Tesla Model 3 #1...

...in average insurance coverage costs in 49 States, according to nerd wallet (it's the 2nd highest in NY State). And interesting contrast to Elon Musk's statement that insuring a Tesla "should be 20% cheaper than average".

Louisiana has the highest average insurance bill for the Model 3, at $3436 / yr. Insanely expensive... funny how I've never read about extravagant insurance costs in a single Tesla review. Seems to be yet one more associated cost that gets swept under the rug (along with charging & maintenance costs). I'm kind of surprised this far into the Tesla story that this has slipped under the radar. As these hidden costs gets more & more exposure, will it dampen the buzz / long term sales (Tesla sales in the U.S. peaked in 2018)?

Seems to be yet one more associated cost that gets swept under the rug just because it's quick & can fart (along with charging & maintenance costs).

Good question. Calling and getting a quote, this almost seems like an anomaly, will find out...
