Third-party liability insurance is also compulsory for electric vehicles in Switzerland. It steps in when you cause injury or damage to others with your electric vehicle, such as if you fail to notice a cyclist while turning or run into the back of another vehicle in a traffic jam.

  • Property of family members covered
    Accidentally run over your son's bike while parking? Our third-party liability insurance pays if you damage family members' property with your electric vehicle. And with our additional first-party loss option, our liability coverage even pays for damage to your own property.
  • Flexible deductible
    Premium too high? With our third-party liability insurance for electric cars, you determine yourself how high your deductible will be in the event of a claim – and can thus reduce your premium.
  • Passive legal protection

Your third-party liability insurance will pay for the damage to the property of third parties and to the underground car park. Fire damage to your electric car is only covered if you have taken out partially comprehensive insurance.
The insurance covers damage to the charging point and the charging cable, for example due to theft, fire or natural hazards such as lightning and hail. However, make sure that you declare the accessories correctly when taking out the policy.
The charging point counts as part of the accessories and you can insure the accessories via the comprehensive insurance for your electric car. The insurance covers damage to the charging point and the charging cable, for example due to theft, fire or natural hazards such as lightning and hail. It is important to declare the accessories correctly when taking out the insurance.
It is possible that the charging point is already covered by your cantonal or private buildings insurance. Be sure to clarify this in advance. If the charging point is already insured, you can declare fewer accessories in your comprehensive car insurance and thus save on the premium.
If your electric vehicle's battery is damaged in an accident, this can easily result in a total loss. Comprehensive insurance covers this. And even in the event of a short circuit, your electric vehicle's battery is well insured via your comprehensive insurance.
On the one hand, the battery can be insured against what are known as partially comprehensive events. These include, for example, damage caused when a marten chews on the electronics or the battery suffers a short circuit due to a defective charging point. On the other hand, the battery can also be insured against collision damage, i.e. damage that occurs during a collision – for example, if you hit a pole while parking or the battery is damaged when you drive over a curb.
If there is a short circuit in the charging point and the battery and electronics are damaged by the excess current, this is covered by your partially comprehensive insurance. That is because this counts as damage by an external influence. If, on the other hand, the battery has an internal defect which causes damage, this is not insured.
This is insured under the "breakdown assistance" add-on. We will tow your electric car away and ensure your home or onward journey.
The manufacturer's warranty will pay for some damage, but not all. With comprehensive insurance, you can close the gaps and also insure damage caused by violent or external influences, for instance.
Lost your charging card? The charging card is insured against loss and disappearance via your household contents theft coverage. It can also be insured via the household contents assistance blocking service. The blocking service applies to registered cards and includes reimbursement of blocking and replacement charges, assistance with obtaining replacements and compensation for card abuse of up to CHF 5,000 per card or CHF 10,000 per event.
