GM delivers 50,000th vehicle with factory-installed XM Satellite Radio
Oshawa, Ontario – General Motors of Canada has delivered the 50,000th vehicle with factory-installed XM Satellite radio, less than a year after the service was offered.
“Delivering 50,000 vehicles with factory-installed XM Satellite Radio in less than a year has exceeded our expectations,” says Marc Comeau, vice-president, sales, service and marketing, GM Canada. “Customers have embraced satellite radio and we continue to see an increased demand for the service. In fact, along with our 50,000th delivery, we have an additional 50,000 customer orders for vehicles with XM Satellite Radio in our production schedule.”
General Motors Canada was the first automotive manufacturer to offer the service as a factory-installed option, beginning in December 2005. It is currently available in more than fifty models.
