Have an electric Kia? All this is included as standard...

  • Recovery to the nearest chargepoint 
    Run out of charge in the UK? We'll recover you to the nearest chargepoint. We also have a fleet of vehicles we use in partnership with AFF the national roadside electric vehicle charging assistance company, which can recharge your vehicle and get you on the road again. This won’t affect your NCD and there’s no excess to pay
  • Cover for charging cables
    Charging cables, wall boxes and adaptors are covered for accidental damage, fire and theft
  • Battery cover
    Battery cover for accidental damage, fire and theft – even if you’re leasing it separately from the car
  • Over the air monthly updates (OTA)
    OTA updates are covered as standard when you insure your electric vehicle with us, but if you or the previous owner paid for additional performance upgrades affecting speed or acceleration, we'll need to know. You'll only need to tell us once and not everytime you upgrade.

And if you choose our optional hire car cover:

  • We’ll provide the use of an electric or hybrid hire car if your green machine is off the road

Kia Safety features

Most newer Kias have a number of beneficial safety features

Things like...

  • Lane Departure Warning System (LDWS) helps you stay in lane on the road. If you lose concentration and start to stray from your lane (moving out of it without indicating), the instrument cluster alerts you.
  • Kia's Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB) and Emergency Stop Signalling (ESS) help in emergency situations. AEB can identify critical situations early and alert the driver. It can also brake for you, potentially avoiding a collision or at least reducing the severity of a crash by lowering the speed of collision.
  • Tyre Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) checks the air pressure inside the tyres and warns you if it drops below the recommended level. It can give you an early warning of a slow puncture so you'll be less likely to have a 'blow out'.

So, where do Kia stand on electric cars?
