We insure our EV through YOUI. They give a great competitive rate. Also offer roadside service as part of the policy. If you have a newer EV like us, not available in Australia, the actuaries at YOUI can assist with that as well.
Check for updates every couple of days on twitter @EV4ME2. The next video will go up in about a month. We only put up a video, when something big changes, or if we have a useful quick tip.
