[Oeva-list] Insurance?

I have a 1986 Chevy Sprint insured through Farmer's Insurance. This car has been electric since 1992. Farmer's also insured my electric 1988 Cushman Truckster registered as a Low Speed Vehicle until it was destroyed in my garage fire.

This is a stupid survey. Those who have trouble with insurance probably have a bad driving record. I had my 1976 Melex golf car insured through State Farm, which I drove on the street. I remember a concrete worker asking why I was driving a golf car, he said "Yew lost yer license, dint chya!!"

Well, since you put it that way...let's just do a little survey...<br> <br> Who here has an EV and is it insured and through whom is it insured?<br> <br> (That will satisfy my concern..anything short is still just rumor.)<br> <br> <br><br><b><i>Myles Twete <matwete at comcast.net></i></b> wrote:<blockquote class="replbq" style="border-left: 2px solid rgb(16, 16, 255); margin-left: 5px; padding-left: 5px;">   <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1"> <meta content="MSHTML 6.00.2900.2963" name="GENERATOR"> <div><span class="502382905-28092006"><font color="#0000ff" face="Arial" size="2">Rumors  mean nothing if they don't apply. And of  the dozens of us in the OEVA and the EVs we own, you'll probably find few that  are uninsured. So  that alone should dispel those rumors. And  our electric vehicles range from scooters to daily drive cars to antique EVs to  boats. Probably a half dozen insurers could be found as being used by OEVA  members alone. In my  case, I use State Farm for my 1921 Milburn Light Electric. And it  was a snap to get insurance on it---mine is antique vehicle insurance, so it's  not a daily driver.</font></span></div> <div><span class="502382905-28092006"><font color="#0000ff" face="Arial" size="2">My  boat is insured by Grange Insurance, but that's legacy---it could as well be  State Farm or one of the dozens of boat insurance companies.   In the  case of the Milburn, the fact that it's electric was only a curiosity by my  agent.  No issue was made of that or the fact that it has no brake lights,  no turn signals, no seatbelts or steering wheel.</font></span></div> <div><span class="502382905-28092006"><font color="#0000ff" face="Arial" size="2"></font></span> </div> <div><span class="502382905-28092006"><font color="#0000ff" face="Arial" size="2">Again,  I don't think EVers are driving uninsured and our numbers are growing.   Insurance companies want to sell insurance.   So  don't let a rumor stop you from buying or building an EV.</font></span></div> <div><span class="502382905-28092006"><font color="#0000ff" face="Arial" size="2"></font></span> </div> <div><span class="502382905-28092006"><font color="#0000ff" face="Arial" size="2">-Myles  Twete, Portland, Or.</font></span></div> <blockquote style="border-left: 2px solid rgb(0, 0, 255); padding-left: 5px; margin-left: 5px;">   <div class="OutlookMessageHeader" dir="ltr" align="left"><font face="Tahoma" size="2">-----Original Message-----<br><b>From:</b> oeva-list-bounces at oeva.org    [mailto:oeva-list-bounces at oeva.org]<b>On Behalf Of </b>Sean    Hinckley<br><b>Sent:</b> Wednesday, September 27, 2006 7:53 PM<br><b>To:</b>    oeva-list at oeva.org<br><b>Subject:</b> Re: [Oeva-list]    Insurance?<br><br></font></div>I'm hearing rumors that it is hard to get    insurance for electric vehicles.  Anyone on this list have the real    scoop?
