Business breakdown cover for electric and hybrid vehicles
Is your car or van electric? We're number 1 for electric vehicle breakdown cover* as we do more than anyone else to keep you on the road. With the RAC, breakdown cover for your EV is included as standard so there’s no need to pay extra – we cover electric, hybrid and plug-in hybrid vehicles, as well as petrol and diesel vehicles. We're already working with UK businesses such as Royal Mail, and British Gas to keep their electric cars and vans moving.
Need a tow? Electric vehicles usually have to wait for a recovery truck as towing can damage them. Our high-tech vans can lift all four wheels off the ground, saving you time and protecting your vehicle.
RAC mechanics are trained in electric, so they know your electric car or van inside out. You’ll be in safe hands with our experts.
Battery run out? Banish range anxiety with our cover. Only the RAC can give you a 10-mile boost with our EV Boost mobile charger fitted to our patrol vans, no need to tow you to the nearest charge point.
