Monthly insurance costs for the JAC T8 double cab

JAC has updated its T8 series in South Africa, adding a significant amount of new features to the double cab.

The bakkie is now available in 4×2 and 4×4 specifications at a starting price of R449,900 and R499,900, respectively.

It runs on a 2.0-litre turbocharged diesel powerplant with 104kW and 320Nm – enough to let it tow 2,000kg and carry 900kg in the back. This powertrain is then paired with a six-speed manual gearbox, achieving a combined fuel consumption of 7.8l/100km.

Also included as standard on the JAC is a set of xenon headlights, daytime running lights, and fog lights, 18-inch alloy wheels, and a black off-road style bar, rear step bumper, and side steps.

Inside, there is a multifunction steering wheel, manual aircon, a sunroof, electric windows, leather seats, an electric driver seat, USB and 12V power sockets, and a 9-inch media system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

The T8 also comes with ABS, cruise control, hill assist, a tyre-pressure monitoring system,, rear parking sensors, and a reverse camera.

Insurance costs

We used Hippo’s car insurance quote tool to find out what the monthly insurance premiums on the new JAC would be.

The calculations were based on an individual living in a metropolitan area like Johannesburg with no claims history who would be able to store their car in a locked garage at night.

Below, you’ll find nine insurance quotes for the T8’s RWD and 4WD options, as provided by Hippo:

Insurer JAC T8 4×2 monthly premiums JAC T8 4×4 monthly premiums
King Price R1,620.11 R1,766.48
Iwyze R1,793.39 R1,974.34
Budget R1,811 R1,857.65
Old Mutual R1,827.67 R1,993.07
Pineapple R1,838.53 R1,953.87
Auto & General R1,899.21 R1,946.54
1st for Women R1,913.6 R1,962.43
Dial Direct R1,955.62 R2,003.9
Virseker R2,062.65 R2,117.96

Note that car insurance is heavily dependent on factors like your age, location, and claims history, meaning your premiums could be higher or lower than this depending on your circumstances.

Hippo also detailed the excess for each insurer, which are as follows:

Insurer Excess claim
Iwyze R6,250
Old Mutual R6,250
Pineapple R6,250
King Price R6,500
1st for Women R8,500
Auto & General R8,500
Dial Direct R8,500
Virseker R8,500
Budget R8,700

An excess is the amount that you are required to pay as a client when you are involved in a car accident and make a claim to your insurer.
