Auto Thefts Up 15.8% in Mexico

MEXICO CITY – A total of 23,542 vehicles were stolen in Mexico from April 2009 to April 2010, a figure that was up 15.8 percent from the prior comparable period, Mexican insurance association AMIS said in a report.

The states reporting the highest number of auto thefts are the central state of Mexico, which surrounds the Federal District and forms part of the Mexico City metropolitan area, with 5,196, the Federal District, 4,761, Nuevo Leon, 2,586, Chihuahua, 1,959, and Jalisco, 1,790.

These four states and the Federal District accounted for 69 percent of all auto thefts in Mexico, AMIS said.

Recoveries of stolen vehicles, according to the report, rose from 8,000 units in April 2009 to 8,775 in the same month this year, a figure that was up 9.6 percent.

The Federal District, however, was the exception, with recoveries falling 18.4 percent during the year-on-year period from 2,211 vehicles to 1,805.

The cities with the highest auto theft rates are Monterrey, Guadalajara, Ecatepec, Chihuahua, Culiacan and some boroughs in the Federal District.

Only 47 percent of Mexico’s 23 million automobiles, or some 11 million vehicles, are insured, AMIS said. EFE
