If you have decided to get an Electric Vehicle (EV) or Plug-in Hybrid Vehicle (PHEV) to do your bit for the environment, save on running costs - or maybe you just fancied a change - ensuring you and your car are covered for any unexpected circumstances might be something to consider.

As well as offering GAP insurance for EVs and PHEVs we also provide EV One: RAC EV One Warranty cover for EVs and PHEVs.

What is electric vehicle warranty?

RAC EV One Warranty is an optional add on mechanical breakdown insurance for electric & plug-in hybrid vehicles. It covers the cost of repair or replacement of mechanical and electrical components with a claim limit fixed at the market value of the vehicle when you buy your policy.

Do I need electric vehicle warranty?

With any vehicle that’s aged over its standard manufacturer’s warranty, there is the potential for components to fail. Extended warranties are designed to be a safety net, should the unexpected happen. As electric vehicles and plug-in hybrids have different components to a standard petrol or diesel vehicle, having a dedicated EV warranty can help to protect you out on the road. A benefit of our cover is that it is fully insured and protected, unlike other similar products found online.
