A chat group?

Really?

There's nothing at the URL you provided that allows me to let AARP know that they should pressure Hartford to cover Teslas or find a new insco.

This is not the place to contact AARP/HARTFORD about insurance coverage for any area.

 

As noted before: 

My first thought is that there is not enough accident history to set rates for these vehicles. It has been a long time since I took principals of insurance. I would suggest you shop the insurance market. I'm sure they are a very small percentage of the vehicles that would be covered. Not enough to add them under the blanket coverage of many inuance companies. It is all about spreading their risk across a large cross section of vehicle types.

 

There are just 300,000 Tesla cars on the road compared to the 35,000 new Camry's sold in March 2018.

I just bought a Model 3. Hartford's excuse for not coveing Tesla, I was told by a representative, is that they see Tesla as in the same class with Ferrari, Lamborghini, Bentley, etc., which is absurd.

 

AARP, hear me: A big part of what keeps me a member is the insurance. If Hartford doesn't get with the program, I will likely move ALL my insurance to another company.

I own a Tesla and use SF.  I just tried to call for a quote given that I get at least one solicitation from Hartofrd a month throuh AARP.  Why not...?

It would have saved everyone time and money if it read on the solicitation "We don't Insure Teslas."

Oh well.

Apparently a few insurance companies won't cover Tesla vehicles.

I suggested that AARP find another partner that can meet the needs of it's members.

Just another thing to think about when shopping for an automobile


Wow, did they say why? There are many Teslas where I live and it’s on my to-buy list in a few years.  That’s very odd...
