Can anyone share their experience with the cost of insuring the Volt vs. other cars? I got a quote for a 2017 Volt that was more than the insurance on a new $60K vehicle. I could buy several months worth of gas for the difference.

Mine wasn't more or less expensive than other vehicles owned. Get competitive quotes with other insurance companies.

I will definitely shop around after I talk to my agent again. But they have all my insurance, and having been with them for so many years, I hate to move everything.

Went from a $30K Mini Cooper and mine went up a bit. Nothing crazy, but it was more. The Volt MSRP was $3.65K, so.....

Mine was more so I switched to Progressive, which was less.

Went from a 2012 Volt to a 2016 Volt and my premium went up 12 dollars every six months, but having said that, with car insurance there are A LOT of factors, especially your credit score.

Insurance rates are highly dependent on the coverage and driver factors. That said, mine is $685 for 6 months through Geico with a purchase (leases can be higher). I wanted to move to Amica, and they were about double; which shows how extreme the differences can be.

All three vehicles have the same coverage/deductibles...

How in the world did you find a volt for $3.65K. Must. Be a misplaced decimal.

What car did you come from, and what insurance company did you have before?
Previous vehicle was an '09 Escape Hybrid to a MY12 loaded Volt. United Fire and Casualty was my previous insurance, but since we work with an agent, had several companies to choose from.
