What do you guys think insurance will be for the Model 3? Can anyone share what they are paying for a Model S or X in California?

i think a lot of insurance providers have rates for Model 3 now. i dont think Model S/X rate would be even close(its quite expensive)

Does anyone get gap insurance? GEICO seems to give a pretty good quote, about $100 a month, but they don't offer gap insurance.

My Model S P85DL USAA policy costs no more proportionally than my Prius policy, so I don't see why the Model 3 should carry a big premium. This is especially true because much of the 3's bodywork is steel, not aluminum.

How do you know that? People at the delivery event took magnets to the car and said the bodywork is all aluminum. So if there is steel it is in the frame not the body. (Which is probably how they got it so light.)
