Electric cars have been out there for quite a number of years. Yes, they are expensive to repair, but so is a Mercedes V8 or V12 engine or an automatic transmission.sendler2112 wrote:What are people paying for insurance for the B class electric? I called my company (Progressive) for a quote with the VIN but they had no info on this new car. They called me back the next day with a quote of $1,120/ year which is very reasonable but they said this was based on a guess according to how much they would charge me for other Mercedes in the same price range. I would hate to lease the car for three years and then have them jack up the insurance 3x after they find out that to replace the battery or motor after a wreck will be $20,482 and $12,340. Something as simple as running over a cinder block in the road or hitting an animal could total both parts in one shot.
