JLR Invests in Vehicle Security

Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) UK has restated its dedication to safeguarding vehicles, prioritising the integration of cutting-edge technology to deter theft.

From 2022 onward, vehicles are constructed on JLR's most advanced electrical framework, boasting top-tier security features. The data indicates remarkable resilience against theft, with a mere 0.07% of new Range Rovers and Range Rover Sports stolen since January 2022, and only 0.3% of new Defenders affected since 2020.

The latest security enhancements are extendable to previous generation vehicles, even those beyond warranty coverage, ensuring they match the security standards of current models. Over 65,000 eligible vehicles dating back to 2018 have already received updates, facilitated through direct communication with owners.

JLR's investment includes upgrades to the Body Control Module (BCM) to prevent unauthorised vehicle operation. Previous vulnerabilities in keyless entry systems have been addressed through embedded technology in updates.

In 2018, JLR pioneered Ultra-Wide Band (UWB) protection to thwart relay attacks, effectively eliminating vulnerability to such methods and reducing reliance on faraday pouches for key storage. JLR advocates the use of available security measures, including the Jaguar and Land Rover 'Remote' apps, which offer features such as vehicle lock reminders and 'Guardian Mode' for real-time monitoring and alerts.

Furthermore, JLR strongly advises owners of Range Rovers, Defenders, Discoveries, and Jaguars who have been notified about security updates to promptly complete them through authorised retailers. For nearly three decades, JLR has collaborated closely with automotive risk and intelligence company Thatcham Research to develop leading security systems in the industry.
