Green Vehicle Insurance Discounts

  • Alternative fuel discounts. For cars that use alternative fuels like biodiesel, natural gas, ethanol, hydrogen, or electricity, insurance companies have been offering additional discounts on your auto premiums.
  • Pay as You Drive Programs. For other vehicle owners who are taking the initiative to drive less by carpooling, biking, or using public transportation, some insurance companies are offering significant discounts for the mileage decreases.   Depending upon the program, the insurance company may take mileage readings or install a GPS system.   The information is then taken by the insurance company to compare it against average drivers; and, if your mileage is significantly less, you will qualify for large discounts.
