- Misfuelling cover
Accidentally filled your petrol or diesel car with the wrong fuel? It happens. We pay to drain and flush your fuel tank, as well as cover the damage to the car's engine*
*If you accidentally use E10 rather than E5 there’s no need to drain the tank, just fill with E5 next time.

Have an electric Mercedes? 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
Mercedes Safety features
Most newer Mercedes have a number of beneficial safety features
- Heads Up Display (HUD) lets you see important driver information (like speed limits or navigation instructions) into your field of vision so you don't have to take your eyes off the road.
- Distronic Plus assistance cruise control system automatically keeps the car a safe distance from the vehicle in front by braking when needed and accelerating again when it's clear. It also works in stop-start traffic for safer, more comfortable driving.
- Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB) is a smart safety system that automatically applies the car's brakes if the driver doesn't react quickly enough to a hazard ahead, the system can help avoid or mitigate potential collisions.
- Adaptive brake lights - If you have to brake hard, the adaptive brake lights warn vehicles behind you by flashing rapidly. If you come to a stop from a speed above 40 MPH the hazard warning lights also activate, so drivers behind you can react quicker and hopefully avoid a collision.
- LED Intelligent Light System adapts to light and driving conditions for better visibility on country roads and motorways and when turning or cornering. They also provide a more natural light with reduced glare.
Mercedes EQB and EQE insurance

Sandwiched between the EQA and EQC, is the EQB. It's based on the existing Mercedes GLB and shares its boxy styling and seven-seat layout.
Two all-wheel-drive models will be offered in the UK next year, both using a 66kWh battery, with 222PS or 292PS.
Charging can be carried out at up to 100kW, allowing a 10%-80% charge time in 30 minutes
Mercedes says a long-range version of the EQB, with a larger battery, will also be available, so watch this space!
Range: up to 410 miles
The electric E-Class counterpart is based on Mercedes’ purpose-built electric vehicle (EV) platform and promises a range of up to 410 miles.
Multiple powertrain options are expected to be offered, but only the EQE 350 has been detailed so far. It uses a 90kWh battery and has a power output of 292PS.
The EQE is compatible with up to 170kW chargers, enabling an 80% charge in around half an hour.
