A staggering number of almost 48,400 cars in 2021 were recorded by police as stolen. This is up 3%, from 46,800 in the previous year, though 20% fewer than 2019. Police warn of a rise in keyless car thefts as thieves come up with quick and effective methods that allow access to your vehicle in just 60 seconds.
An average of 133 cars are stolen every day in Britain - or 933 per week. Thieves do this by using a relay technology to receive the signal from a key inside a house and transfer it to a portable device, allowing them to unlock and drive the car. This is worrying for all vehicle owners.
What Vehicles Are Most Commonly Stolen?
Although common vehicles such as the Ford Fiesta and Vauxhall Corsa, are among the most stolen, data by the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency shows that criminals are targeting high-end Range Rovers and other premium marques, including BMW and Mercedes-Benz.
Topping the list of the most commonly stolen cars in 2021 was the Ford Fiesta, with 3,909 reported stolen to the police. In second spot was the Range Rover, with 3,754 reported cases of the expensive Land Rover SUVs being stolen last year.
Other luxury cars featured are Mercedes-Benz C-Class (1,474) and E-Class (818), BMW 3 Series (1,464) and Land Rover Discovery (1,260).
