Ohio hybrid drivers get a discount from Farmers Insurance

Drivers in the buckeye state who own hybrids may want to shop around the next time their insurance comes up for renewal. The Farmers Insurance Group has announced that they will offer a 10 percent rate discount to drivers of hybrid and alternative fuel vehicles. The new discounts went into effect November 1, and affect new customers immediately and existing customers when they renew. Since insurance companies generally base their premiums on an assessment of the risk posed by the car and the driver, they must feel that hybrid drivers are more responsible in their driving habits as well as their purchase habits. So far the discount apparently only applies in Ohio.
