Toyota Motor Italy, world leader in the sector of electrified engines, and LoJack Italia, a subsidiary of CalAmp and leader in stolen vehicle recovery and innovative automotive services, announced a partnership to protect the entire range of Toyota vehicles sold in Italy.
Starting this month, LoJack® Stolen Vehicle Recovery Service (SVR) will now be offered as an option on all Toyota models to improve security and peace of mind for Toyota customers.
LoJack® SVR device, installation and subscription services are included in an optional Plus Pack package for the new RAV4 Hybrid, new Corolla Hybrid and C-HR Hybrid. Alternatively, the LoJack service can be requested as a standalone option through any Toyota dealership in Italy. LoJack Italia delivers recovery rates of stolen vehicles equal to twice the national average enabled by four market-differentiating elements:
- proven Stolen Vehicle Recovery Technology through radio frequency that tracks vehicles where other systems are less effective such as containers, underground parking lots and garages;
- the unique partnership with State Police who install special units on patrol cars to directly track and facilitate the recovery of stolen vehicles;
- a Command Center at the service of the customer 24 hours a day, informing the driver through an alert at the moment the vehicle is stolen, providing constant updates during the search;
- the LoJack Security Team supporting the State Police in localizing, recovering and returning the vehicle to the owner.
Plus Pack is offered at a promotional price with the contribution of the Car Maker for customers who sign up for Pay Per Drive financing at all Toyota dealerships in Italy. The Plus Pack offer includes the LoJack Premium service for 4 years, alloy wheels with Yokohama winter tires and the Toyota Touch® 3 with Go Plus satellite navigation system. The complete package enables Toyota customers to enjoy safe and secure mobility, 365 days a year.
“Intelligent Security is a value that should be standard for all vehicles and one step toward this is offering access to LoJack in all of our Toyota models in Italy,” said Mauro Caruccio, managing director at Toyota Motor Italy. “Knowing your vehicle is protected from auto theft is priceless for drivers in terms of freedom and security. We’re excited to provide Toyota customers with this technology.”
Justin Schmid, senior vice president and general manager of LoJack International Operation for CalAmp, said:
“Partnering with a global automotive leader like Toyota is a significant advancement towards making the reliability and security of LoJack available to drivers all over the world.”
