iBiquity has announced the expanded availability of factory-installed HD Radio Technology across 2010 Mercedes-Benz models equipped with the brand’s premium feature packages.
The newest generations of Mercedes-Benz automobiles offering this superior in-vehicle digital upgrade include the 2010 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Coupe, E-, CL-, CLS-, S- and SLK-Class vehicles.
In August 2008, Mercedes-Benz first announced its commitment to offer HD Radio Technology as a factory-installed option on several of the 2009 model-year vehicles, including the M-, R-, GL-, G-Class SUVs and E-Class vehicles.
Doubling its HD Radio Technology offering, in March 2009, Mercedes-Benz expanded the availability of the digital technology beyond the originally announced five models in adding five model-year 2010 vehicles, including the CL-, CLS-, E-Class Coupe (formerly CLK), S-, and SLK-Class models.
Currently, five of the newest Mercedes-Benz models offer HD Radio Technology as part of a premium features package and five more models will have HD Radio Technology as standard equipment (CL, CLS, G, S, and SLK).
iBiquity has also announced that the 2010 Rolls-Royce model lineup will integrate HD Radio Technology as standard equipment, including the highly regarded 2010 Rolls-Royce Phantom Series.
The HD Radio platform enables radio broadcasters to program new channels with unique content in crystal-clear digital sound. There are currently more than 2,000 stations in the country broadcasting in digital, with over 1,000 HD2/HD3 multicast channels.
