How much do you really know about car insurance? Insurance is an expensive must-have with a car but do you really understand what it is and how it can help you? In this series of blog posts, we would like to equip our fans and clients with the basics of car insurance in order to make educated decisions while signing up with an insurer. Why Insurance? Insurance premiums are a big percentage of the cost of owning a car. It is a necessary expensive in order to protect the car owner from the following events:
  1. Damage to the car in an accident
  2. Financial liability to a third party involved in a car accident
  3. Medical expenses in the event of injury in an accident
  4. Theft of the car
Even scratches and dents to a car from minor incidents could be a big financial burden to the car owner and hence it is imperative to have a car insured to safeguard the owner from unforeseen expenses. What kinds of Insurance? There are basically three types of insurance covers available to car owners:
  1. Third-party liability Cover
  2. Collision Cover
  3. Comprehensive Cover
  The first type involves the financial liability for the owner to an affected party in the event of an accident that is the fault of the driver. This cover is a must-have for car owners, according to the law. Motor Vehicles Act of India mandates that every car owner purchase at least the third-party liability cover. car-insurance-for-dummies-images-006   Collision cover protects the car owner from damage to the car, in the event of a collision. If the car is damaged or destroyed in an accident, collision insurance coverage will pay to fix or replace it. Types of covered accidents include hitting another car or hitting a stationary object, like a bridge or a tree. This is not mandatory but not having this means the car owner runs a huge risk of not being able to fix the car after an accident. car-insurance-for-dummies-images-008   The third kind - Comprehensive Cover - is the most popular type of insurance as it covers both third-party liability and collision coverage. One can also buy optional insurance covers, termed as add-ons to cover various other liabilities. Some of the more popular add-ons are Engine Protection (covers engine repairs for owners of high-end cars), zero depreciation cover and road-side assistance. car-insurance-for-dummies-images-010   All of this sounds too good? Of course there is always a fine-print. Here is what is not covered by the insurers:
  • Loss or damage when the policy is not in force
  • Loss or damage when the person driving does not hold a valid driving licence
  • Loss or damage when the driver has been under the influence of alcohol/drugs
  • Loss or damage when driving in violation of manufacturer's guidelines
  • Loss or damage as a result of oil leakage
  • Gradual wear and tear of the car and the parts
  TSM partners top insurance companies and we guarantee:
  • Very competitive quotes
  • Comprehensive guidance for 'cashless' claims
  • Solid professional advice
  • Doorstep service

Electric Cars were in vogue in the late 19th century until the superior power of the internal combustion engine stormed the markets in the early 20th century. Like in fashion, technology has come a full circle, and electric cars are cool, once again. Improvements in electric battery technology and raising concerns over use of fossil fuels and air pollution have made electric cars gain popularity in the last 20 years. Electric cars are propelled by electric motors powered by electric charge stored in batteries. The current technology in electric motors make them 3 times more efficient than the internal combustion engines in energy usage. back-to-the-future-images-002   The biggest advantage of the electric cars are that they are environment friendly - firstly, they do not have tail pipe emissions. Smog in cities, largely caused by vehicular emissions, would be hugely reduced if electric cars were adopted popularly. Secondly, they make less noise making the roads quieter than the constant hum of the internal combustion engines. Thirdly and most importantly, production of electric energy is far less polluting with green energy alternatives (with wind, solar and hydel power) than burning of fossil fuels. back-to-the-future-images-004 With so many factors going for it, why are they not more popular, you might ask! Well, for the simple reason that they cost more. Lithium ion cells and the battery packs that hold them are quite expensive and that makes these cars more expensive to buy and maintain. Currently the cells cost $200 - $250 per kilowatt hour. But this is quite cheap compared to five years ago when per kilowatt hour cost was as high as $1200. Advances in technology only promises further reduction in these costs. Tesla Motors is said to be working on a $35,000 car that can run upto 200 miles in a single charge. The other major drawback of these cars is that they need to be charged every 100 or so miles which makes it difficult for highway driving as there might not be charging stations available. But this is a classic chicken and egg syndrome since mass adoption of these vehicles is sure to guarantee more charging stations but availability of charging stations is a pre-condition for mass adoption. Given the environmental benefits and that fact that more electric cars mean less oil imports, many countries in the world are offering subsidies and incentives to electric cars. Currently, more than 30 models of electric cars are available mainly in the US, China, Japan and Western Europe. With Nissan planning to launch the best-selling Nissan Leaf in India this year, more and more countries will see electric cars zoom in their streets. While the Nissan Leaf is the largest selling model in this category, the Tesla Model S is the coolest car available today. It is a top selling car among all cars in countries like Norway and Sweden, with its 24 kWh/100 km battery pack (equivalent to about 38 km/litre fuel efficiency). back-to-the-future-images-009
