Run out of charge in the UK? We'll recover you to the nearest chargepoint.

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
Vauxhall Safety features
Most newer Vauxhalls have a number of beneficial safety features
- Traffic sign recognition - this sign-detection system displays speed limits (and warns you if you're exceeding them), as well as other traffic signs - both permanent and temporary.
- Following distance indication - this system measures the distance to the car in front and lets you know via the central display how close you are (in seconds), warning you if you're driving too close.
- 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.
