The 'problem' is that the car-jackers want commonly used vehicle parts when they break the car apart.
“It’s a one-model car; the parts on it won’t fit anything else but a Prius,” said John Abounader, executive director of the International Association of Auto Theft Investigators. “If you use a Camry, for instance, the engine might fit in another car. On a Prius, the engine is so different because they’re hybrid.”
The above news is good news for Prius owners, knowing that their car is unwanted by thieves. Based on the same logic, EVs won’t even be stolen even if left unlocked throughout the night?
