Tracker for insurance

Not in the traditional sense.

You are best off trying to find someone at the insurers who understands Teslas and speak to them directly to find out if the tracker it has is suitable. It is not as effective as bespoke ones, relying on (as far as I know) LTE network connectivity, whereas proper ones have internal GPS with battery backup, etc.

I went with a "Tesla aware" insurer for this and other reasons, as I didn't want to risk a misunderstanding over the intepretation of "tracker" in the event of a claim.

As a little aside

Tesla did have job adverts posted in the UK for actuaries a while ago. Got the impression they where planning to launch innovative insurance products (I assume that means using actual vehicle data to determine premiums)

Had a similar challenge from our fleet insurer, ended up insuring Tesla on a different policy with Direct Line, far cheaper and no tracker.

One thing to watch out for is the tracker package we have on our hydrogen Hyundai Nexo comes with a fob that you have to keep on your person when driving.

Would have somewhat diminished the keyless appeal of the M3....
