cover](https://www.compareni.com/insurance/breakdown.htm, so even if you didn’t take this type of insurance out when you were insuring your electric car you can still do so now.
