Re: What motivation car manufacturers ?

No insurance company worthy of staying in business long term bases premiums on other than their actuaries' projections from experience. They might get a bit blindsided the first year or so for a new model because of unknown vulnerabilities or unanticipated popularity with thieves, but they nearly always will have enough raw profit margin built into the rates to cover the losses until they can adjust premiums.
