EUROPA Versicherung has once again improved the components of its motor vehicle insurance for electric and hybrid vehicles, with the same excellent premiums. Business customers also benefit from this. Because now they can use the same services for their vans and small trucks.
The change in traffic is in full swing on the roads of Germany. The proportion of vehicles with electric and hybrid propulsion in the car fleet has doubled from 2021 to 2022. “This is why last year EUROPE oriented its comfort fee to electric and hybrid cars at no additional cost,” says Dr. Thomas Niemöller, Member of the EUROPA Composites Board. “Now we have increased services again.” With significantly improved offerings, brokers and their customers continue to stay in the fast lane. Among other things, the disposal costs of a total loss battery are insured up to 3,000 euros at the new comfort rate. A completely destroyed battery will be reimbursed for up to 24 months at the new price. In addition, the comfort fee covers consequential damages caused by short circuits or animal bites up to 10,000 euros.
Energy services also for trucks up to 3.5 tons in factory traffic
More and more businesses and craftsmen are also switching to electric or hybrid vans and small trucks. EUROPA has also significantly expanded its services for them. Owners of trucks up to 3.5 tons in company traffic now also benefit from the same services as car owners. For example, comprehensive battery coverage is included in comprehensive insurance. This also applies to surge damage caused by lightning during the charging process. Flush boxes and chargers are also insured.
Outstanding contributions for both gasoline and electric cars
In addition to great benefits, the new EUROPA rates continue to offer excellent premiums. Whether for cars and conventional trucks up to 3.5 tons or electric and hybrid vehicles.
Another extra: EUROPA is one of the few providers on the market that offers the Driving License Plus scheme. It grants more favorable conditions to drivers who have had their driver’s license for a long time and are registering a vehicle for the first time.
Just a few clicks to the eVB number
Brokers continue to benefit from lean processes in EUROPE. For example, they can request electronic confirmation of insurance (eVB) for their customers with just a few clicks on the trading partner portal. The customer receives the confirmation immediately by email. Personal contacts in EUROPA are available to brokers at all times for qualified assistance.

The EUROPA companies belong to the Continentale insurance association. They were founded in Cologne in 1959. The headquarters of the two companies, EUROPA Lebensversicherung AG and EUROPA Versicherung AG, still remain.
EUROPA manages a total of 1.5 million insurance contracts and 1.8 million policyholders in travel, general and group insurance contracts. Clients and brokers benefit from an attractive range of products, extensive service and very good advice. The two companies have repeatedly received awards in numerous independent tests and ratings for their products and the quality of their advice. Furthermore, EUROPA proves that high quality and good service can be cheap in the long run: With an average of 0.7% according to Wirtschaftswoche over the last three years, EUROPA is the life insurer with the lowest administrative cost ratio from Germany. That means most of the contributions go to protecting customers. A low rate indicates economy in administration.
