How Much Does 2016 Cadillac ELR Insurance Cost?

Finding low-cost insurance for a new or used Cadillac ELR can normally be a lot of work, but you can learn these tips to find lower rates.

There are both good and bad ways to shop for insurance coverage and we’ll show you the quickest way to compare rates for a Cadillac and locate the lowest possible price either online or from local insurance agents.

The best way we recommend to compare rates is to know the trick almost all companies pay for the opportunity to compare their rates. To begin a comparison, all you need to do is provide a little information like the type of vehicles you drive, driver ages, if a SR-22 is needed, and how you use your vehicles. That information is sent automatically to multiple auto insurance providers and they provide comparison quotes with very little delay.

How your ELR insurance rates are determined

An important part of buying insurance is that you know some of the factors that come into play when calculating your car insurance rates. If you know what impacts premium levels, this allows you to make educated decisions that may result in better car insurance rates.

  • Your liability protection limits – Your policy’s liability coverage kicks in in the event that you are responsible for damages caused by your negligence. Your liability coverage provides for a legal defense which can be incredibly expensive. This coverage is relatively inexpensive compared to other policy coverages, so drivers should carry high limits.
  • Save money by raising coverage deductibles – Deductibles for physical damage are how much you are required to spend out-of-pocket if the claim is covered. Physical damage protection, otherwise known as comp (or other than collision) and collision, covers damage that occurs to your car. A few examples of covered claims are a windshield broken by a bird, animal collisions, and having a roll-over accident. The higher the amount the insured is willing to pay, the lower your rates will be for ELR coverage.
  • Where do you drive? – Driving more miles in a year’s time the higher your rate. Many insurance companies apply a rate based upon how you use the vehicle. Cars left parked in the garage qualify for better rates than vehicles that have high annual mileage. Ask your agent if your car insurance policy is showing the correct usage for each vehicle, because improper ratings can cost you money. An improperly rated ELR is throwing money out the window.
  • Teen drivers pay higher rates – Inexperience drivers are statistically shown to be easily distracted when driving with friends so they pay higher car insurance rates. Having to add a young driver onto your car insurance will cause a huge premium hike. Older, more experienced drivers are more cautious drivers, file fewer claims and are safer drivers.
  • Drive a safer car and pay less – Safer cars can get you lower premiums. Vehicles engineered for safety reduce injuries and reduced instances of injuries means less claims paid and more competitive rates for policyholders.

Discounts for lower-cost insurance coverage rates

Companies do not list every disount available very well, so we took the time to find a few of the more well known and also the more inconspicuous savings tricks you should be using when you buy insurance coverage online.

  • Senior Citizens – Older drivers may receive lower premium rates for ELR coverage.
  • Savings for New Vehicles – Buying insurance coverage coverage on a new vehicle can save up to 30% due to better safety requirements for newer models.
  • Air Bags and Passive Restraints – Vehicles with factory air bags or automatic seat belts can receive discounts of more than 20%.
  • More Vehicles More Savings – Buying a policy with multiple vehicles with the same company can get a discount for every vehicle.
  • Policy Bundle Discount – If you combine your home and auto policies with one company you may earn 10% to 20% off each policy.
  • No Accidents – Drivers with accident-free driving histories get the best insurance coverage rates in comparison with bad drivers.
  • Pay Upfront and Save – By making one initial payment instead of making monthly payments you could save 5% or more.
  • Discounts for Federal Employees – Active or retired federal employment could qualify for a slight premium decrease for ELR coverage with certain companies.
  • E-sign Discounts

One thing to note about discounts is that most discounts do not apply the the whole policy. Most cut the price of certain insurance coverages like comp or med pay. Even though it may seem like all the discounts add up to a free policy, it doesn’t quite work that way.

A few of the larger companies and some of the discounts are shown below.

  • State Farm includes discounts for good driver, Steer Clear safe driver discount, passive restraint, driver’s education, and anti-theft.
  • American Family offers discounts for good driver, accident-free, mySafetyValet, good student, multi-vehicle, Steer into Savings, and bundled insurance.
  • Geico may have discounts that include good student, anti-lock brakes, daytime running lights, defensive driver, military active duty, multi-vehicle, and anti-theft.
  • 21st Century may offer discounts for automatic seat belts, 55 and older, homeowners, good student, student driver, theft prevention, and teen driver.
  • Progressive policyholders can earn discounts including online quote discount, homeowner, continuous coverage, good student, and online signing.

Tailor your auto insurance coverage to you

When it comes to buying the right insurance coverage for your vehicles, there isn’t really a perfect coverage plan. Coverage needs to be tailored to your specific needs.

These are some specific questions may help you determine if your insurance needs will benefit from professional help.

  • Am I covered if I break a side mirror?
  • What is UM/UIM insurance?
  • What if I owe more than I can insure my car for?
  • How high should deductibles be on a 2016 Cadillac ELR?
  • Can I rate high risk drivers on liability-only vehicles?
  • Is my Cadillac ELR covered if I use it for business?
  • Am I covered when driving a rental car?
  • When do I need to add a new car to my policy?

If you can’t answer these questions but one or more may apply to you, then you may want to think about talking to an insurance agent. To find an agent in your area, simply complete this short form. It is quick, free and can help protect your family.

Car insurance coverage specifics

Understanding the coverages of your policy can be of help when determining the right coverages and the correct deductibles and limits. Car insurance terms can be impossible to understand and reading a policy is terribly boring.

Coverage for medical payments

Coverage for medical payments and/or PIP reimburse you for expenses for things like nursing services, ambulance fees and chiropractic care. The coverages can be used to fill the gap from your health insurance policy or if you lack health insurance entirely. It covers all vehicle occupants and also covers being hit by a car walking across the street. PIP coverage is only offered in select states but can be used in place of medical payments coverage

Collision insurance

This pays for damage to your ELR resulting from colliding with an object or car. You first must pay a deductible then your collision coverage will kick in.

Collision insurance covers claims like sustaining damage from a pot hole, sideswiping another vehicle, rolling your car, hitting a mailbox and hitting a parking meter. Collision coverage makes up a good portion of your premium, so consider dropping it from vehicles that are 8 years or older. Drivers also have the option to bump up the deductible in order to get cheaper collision rates.

Auto liability insurance

This coverage will cover damage or injury you incur to people or other property that is your fault. It protects you from claims by other people, and does not provide coverage for damage to your own property or vehicle.

It consists of three limits, bodily injury for each person injured, bodily injury for the entire accident and a property damage limit. As an example, you may have values of 25/50/25 which stand for $25,000 in coverage for each person’s injuries, a limit of $50,000 in injury protection per accident, and a limit of $25,000 paid for damaged property. Occasionally you may see one limit called combined single limit (CSL) which provides one coverage limit rather than limiting it on a per person basis.

Liability insurance covers claims such as structural damage, repair bills for other people’s vehicles, funeral expenses, court costs and emergency aid. How much coverage you buy is your choice, but consider buying as large an amount as possible.

Uninsured and underinsured coverage

This coverage gives you protection when other motorists are uninsured or don’t have enough coverage. This coverage pays for medical payments for you and your occupants and also any damage incurred to your Cadillac ELR.

Since many drivers have only the minimum liability required by law, it doesn’t take a major accident to exceed their coverage limits. That’s why carrying high Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage is important protection for you and your family. Usually these coverages are set the same as your liablity limits.

Comprehensive coverages

Comprehensive insurance pays for damage caused by mother nature, theft, vandalism and other events. You first must pay your deductible and the remainder of the damage will be paid by comprehensive coverage.

Comprehensive can pay for things like fire damage, vandalism, rock chips in glass, a tree branch falling on your vehicle and hitting a deer. The maximum payout you’ll receive from a claim is the ACV or actual cash value, so if your deductible is as high as the vehicle’s value it’s probably time to drop comprehensive insurance.

Smart shoppers get results

You just learned a lot of tips how to lower your 2016 Cadillac ELR insurance rates. The key concept to understand is the more you quote insurance coverage, the higher your chance of finding inexpensive insurance coverage. You may even discover the biggest savings come from a company that doesn’t do a lot of advertising.

As you restructure your insurance plan, it’s very important that you do not buy less coverage just to save a little money. There have been many situations where an accident victim reduced uninsured motorist or liability limits only to regret that the few dollars in savings costed them thousands. Your strategy should be to get the best coverage possible at the best possible price but still have enough coverage for asset protection.

Some car insurance companies may not provide the ability to get a quote online and most of the time these smaller companies provide coverage only through independent insurance agents. The cheapest 2016 Cadillac ELR insurance is available on the web and from local agencies, so you should be comparing quotes from both to have the best chance of lowering rates.
