SBD has identified several different theft threats to hybrid and electric vehicles and their supporting technology in its latest research. Some of these are likely to occur from vehicle launch, whilst others are longer term.
According to SBD’s research, a new vehicle typically enjoys a period of around a year while thieves perfect new methods and theft of and from the vehicle begin to increase.
Vehicle manufacturers need to start seriously considering the causes and effects of hybrid and electric vehicle-related crime as soon as possible, before these issues do any long-term damage to the customer perception and market interest for these vehicles.
This report will enable you to:
• Identify potential security weaknesses in hybrid and electric vehicles as well as associated technology such as charging stations, batteries and power cables
• Learn why and when these types of vehicles will start to be targeted by thieves
• Understand the impact of theft issues on public perception and cost of ownership of hybrid and electric vehicles
• Gain independent recommendations on how to combat the particular security risks and improve vehicle design

  • 1. SBD Security research Theft risks for Hybrid and Electric Vehicles Hybrid and Electric vehicle-related crime to rise from just vandalism to full black market theft by 2016... SBD has identified several different theft threats to hybrid and electric vehicles and their supporting technology in its latest research. Some of these are likely to occur from vehicle launch, whilst others are longer term. According to SBD’s research, a new vehicle typically enjoys a period of around a year while thieves perfect new methods and theft of and from the vehicle begin to increase. Vehicle manufacturers need to start seriously considering the causes and effects of hybrid and electric vehicle-related crime as soon as possible, before these issues do any long-term damage to the customer perception and market interest for these vehicles. This report will help you: Identify potential security weaknesses in hybrid and electric vehicles as well as associated technology such as charging stations, batteries and power cables Learn why and when these types of vehicles will start to be targeted by thieves Understand the impact of theft issues on public perception and cost of ownership of hybrid and electric vehicles Gain independent recommendations on how to combat the particular security risks and improve vehicle design For additional information please email jappleby@sbd.co.uk or telephone Juanita on +44 (0) 1908 305101 and she will be happy to deal with your enquiry.
  • 2. Vehicle manufacturers may overlook the risks to EVs...Sales of Hybrid Electric (HEVs), Plug-in Hybrid Electric (PHEVs), Electric Vehicles(EVs) and other alternative fuel vehicles are dominating the future plans for thepassenger car market. Almost all vehicle manufacturers have either released orare expecting to release at least one alternative fuel vehicle in the near future.This new market for alternative fuel vehicles is expected to rise dramatically overthe next ten years and is widely anticipated to account for around 10% of theglobal passenger car market by 2020.New markets bring new challenges in terms of vehicle design, surroundinginfrastructure and also in the fight against vehicle crime. Whilst alternative fuelvehicle-related theft may not be a large issue now (due to their low representationin the vehicle parc), there is a risk that vehicle manufacturers may overlook thenew theft risks that these vehicles will introduce. Global sales of hybrid and electric vehicles with security risk landmarksNew vehicles fitted with high technology features and built with expensivematerials, such as inside the vehicle battery, will be extremely attractive to thieves.Whilst it will take several years for a black market for parts and second-handvehicles to fully develop, thieves will target these vehicles to sell the raw materials.With plug-in vehicles there also comes a large amount of surroundinginfrastructure, such as charging networks. Charging points and charging cableswill also be prime targets for both thieves and vandals, either to steal coppercontent, entire cables or to steal the electrical power directly (comparable tocurrent issues with fuel theft).These vehicles are relying on the “utopian image” that has been created to drivecustomer demand and help increase sales. Vehicle manufacturers need to startseriously considering the causes and effects of hybrid and electric vehicle-relatedcrime as soon as possible, before these issues do any long-term damage to thecustomer perception and market interest for these vehicles.
