XM Satellite Radio, a provider of satellite radio with more than seven million subscribers, along with General Motors announced GM plans to build over 1.8 million vehicles with factory-installed XM Satellite Radio in 2007.
GM was the world’s first automaker to offer satellite radio when it introduced XM as a factory-installed feature on Cadillac Seville and Deville models in 2001, and continues to lead all automakers in offering factory- installed satellite radio.
“This announcement continues to demonstrate General Motors’ commitment to providing XM Satellite Radio services to our new vehicle buyers,” said Rick Lee, General Motors Executive Director. “This, coupled with our August announcement to lower the option price of factory-installed XM to US$199, supports our effort to offer XM Satellite Radio to more customers.”
“General Motors has been instrumental in growing our business by introducing millions of car buyers across the nation to the extraordinary content of XM Radio,” said Steve Cook, executive vice-president, Automotive, XM Satellite Radio. “XM has been focused on the new car market since inception and GM has led the way for the industry. It is exciting to see GM driving the installation of XM into significantly more cars and trucks as a means to differentiate and enhance the appeal of their vehicles.”
GM continues to have the most extensive model line up in the industry with over 50 models featuring XM Radio.
Every GM vehicle with factory-installed XM includes a three-month trial service period.
