Electric Vehicles (EV) are gaining popularity in the millennial age with the increasing improvements to the look and feel as well as the technology behind these new types of vehicles. Automakers have introduced electric cars that run parallel to vehicles that were gasoline powered in all aspects ranging from luxury, comfort and modernized looks.
Owners of electric vehicles are very environmentally conscious, trying to reduce their carbon footprint every way they can. Right now there are not many insurance discounts for owning an electric vehicle, or installing a charging station at your home. This is about to change as two organizations have come together to reward electric vehicle owners for their environmentally friendly choice.
The Electric Vehicle Society (EVS) of Ontario has appointed Duliban Insurance Brokers to provide a custom group insurance for electric car owners in Ontario – savings of up to 35% on home and auto insurance. Duliban Insurance Brokers is one of the most trusted insurance brokers in Ontario, recognized for their signature ‘hometown service’. Being a family owned and operated business since 1976, they now have 5 offices which can serve all of Ontario by focusing on digital initiatives. They offer insurance for businesses, farms, homes, cars, and also tractors for residents of Ontario.
Who pays more for insurance: Gas vs Electric Cars
The program we have implemented provide significant savings for electric vehicles compared to similar priced gas models. We want to show people the possible savings you could get if you are looking to purchase an electric vehicle as your next car purchase. Most people know electric vehicles save you money from never having to purchase gas again but further savings can be found through insurance which everyone needs to pay to drive. This program is designed for all electric vehicle makes and models not just Tesla insurance. For a complete list of electric vehicles available see the MTO website.
Electric Vehicle Insurance Group Plan
Duliban Insurance Brokers can provide an insurance quote to all electric vehicle owners in Ontario with unique discounts of up to 35% in savings. In order to proceed with the quote provided, you require a membership to the Electric Vehicle Society of Ontario. While on the phone with the insurance professionals at Duliban, they will send you a link to sign up for the EVS, as they require the membership number to proceed with the policy binding.
