Back in January, Tesla CFO Zachary Kirkhorn said 80% of its U.S. customers will be able to purchase auto insurance from the company by the end of 2022.

Tesla Insurance leverages real-time Safety Scores based on driver behaviour, to set monthly premiums. The safer the driver, the lower the premiums, and thusly Tesla Insurance rewards safer drivers.
