    Anyone know if any insurance companies are offering discounts specifically for having Autopilot installed?

    When I was shopping for insurance the big distinction was performance versus regular Tesla Model S.
    They charge more for the performance model.
    To make sure that I maximized my savings I went through all the safety gear on the Tesla Model S to get discounts towards insurance price.
    Some of the insurance agents just don't know about the Tesla model S.

    Airbags

    Security Alarm system

    Emergency braking system to avoid vehicle crash

    Collision warning system to void vehicle crash

    Multiple ultrasonic sensors and cameras Autopilot system to avoid vehicle crashes

    They did ask if the car had OnStar that would offer additional savings. I don't think Tesla has the OnStar Equivalent like Toyota has
    "Toyota Safety Connect".

    This is all I can remember from the conversations. You may want to ask them if there any other categories for discounts and see if the Tesla fits in those categories.

    I was curious if anyone has told a company this and they have said "Oh great, that get's you a 5% discount on your premium".
