Together with partner HDI, Mercedes-Benz Bank now offers “comprehensive” insurance cover for hybrid and electric vehicles. The new electric protection module is automatically added to insurance policies for EVs and thus does not incur any additional costs.
The battery insurance covers, for example, damage caused by overvoltage, salvage costs, fire, towing damage, consequential damage after a short circuit and after animal bites up to 10,000 euros.
The mobility protection also covers towing to the nearest charging station in the event of accidental discharge of the battery. In addition to the battery, the wall box and charging cable are also insured against theft and vandalism up to 2,500 euros.
“With the new battery protection, we are supporting the introduction of hybrid and electric vehicles from the Daimler Group with a comprehensive insurance solution,” says Benedikt Schell, Chairman of the Board of Management of Mercedes-Benz Bank. As is well known, more and more electric and hybrid vehicles from the Daimler Group are coming onto the market – including many plug-in hybrid variants from the A to the S-Class, as well as other purely electric cars from Mercedes-Benz.
“In addition, there are further services and hardware available in connection with electric mobility in cooperation with Mercedes-Benz and Daimler Mobility,” the accompanying communication states. These include packages to supplement electromobility for longer journeys via Mercedes-Benz Rent or charging point billing systems for commercial customers with electric vehicle fleets.
