The average cost of Tesla car insurance comes in just below $1,000 per year. If you want to save on Tesla auto insurance, try Progressive, which offers the most affordable policies for the Model S and among the cheapest rates for the Model X. The major insurance charging the most for Tesla insurance are Allmerica and State Farm.

Tesla has recently moved into the insurance space itself, promising Tesla owners lower rates. The company says its unique understanding of its technology and the true costs of repairs can help the manufacturer bring down such costs for many owners. As Tesla is renowned for its customer service, some customers are thrilled at the idea of purchasing insurance directly from the automaker. While not yet widely available, Tesla's insurance is set to expand across multiple states in an effort to make Tesla insurance more affordable.
