Range Rover Security Products and Trackers.
With recent reports and information showing the most stolen cars in the UK being released by the DVLA, we wanted to do a post to highlight some of the key products that will help in the battle against theft...
The CVLA have revelaed that 56 288 cars were stolen in 2019, which equates to a car every nine minutes being stolen, or 154 a day...
There is data for the top ten, but what we are obviously focussing on is the Range Rover, and subsequently other Land Rover models too.
The Range Rover ranks as number two in the chart as can been seen below, which for a relatively low volume manufacturer that is a high percentage of cars going... Over 1900 were stolen in 2019
The office for national statistics revealed that around 40% of vehicles were returned to there owners. Its also questionable whether those owners wanted there vehicles back, 75% of vehicles stolen are returned with damage to them. furthermore 22% are written off completely...
There are some interesting facts from the Office for National Statistics too, for example:
- 63% of vehicles are removed on week days.
- 42% of vehicles have been stolen on a semi-private area near the owners home
- 40% of all vehicle thefts are recorded in West Yorkshire, Greater Manchester or the West Midlands.
- The number of keyless car thefts nearly doubled from 26% in 2008 to 49% in 2018.
- 11% of thefts are of brand-new vehicles.
What this doesn't indicate, is how many vehicles have parts stolen from them... We have seen a growing trend of discovery 4 lights being stolen, so more to come on that in due course, with products to follow.
Further research of thefts from vehicles does reveal some figures.
£4622 worth of goods, on average, are stolen from vehicles, the most common target for this is exterior fittings (nearly 35%). Valuable are also obviously a target (Just over 20%), followed by electrical equipment which takes 16.5% of the share. and then finally just over 9% is of other vehicle parts.

|Rank||Car||Number stolen in 2019|
|5.||BMW 3 Series||1,042|
|7.||Land Rover Discovery||791|
