2012 ES i-MiEV Contains Tracking Chip?

Hello everyone. I have a 2012 ES i-MiEV hatchback. I'm hoping there is someone on here familiar enough with the car to tell me if there is a GPS tracking chip in it by the dealer or manufacturer. I know some GM cars come with onstar (a universal malware backdoor in your car) that can remotely update or remotely shut your car off. I was wondering if there is anything akin to that in an i-miev, where I could find it, and how to remove it. Any help or information would be appreciated. Thanks!

No, there's nothing like that.

Also, you're paranoid.

Nope. No such beast in these cars. Yet another advantage to simplicity.
