Toyota Motor Italy and LoJack Italia, a subsidiary of CalAmp, announced a partnership to protect the entire range of Toyota vehicles sold in Italy.
Starting this month, the LoJack stolen-vehicle recovery service (SVR) will be offered as an option on all Toyota models to improve security and peace of mind for Toyota customers.
The 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.
To recover stolen vehicles, LoJack Italia leverages:
- SVR technology that tracks vehicles through radio frequency
- A 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 four years, alloy wheels with Yokohama winter tires and the Toyota Touch 3 with Go Plus satellite navigation system.
“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.”
“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,” said Justin Schmid, senior vice president and general manager of the LoJack international operation for CalAmp.
