I briefly explore the current personal auto insurance landscape and then analyze the Tesla Insurance Offering including the newly introduced Safety Score in Texas. I also cover the risks and the financial impact Tesla Insurance could have. Tesla Insurance has a long runway ahead but it won't be an overnight success. Nonetheless, I wouldn't bet against Tesla successfully disrupting and competing within the personal auto insurance market.
