Electric Car Warranty

You’ve chosen an Electric Vehicle (EV) or Plug-in Hybrid Vehicle (PHEV) to do your bit for the environment, save on running costs and maintenance – or maybe you just fancied something new. Ensuring you and your electric car are covered for any unexpected circumstances should be something to consider; especially since repair costs can be significant.

As well as offering GAP insurance for EVs and PHEVs, we also provide Electric Vehicle Extended Warranty for even more peace of mind over your beloved motor.

What is it?

ALA Extended Warranty is an optional insurance which covers mechanical and electrical breakdown for electric & plug-in hybrid vehicles. It covers the cost of repair or replacement of mechanical or electrical components that have failed unexpectedly. The eligibility requirements and claim limits differ between Silver, Gold and Platinum policies. Still unsure about extended warranties? Read our full guide: What are extended warranties?

Do I need it?

After your factory warranty period has ended, there is a potential for components to fail unexpectedly. Extended warranties are designed as a safety net, should the unforeseeable occur. Electric vehicles and plug-in hybrids have some different components (including, electric car battery and motor) to a standard internal combustion vehicle. Choosing an extended car warranty which covers electric car components, helps protect you on the road, where other providers can’t.

Although more difficult to find, fully insured and protected policies offer greater assurance over your investment. ALA Extended Warranty policies are always insured and our customers fully protected.

How much does Electric Vehicle Warranty cost?

The price of Extended Warranty depends on a few vehicle details such as vehicle make, model, age and mileage.
