Looking forward to the upcoming delivery of the Model S in Europe, I started inquiring concerning insurances.
Something that keeps coming back as a requirement set forward by each company is the need to have a GPS based anti-carjack system. I know that the Model S can - or let's say will - be tracked by the owner via the mobile app, but what they require is a system that can be tracked by a security company and that allows them to immobilize the car if needed.
As far as I know, the Model S does not have such a system yet.
How did that work out for all of you in the U.S. ? Did your insurance companies not require this ? Or how did you work around it ?
Of course there are aftermarket options available, but will Tesla allow installation of such a system ? Would not be surprised if they don't - just to avoid interference with the electronics in the car.
