Nissan car insurance

Nissan have released numerous cars since they first launched in Japan, but here are a few of their current range that stand out:

  • The Nissan Qashqai has won awards for being one of the best-selling family cars in the UK
  • The Nissan Micra is an iconic small but reliable car
  • The Nissan GT-R, a sporty coupe offering impressive performance at an affordable price
  • The all-electric crossover Ariya is one of the latest editions.

Nissan is one of the biggest car brands in the world, and now a major player in the electric car market too.

Whatever model you’re thinking of buying, you’ll also need to factor in the cost of car insurance. The price you pay depends on a lot of different factors, including the model of car you choose.

How much does a Nissan cost to insure?

The cost of Nissan car insurance depends on lots of different factors. Car insurers group different models of cars into price brackets, and there are 50 of these. Cars towards the bottom end are seen as the cheapest to insure and those in the higher brackets are more expensive.

For example, the Nissan Micra is likely to fall into an insurance group around 7-11. On the other hand, the Nissan Qashqai insurance group will be between 13-21 as it’s a more valuable car and will cost more to insure.

When calculating Nissan car insurance quotes, insurers will also take into account lots of other factors. These include details about the driver, such as their age, location, profession, and driving history, as well as information about the Nissan itself including its age, value, and where it’s kept.

While every car insurance quote is unique, here we’ve picked out some examples of the cost* of Nissan car insurance, to give you an idea of how much you might pay for different models.

If it’s a Nissan Micra you're insuring, the cost of annual insurance will set you back an average £555* for the Micra Visia (80) while insuring the higher grade Micra Acenta (80) costs an average £681*.

Insuring a popular model such as the Qashqai N-Connecta DCI will cost an average of £426*.

A more deluxe SUV from Nissan is the X-Trail, also aimed at families but with a slightly higher budget. The average cost of insurance for the X-Trail Tekna 130DCI is £545*.

The average premium for the all electric Leaf Tekna is just £521*, while an all electric Nissan Ariya Evolve (87kWh) is £456*.

The Nissan Juke Tekna (117) will typically cost £586 a year to insure*.

IIt’s always important to compare Nissan car insurance prices to find the best policy for you. That includes looking at what’s included and how much it costs. It’s also important to look at reviews from customers to see what they think of the insurance.

You will also need to factor in the following costs: road tax, fuel, and the cost of Vehicle Exercise Duty (VED), an annual tax based on your car’s emissions.

Nissan history and facts

Nissan was founded in 1911 in Japan by Masujiro Hashioto and at the time was known as the Kaishinsha Motor Car Works.

It wasn’t until 1934 that it was named the Nissan Motor Company, after several name changes.

The company started out producing several vehicles including Datsuns. During the Second World War it also made planes and trucks for the Japanese army.

In the late 1950s it began expanding across the globe and in 1958 it displayed cars at the Los Angeles Auto Show before opening a subsidiary in the US in 1960.

In 1986 a plant was built in England which by 2007 was one of the biggest in Europe, producing more than 400,000 cars a year.

In 1999 Nissan joined the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Alliance. Within the alliance there are 450,000 employees, and one in nine cars sold worldwide is made by one of these brands.

They have 722 manufacturing plants between them and sold 737,000 electric cars between 2009 and 2018. The Nissan Leaf is the world’s best-selling electric car with more than 409,000 cars sold since its launch in 2010.

The Nissan logo, a circular design with a horizontal plate featuring the name, was inspired by its founder’s mantra: ‘If you have a strong belief, it penetrates even the sun’. In 2020 Nissan created a new logo for its cars, to represent its move into the digital age.
