Another increase in car thefts

In the Netherlands, theft of vehicles such as cars, commercial vehicles and motorcycles remains a major problem. Compared to 2021, in 2022 the number of thefts has increased again, with some remarkable car models have been rising in the list. Some car models even have an increase of 900%! Fortunately, a whole bunch of vehicles have also been found thanks to vehicle security systems equipped with tracer.

As every year, the Dutch National Intelligence and Expertise Center for Vehicle Crime (LIV) has collected all car theft figures from the past year and has come to the conclusion that the number of car thefts has risen by 11%.

Especially the car models between 2 and 5 years old are very popular. Older cars are often not equipped with a track and trace system. Remarkable is that the theft of hybrid and electric vehicles also has increased by 74%. Overall, Toyota is the most stolen car brand.

How to prevent car theft?

Fortunately, there are plenty of options to (increase) the security of your car. For example, a live tracking system (Mi50) equipped with an immobilizer (MiBlock). With an immobilizer you ensure that no one but yourself can drive off with the car. In addition, installing a wireless tracer (Mi01) is a great option. The Mi01 is the number 1 after-theft recovery system and has European coverage. 

Nevertheless, should it come to a theft in one way or another, our investigation team will do everything they can to find your vehicle. The above systems are also recommended by various car insurers.

De voertuigdiefstalcijfers van de eerste helft van 2023 zijn onlangs vrijgegeven door het Landelijk Intelligence- en expertisecentrum Voertuigcriminaliteit (LIV). Opmerkelijk is de opvallende daling van het aantal diefstallen bij een specifiek automerk, ondanks dat dit merk nog steeds in de top 3 van meest gestolen automerken is geëindigd. Tegelijkertijd blijven de diefstallen bij de overige merken in de top 5 stijgen, waardoor de noodzaak voor (extra) autobeveiliging onverminderd aanwezig blijft.
