In November 2019 I attempted to lease a Tesla 3 and was unable to do so. My agent at Farmers Insurance told me that Farmer's wasn't underwriting car policies for Tesla because: 1) cost to repair was too high; 2) parts availability was low which translated to longer than avg. wait times for repairs; 3) longer wait times meant insurers and clients paid more to rent a car; 4) in the NY metro area there were few body or repair shops that worked on Teslas. I sure hope that early Ocean buyers won't face the same hurdles getting insurance. I've got an accepter order for an Ultra (Oct 2023 delivery target). Will I can get insurance other than what Fisker may offer? If not, I'm keeping my 2020 RAV 4 hybrid - a terrific car IMO.

Interesting experience. I got insurance without issue on the model 3 in 2018. First from Chubb, then Pure, then from Progressive, now USAA. Model 3 rates are $1,200 every six months for two model 3s with max liability and $500 deductible. Never had any sort of issue. I would look around if you do not have luck with Farmers on the Ocean.
