Re: 2018 LEAF Vs Tesla Model 3 SR: A Comparison Table for the USA

Can any former or current Leaf drivers who also are current model 3 drivers comment on the difference in their auto insurance costs?

I currently insure LEAF, Toyota Prius Prime, and a Tesla Model 3 LR. The premiums for each sub-category of liability insurance are almost the same cost for each car but I choose to take out liability only on the LEAF; to also add comp to the Prime; and to also add comp & collision to the Tesla.

Leaf $100, Toyota RAV4 EV $65, Tesla Model S $100

Have the RAV4 EV and Tesla now, both are 2013.

The Leaf was a 2011 model owned in 2014-2016.

I have three cars currently insured for $215 a month. I'm 39 and have a good driving record.

It's pointless to ask anyone what they pay for insurance to compare. Carries, zip codes, multi discounts. coverage levels, etc are all different. Meaningless. Just call your carrier and ask for the car you wont with same coverages you have- easy and better. It's like saying "how much does it cost to install a 240V outlet in my garage".

But quite helpful to get lots of samples across the country from people who live in the same home, who have had the Leaf and the Model 3. Presumably they have similar levels of coverage. A sufficient sampling size takes care of outliers.
