GM Expands XM As Standard on All 2008 Buick, HUMMER and Saab Models

October 26, 2007

WASHINGTON - XM Satellite Radio, the nation's leading provider of satellite radio, announced that XM Radio is a standard feature for the first time on all General Motors 2008 model year Buick, HUMMER, and Saab vehicles.

XM is also now widely standard across many of the most popular vehicles in the Saturn, Chevrolet, GMC and Pontiac lineups, including: the all-new 2008 Chevrolet Malibu, Silverado, Tahoe, Cobalt, Corvette and Impala; Saturn VUE, OUTLOOK, AURA and SKY; GMC Acadia, Yukon, and Sierra; and Pontiac G5 and Solstice models among others.

Cadillac was the first automotive brand to offer XM as a standard feature. In total, XM is available today on more than 50 model year 2008 GM vehicles sold through thousands of GM dealerships nationwide.

GM was the world's first automaker to offer satellite radio as a factory-installed feature when it introduced XM on Cadillac models in 2001. GM has produced more than six million vehicles with XM.

"XM looks forward to offering our unmatched music, sports and talk programming to all Buick, HUMMER and Saab buyers," said Steve Cook, executive vice president, Automotive, XM Satellite Radio. "This expansion will continue XM's outstanding growth in the new car market that will provide us with sustained subscriber growth for 2008 and beyond."

"XM Satellite Radio has been one of the most successful entertainment offerings ever launched by General Motors," said Rick Lee, General Motors executive director. "The XM service has broad appeal, with a growing number of our customers asking for the service in their new car or truck. In the 2008 model year, General Motors will build more than 2.5 million vehicles with XM."

Every new General Motors vehicle with factory-installed XM comes standard with a complimentary three month trial subscription. An XM Radio trial program is also available to GM Certified Used Vehicles, Cadillac Certified Pre-Owned Vehicles, and HUMMER Certified Pre-Owned Vehicles, making the program available to buyers of both new and certified used models equipped with XM.
