Telsa car owners who have car insurance through the electric vehicle company can now link their Tesla insurance cards directly to Apple Wallet, providing more accessible access to cards on the iPhone and Apple Watch.

As part of an update to the Tesla app on the App Store yesterday, the company introduced Apple Wallet support to its app. Tesla car owners will be able to add their insurance card to Apple Wallet by going to the app, tapping on their profile picture, going to Account, Insurance, Manage tabs, and Documents.

Tesla launched its own insurance offerings in California several years ago and began expanding to other states late last year. Tesla insurance is now available in a handful of states, with the company saying it hopes to offer it in most US states by the end of the year as it becomes approved state by state.

In states other than California, Tesla offers insurance based on the collection of real-time driving data, the determination of premiums taking into account the distance traveled and a safety score which incorporates five different factors to evaluate safety with which you are driving.

The Tesla app is available for free on ‌App Store‌ [Direct Link].
