The table above shows the average cost of BMW i3 insurance based on insurance groups and driver age. However, there are a number of other factors that affect the cost of your car insurance premiums, and one of the biggest is where you are in the UK. Where you live helps determine the level of risk that your car may be stolen or that you'll be involved in an accident, and this affects the cost of insurance.

How can I save on my BMW i3 premiums?

When searching for insurance, you'll want to find the best deal for a price that's within your budget. We've uncovered some tricks you can try to lower the cost of your premium, and we've listed them below.

  • Limit your car usage (where possible). Occasionally deciding to walk or get public transport, rather than using your car, can help to save on your premiums.
  • Pay annually rather than monthly. Whilst it might be scary to part with a large sum of money in one go, if you're able to pay annually you can save an average of £59.52 a year.
  • Install extra safety precautions. The safer your car is, the less of a risk it will be for companies to insure. By adding extra safety measures, you're quite likely to lower your premium.
  • Don't just accept your renewal quote. When it's time for renewal, it's worth investing a couple of hours to shop around: there may be cheaper options out there.

Bottom line

There's no getting around it: a BMW i3 is going to cost you more to buy, run and insure than many other cars of a similar size and spec. If that's the range you have your heart set on, be sure to compare car insurance (and car finance, if applicable) before you buy, so you don't pay any more than you have to.
