Despite all the security features, some not-so-brilliant thieves are still trying to steal Tesla vehicles. A man in California was arrested this week after stealing a Tesla that the owner ended up tracking with the app and helping the police in their chase.
Eventually, he stopped on the highway after the battery ran out and was taken into custody.
Even if a thief can get around that, the owner can track the car through the Tesla app.
They could disable tracking in the setting, but Tesla pushed an update last year to require to enter your Tesla account password in order to disable tracking – making a lot tougher to steal a Tesla vehicle.
