Irish Examiner: Full speed ahead for electric car sales


According to Jonathan Hehir, MD of, “Up until now, if an individual with their own business sold their own car so that their business could then provide them with a company electric-car, they had to take out a brand-new insurance policy through the company — with zero no claims bonus. For this reason, the company has negotiated a special discount of between 8% and 12% for electric car drivers, making premiums for electric cars significantly cheaper than petrol or diesel cars.”
