Drivers of electric vehicles could be paying an additional £231 million annual insurance bill for their vehicles according to our latest research which shows a disparity between EVs and traditional models.
The insurance group a car is allocated largely determines the cost of annual cover, with the vehicles in the lowest groups typically the cheapest insure.
Ranging from groups 1 to 50, every car on the market is assessed by the Group Rating Panel (members of the Association of British Insurers and the Lloyds Market Association). However, insurers can also use their own system to assess risk, too.
Despite driving with a mobile phone being illegal for 16 years, our newest survey reveals the very worrying finding that a sizeable number of Brits think there should be no penalty for those caught using a such a device while driving.

When asked what penalty should be imposed, including no penalty, a driving ban, penalty points or an on the spot fine, among other options, this is the level of support to educate bad drivers.
