Thousands of Danish electric car owners make the same serious mistake

It can be expensive to release more horsepower in an electric car. The insurance company can say no to compensation in the event of an accident.

Polestar already does it, and Mercedes says exactly the same.

For either a larger lump sum or multiple monthly payments, EV owners can unleash more horsepower than their cars came with from the factory.

But it can be much more expensive than just paying the car brands for more horsepower. Because the insurance companies may be within their rights to say no to compensation in the event of an accident.

It's all about the number of horsepower – even if it is faked by the car factory itself on the individual car – must be recorded correctly and in the right systems.

– If the car owner does not register the change in the Vejtrafikregistret (the central motor register in Denmark, ed.), this may mean a reduction in compensation in the event of an injury, says Kajsa Moström at Folksam to the media.

At Polestar, for example, they are well aware that the so-called 'performance software' requires a new approach. But this is not something the car brand will pay for. It is up to the individual owner himself.

However, Polestar sends digital proof that the upgrade of the car is something the car brand stands for. Therefore, the car should also be able to slide straight through a vision.

Conversely, Tesla, which sells a so-called 'acceleration boost' for a number of cars – also on the Danish market – does not believe that it requires either any changes to the car or the type approval.
