Trackers for hybrid cars

Hybrid car tracking devices

It’s no secret – cars are getting ever greener and more and more people are adopting them. Big-name manufacturers like Toyota, Lexus, and BMW are all making hybrid cars to meet this increased demand. And in the wake of reducing emissions to combat climate change, this is something to be celebrated. Hybrid cars have tax benefits too!

But what exactly is a hybrid car? Well, in a nutshell, a hybrid car is an eco-car that uses both a traditional fuel engine and an electric motor to power the vehicle. What this means in practical terms is that a hybrid car is more efficient in fuel usage, and much greener when it’s using the electric motor. So when you adopt a hybrid car, you’re getting the best of both worlds!  

Obviously, with the increase in hybrid-car ownership, theft rates have increased accordingly, leading many owners to install a tracker on their vehicle.

Modern hybrid car theft

The rising numbers of hybrid car thefts is due to more than just an increase in people owning the cars however. Thefts of hybrid vehicles are increasing because criminals are becoming ever more savvy in their approaches. Better technology on the black market enables thieves to bypass electronic locks for example or start the car without the key being present (keyless car theft). A hybrid vehicle’s naturally quiet engine helps criminals too, as they’re able to drive away without arousing the suspicion a louder fuel engine would. 

Previously, a simple GPS tracker would have been sufficient protection for a vehicle, but criminals are becoming better at getting around this as well. Some are becoming highly skilled in jamming the GPS signal emitted by the GPS tracker, which means you’re effectively blind as they work to hide the car for good. This means there is increasing demand for a vehicle-tracking solution that criminals can’t circumnavigate.
