Luxury electric vehicles from newer auto manufacturers like

Lucid, Rivian, and even Tesla are often written off by insurance

companies after what seem to be relatively minor accidents.

In many cases, this happens not because they aren’t repairable, but because insurers

would rather write it off than deal with the hassle. Local repair shops often don’t have the tools to

diagnose issues related to the battery and drive train, and service centers could be hundreds of miles away.
