Electric Black Cab Insurance

Electric Black Cab Insurance

Plan Insurance Brokers can offer cover for electric vehicles, like the LEVC Electric TX and the new Nissan Dynamo, without a major change to the premium from a TX4, for example.

Some insurers are wary of offering cover for electric vehicles. This is largely due to the greater potential for higher claims resulting from unforeseen issues with the new technology.

At Plan, we’re pleased to report that our insurer partners want to support the taxi drivers who choose to transition to electric, and are not put off by these considerations.

Plan clients can benefit from:

  • Accident management services
  • Public Liability
  • Loss of keys and replacement locks if lost or stolen up to £500
  • Personal Accident cover

Electric Black Cab insurance is specifically designed for drivers who would like to buy or upgrade their taxi to electric.

How much will Electric Black Cab insurance cost?

If you already drive a newer TX4 or Vito, you shouldn’t notice too much of a difference. We anticipate it will be approximately 5-10%.
If you currently drive an older model, such as a TX2, there will be a small increase due to the higher vehicle value.

Is the panoramic sunroof on the TXE covered?

Our insurers will cover the panoramic glass roof in the event of an accident.

However, it will be subject to normal claims procedures rather than treated as a windscreen claim.

What cover does a Plan Insurance Black Cab policy provide?

An Electric Black Cab Insurance can typically be arranged with supplementary products to include optional covers for:
