£11.5 Million + Recovered within the first quarter of 2022

 

Quicker than a blink of an eye the first quarter of 2022 has already come and gone. 2022 is looking to be the busiest year for asset recovery in Global Telemetrics 13 year history and highlighting a worrying trend of vehicle theft being massively on the rise across the UK. 

For the first month of the year, the top 5 recovered vehicles were: Land Rover / Range Rover, Audi, Volvo, Mercedes and then in joint fifth position Ford and Volkswagen. 

Land Rover / Range Rover models equaled 45% of all recovered vehicles in the first quarter of 2022. Our recently released short film highlights the ease of stealing keyless vehicles and shows the process of recovery for Global Telemetrics. This can be found here: 

Audi’s in second place equalled 15% of all recoveries with Volvo’s being 10%, Mercedes being 9% and Fords and Volkswagen’s being 4% each.

The highest value car recovered for the first quarter was a Mercedes GT AMG R PRO, other notable high value recoveries were a Bentley Continental GT, a Range Rover Westminster, a Range Rover Sport SVR and an Audi RS 6. 

It’s not just high value assets that Global Telemetrics recover, a number of lower and mid-range value vehicles have also been recovered this quarter including a Lexmoto Diablo, Ford Transit, Audi S3, Abarth 595C Tourismo and Mercedes Sprinter 313. 

Analysing theft data for the first quarter Global Telemetrics were able to highlight the 5 biggest hotspots for thefts so far in 2022. These are: London, West Midlands, Lancashire, Yorkshire and Kent. London and Birmingham with London especially were the biggest hotspots for our recovered vehicles so far this year, with almost half of all our recoveries being from these two locations.
