America’s Most Wanted — By Car Thieves
The National Insurance Crime Bureau recently released its annual findings on the most stolen cars in America. The “Hot Wheels” report analyzes vehicle theft data submitted to the National Crime Information Center by law enforcement agencies around the country. “Auto thefts saw a dramatic increase in 2020 versus 2019 in part due to the pandemic, an economic downturn, law enforcement realignment, depleted social and schooling programs, and, in still too many cases, owner complacency,” said David Glawe, president and CEO of the NICB. In 2020 there were 880,595 car thefts in the U.S. — approximately one vehicle stolen every 36 seconds. What follows are the most stolen cars during calendar year 2020, the percentage increase over 2019, as well as each vehicle’s most commonly stolen model year.
