How Much Does 2016 Mitsubishi i-MiEV Car Insurance Cost?

Want cheaper insurance coverage rates? Drivers have a choice when trying to find the best price on Mitsubishi i-MiEV insurance. They can either spend hours calling around to get rate comparisons or use the internet to get rate quotes.

There are both good and bad ways to shop for insurance coverage and you need to know the proper way to quote coverages for a Mitsubishi and find the lowest price either online or from local insurance agents.

How much is insurance coverage?

Lowering your 2016 Mitsubishi i-MiEV insurance coverage rates is actually quite simple. You just have to spend a little time to compare rate quotes to see which company has cheap insurance quotes. Comparing prices online can be done in a couple of different ways.

Experts agree that the best way to get quotes for comparison is an all-inclusive rate comparison (click to open form in new window). This form prevents you from having to do separate quote forms for every prospective company. Just one form will get you price quotes from multiple low-cost companies. It’s the fastest way to compare.

A harder way to compare rate quotes is to manually visit the website for every company you want to comare to complete a price quote. For examples sake, let’s assume you want to compare prices for GEICO, Progressive and Liberty Mutual. To get each rate you have to navigate to each company’s site and repeatedly enter your information, which is why the first method is quicker.

The least recommended way to comparison shop is actually driving to insurance agents’ offices. Quoting and buying insurance online can eliminate the need for a local agent unless you want the extra assistance of a local agency. Although, it is possible compare the best prices online but still have the advice of a local agent.

It’s up to you which method you use, but do your best to use equivalent coverage information for each quote you get. If you are comparing mixed coverages it’s not possible to determine the lowest rate for your Mitsubishi i-MiEV.

Discounts for cheap insurance rates

Insurance can cost an arm and a leg, but you might find some hidden discounts that you may not even know about. Certain discounts will be triggered automatically at quote time, but some discounts are required to be asked for before being credited.

  • Military Discounts – Being on active duty in the military can result in better insurance rates.
  • Discount for Multiple Policies – If you can bundle your homeowners and auto insurance with the same insurance company you could save 10% to 20% off each policy.
  • Employee of Federal Government – Active or retired federal employment can save as much as 8% for i-MiEV coverage with certain companies.
  • Claim Free – Claim-free drivers can earn big discounts compared to drivers who are more careless.
  • Student in College – Youth drivers living away from home attending college and leave their car at home may be insured at a cheaper rate.
  • Discount for Home Ownership – Owning a house may earn you a small savings because it means you have a higher level of financial diligence.
  • Life Insurance Discount – Not all insurance companies offer life insurance, but some may give you better insurancerates if you take out some life insurance too.

Don’t be surprised that most credits do not apply to the entire cost. Some only apply to individual premiums such as comp or med pay. Just because it seems like having all the discounts means you get insurance for free, companies wouldn’t make money that way.

Some of the larger companies that may offer policyholders these money-saving discounts include:

If you want affordable insurance quotes, ask each company which discounts you qualify for. Discounts might not apply everywhere. To find insurance companies offering insurance discounts, click this link.

Tailor your insurance coverage coverage to you

When buying the right insurance coverage, there isn’t really a perfect coverage plan. Coverage needs to be tailored to your specific needs.

For instance, these questions can aid in determining if your situation may require specific advice.

  • What can I do if my company denied a claim?
  • Should I drop comprehensive coverage on older vehicles?
  • Am I covered when driving someone else’s vehicle?
  • Should I bundle my homeowners policy with my auto?
  • What is UM/UIM insurance?
  • Is borrowed equipment or tools covered if stolen or damaged?
  • What is PIP insurance?

If you don’t know the answers to these questions but a few of them apply, you may need to chat with an insurance agent. If you want to speak to an agent in your area, fill out this quick form. It’s fast, free and can provide invaluable advice.

Parts of your insurance policy

Knowing the specifics of your insurance policy aids in choosing which coverages you need for your vehicles. The coverage terms in a policy can be ambiguous and nobody wants to actually read their policy.

Medical expense coverage

Personal Injury Protection (PIP) and medical payments coverage provide coverage for bills for hospital visits, rehabilitation expenses and pain medications. They can be utilized in addition to your health insurance policy or if there is no health insurance coverage. Medical payments and PIP cover you and your occupants in addition to any family member struck as a pedestrian. Personal Injury Protection is not universally available and gives slightly broader coverage than med pay

Comprehensive protection

Comprehensive insurance coverage covers damage that is not covered by collision coverage. You need to pay your deductible first then the remaining damage will be covered by your comprehensive coverage.

Comprehensive coverage protects against claims like theft, hitting a deer and a broken windshield. The most a insurance company will pay at claim time is the actual cash value, so if the vehicle is not worth much consider dropping full coverage.

Liability coverages

This coverage will cover damage that occurs to people or other property that is your fault. This insurance protects YOU from legal claims by others. It does not cover damage sustained by your vehicle in an accident.

It consists of three limits, bodily injury for each person injured, bodily injury for the entire accident and a property damage limit. Your policy might show liability limits of 100/300/100 which means a limit of $100,000 per injured person, a limit of $300,000 in injury protection per accident, and a total limit of $100,000 for damage to vehicles and property. Alternatively, you may have a combined limit which combines the three limits into one amount with no separate limits for injury or property damage.

Liability coverage protects against claims like pain and suffering, repair costs for stationary objects and medical services. The amount of liability coverage you purchase is a personal decision, but buy as much as you can afford.

Collision coverage protection

This coverage pays for damage to your i-MiEV resulting from a collision with another car or object. You have to pay a deductible then the remaining damage will be paid by your insurance company.

Collision insurance covers things like damaging your car on a curb, scraping a guard rail, colliding with another moving vehicle, backing into a parked car and crashing into a ditch. This coverage can be expensive, so consider removing coverage from older vehicles. Drivers also have the option to bump up the deductible to bring the cost down.

Uninsured or underinsured coverage

This protects you and your vehicle when other motorists are uninsured or don’t have enough coverage. Covered claims include injuries sustained by your vehicle’s occupants as well as damage to your 2016 Mitsubishi i-MiEV.

Since a lot of drivers only carry the minimum required liability limits, their limits can quickly be used up. That’s why carrying high Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage should not be overlooked. Frequently these limits are identical to your policy’s liability coverage.

More comparisons equals lower rates

Budget-friendly insurance coverage can be bought both online as well as from independent agents, and you need to price shop both in order to have the best chance of saving money. Some insurance providers do not provide online quoting and most of the time these regional insurance providers work with independent agents.

Insureds who switch companies do it for a variety of reasons including lack of trust in their agent, not issuing a premium refund, extreme rates for teen drivers and unfair underwriting practices. Whatever your reason, finding a great new company is easier than you think.

We covered many tips how you can save on 2016 Mitsubishi i-MiEV insurance. The most important thing to understand is the more times you quote, the better chance you’ll have of finding cheap insurance. You may even find the lowest priced insurance coverage comes from the least-expected company.
