XM Satellite Radio has announced that its service is a standard feature on certain models of Honda’s best- selling Accord for the 2004 model year. In addition to the Accord, all 2004 Honda S2000 roadsters will be shipped to dealers as “XM-ready,” later this year. The S2000 joins the Honda Pilot, which already is offered with XM as a dealer-installed option.
“It is exciting to see that Honda recognizes the mass market appeal of XM Satellite Radio and has elected to make it standard equipment on one of the best selling car models of all time,” said Hugh Panero, XM President and CEO.
Earlier this year, XM Satellite Radio announced the addition of XM as standard equipment on the 2004 Acura RL, which went on sale in March, and the all-new 2004 TL sedan, on sale this autumn.
“We’re pleased to be offering expanded availability of XM Satellite Radio to our customers,” said Tom Elliott, Senior Vice President of American Honda Co. “XM is another example of our commitment to equipping Honda and Acura products with the latest technology.”
