Looking for the cheapest auto insurance rates for your Mitsubishi i-MiEV? Sick and tired of being strong-armed to pay your car insurance bill each month? Your situation is no different than many other drivers.

The are a couple different ways to compare quotes from local insurance companies. The best way to find the cheapest 2016 Mitsubishi i-MiEV insurance rates consists of obtaining rate quotes online. This is very easy and can be done in just a few minutes using one of these methods.
Which method you use is up to you, but make sure you use identical quote information with each company.

And when price shopping your coverage, comparing a large number of companies will improve the odds of getting the best offered rates.

Understanding the coverages of a car insurance policy aids in choosing the best coverages and the correct deductibles and limits. The terms used in a policy can be confusing and coverage can change by endorsement. Below you’ll find the normal coverages available from car insurance companies.
Collision coverage pays to fix your vehicle from damage resulting from a collision with a stationary object or other vehicle. You will need to pay your deductible then the remaining damage will be paid by your insurance company.
Collision coverage protects against claims like scraping a guard rail, rolling your car, colliding with a tree and backing into a parked car. Paying for collision coverage can be pricey, so analyze the benefit of dropping coverage from vehicles that are older. Drivers also have the option to bump up the deductible in order to get cheaper collision rates.
Medical expense insurance
Med pay and PIP coverage kick in for immediate expenses such as nursing services, rehabilitation expenses and EMT expenses. They are used to fill the gap from your health insurance plan or if you are not covered by health insurance. It covers all vehicle occupants in addition to if you are hit as a while walking down the street. PIP coverage is not universally available but it provides additional coverages not offered by medical payments coverage
Protection from uninsured/underinsured drivers
This protects you and your vehicle when the “other guys” either are underinsured or have no liability coverage at all. Covered losses include injuries to you and your family as well as your vehicle’s damage.
Due to the fact that many drivers have only the minimum liability required by law, their liability coverage can quickly be exhausted. That’s why carrying high Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage should not be overlooked. Frequently your uninsured/underinsured motorist coverages are identical to your policy’s liability coverage.
Comprehensive (Other than Collision)
This coverage pays to fix your vehicle from damage OTHER than collision with another vehicle or object. A deductible will apply and then insurance will cover the rest of the damage.
Comprehensive insurance covers claims like falling objects, hitting a bird and hitting a deer. The most you can receive from a comprehensive claim is the market value of your vehicle, so if the vehicle’s value is low consider dropping full coverage.
Liability coverage can cover injuries or damage you cause to other’s property or people. Liability coverage has three limits: per person bodily injury, per accident bodily injury, and a property damage limit. As an example, you may have policy limits of 25/50/25 which means a $25,000 limit per person for injuries, a per accident bodily injury limit of $50,000, and a limit of $25,000 paid for damaged property. Some companies may use a combined limit which combines the three limits into one amount rather than limiting it on a per person basis.
Liability can pay for claims such as repair bills for other people’s vehicles, court costs, legal defense fees, bail bonds and emergency aid. How much liability coverage do you need? That is up to you, but it’s cheap coverage so purchase higher limits if possible.
