The S and X threads contain numerous discussions about difficulty or high expense insuring these vehicles as well as repair problems. One of the issues is with new vehicles as insurers do not have a good track record to gauge the risk. In my opinion, if the Model 3 is going to be truly mass market, the auto insurance has to be similar to other cars in the "class." When people buy a new car like a Tesla, is insurance really even a factor or do they pay whatever they have to? Not good to have your gas savings plowed into higher insurance premiums (and by virtue of higher MSRP) registration fees. Is this even a valid concern? Any insurance people want to add some insight? also what can Tesla do to help mitigate problems?
