I really don't see the problem

The bottom car was a $16,000 car and the insurance was $1100
The Tesla was a $75,000 car and the insurance was $1700

So a car five times the price costs 50% more to insure??

Sounds like a bargain to me!

The Tesla does cost a bit more than an equivalent Mercedes - But a Tesla is not "just" a luxury car - its a damn sight more sporty with much higher performance

If you look at "Sporty Cars" on that list - like the Lancer, then they cost more - as always

The fact that there are no Ferraris/Porsches is because the numbers are not there or the writers ignored them - they are INSANELY high insurance

That was a cherry picked list - and it still did NOT show very high insurance

I suspect the mere fact that a LOT of Teslas are based in Californian big cities would add most of that diference

In the UK and here in NZ the same car in two different locations can change the premiums by a factor of two
