    Hi

    I have read on these forums that specialist insurance is available for Tesla cars via Direct Line / LV etc
    However for the model 3, the various comparison websites are still not showing the model 3 as a selectable vehicle.
    I phoned Direct Line's Tesla number (as posted elsewhere on the forums) and received a quote of £924.
    This strikes me as being quite steep given that both my wife and I are in our 40s.
    Has anyone else tried to obtain a quote for a UK RHD model 3 yet?

    Many thanks

    Hi
    I have been on one of the comparison sites and found a left hand drive performance model 3 and managed to get a quote for £560. As the model 3 delivery could start in June I presume the comparison sites will be updated accordingly. I have ordered a long range awd and am hoping that the insurance will be less than £500.

    Hi I’ve been given several prices from Direct Line. First was for a comparable price based on Model S 90D for a M3P that was approximately £750, thought that was OK as it’s a company car. A few weeks ago rang again and the M3 was now on their system and that had increased to ~ £850 or I thought that what they said. Back from holiday to find a quote in the post for just short of £1,100. I’m 65, have full NCD and already have two cars with them. Somethings not right.
