Insurance premiums are one of the many factors we consider when purchasing a new vehicle. Here in British Columbia, we are all too familiar with paying hundreds of dollars monthly just to insure our vehicles, and all that can add up to thousands a year!
Luckily, the Insurance Corporation of British Columbia (ICBC) has introduced some ways where you are able to qualify for discounts and savings. One of which is that vehicles equipped with factory-installed autonomous emergency braking (AEB) are eligible for a 10% insurance discount in BC.*
What exactly is AEB? It is through this built-in feature that your vehicle can anticipate collisions and reduce the severity of the damage. How this works in the case of an incoming front-end collision is that your vehicle’s breaks will automatically engage without any need for action on the driver’s side.
Here is a list of 2021 models where AEB comes standard or comes as an optional add-on for certain trims.**
|Avalon||2 Series Gran Coupe||AMG GT|
|Corolla Hatchback||7 Series||E-Class|
|RAV4 Prime||X5||GLC Coupe|
|Tucson||Pilot||RX & RXL|
|A8||Range Rover Evoque||Legacy|
|Q3||Range Rover Sport||Outback|
|Q5||Range Rover Velar||WRX|
|CX-3||Atlas Cross Sport||Cooper Clubman|
To learn more about AEB or to find out if your older year models come equipped, please contact your local OpenRoad dealership for more information.
*The discount only applies to the 3rd party liability coverages (the basic $200,000 as well as increased optional limits). Discount not applicable to collision coverage. ICBC will not automatically apply this discount. It is up to the customer at the time of sale to purchase the discount, or it can be applied moving forward on a policy in person with an insurance agent. For more information, please contact your local OpenRoad dealership or ICBC.
**Certain trims or packages may not come equipped with AEB. Please contact your local OpenRoad dealer to get more information on any specific year, make, and model.
