Why was misrepresentation material?

Gutierrez v Tri State Consumers Ins. Co., 2015 NY Slip Op 51703(U)(App. Term 2d Dept. 2015)

“Defendant demonstrated that the assignor, who was also the insured under the insurance policy in question, had misrepresented, among other things, his use of the subject vehicle when he had submitted his application for insurance to defendant. However, defendant failed to submit sufficient evidence to establish that this misrepresentation was material”

I sense the lack of materiality flowed from the failure to indicate that this misrepresentation would have caused the premium to be greater,
