Ford Pro Insure Launches Usage-Based Insurance In Minnesota

Ford Pro Insure – which is essentially auto insurance, but caters specifically to commercial fleet customers – debuted back in late 2022 as the latest product from the automaker’s dedicated business unit, which is aiming to provide those customers with a one-stop-shop approach. Since then, Ford Pro Insure has expanded its reach on a state-by-state basis in the U.S., and now, it has added a new option for customers in one of those states.

Initially, Ford Pro Insure was available to customers that are based in Arizona, Illinois, and Tennessee when it launched in July 2023, and this past January, it added Indiana and Wisconsin to that list. Recently, Ford Pro Insure also became available for commercial fleet customers seeking insurance in Minnesota and Maryland, too. However, though Ford Pro Insure is now offered in seven states across the U.S., Minnesota is the first where customers can choose between a standard policy or a usage-based policy. This is notable because retail customers have long had several usage-based insurance plans to choose from, thanks to Ford partnerships with companies like State Farm and Verisk.

Ford teamed up with Pie Insurance – a company provides distribution, underwriting, servicing, and claims – to create Ford Pro Insure, which is available through managing general agent Pie Insurance, though it’s also underwritten by a Blue Oval subsidiary dubbed The American Road Insurance Company (TARIC).

“We’re continuing to bring Ford Pro Insure to new states, giving more Ford Pro customers another piece of the puzzle to have the most efficient and productive fleets they can,” said Craig Carrington, executive vice president of Ford Pro FinSimple, Ford Credit’s brand that includes commercial financing and insurance. “We’re proud to offer Ford Pro Insure to more of the small and medium businesses that make up so much of our nation’s economy, adding to the end-to-end support delivered through Ford Pro.”
