Delphi Ships 15th Million Satellite Receiver
Delphi Corp. has shipped more than 15 million satellite receivers to retailers and vehicle manufacturers, the company announced July 24.
Delphi introduced factory-installed satellite radio receivers to the automotive market in the United States in 2001 and launched the first retail mobile satellite receiver in 2002. Today, the company produces receivers for more than 10 vehicle manufacturers, supporting both XM Satellite Radio and Sirius Satellite Radio.
"In just a few years, Delphi hardware helped satellite radio grow from an emerging niche media to become an option available on more than 60 percent of new vehicles sold in the [United States]," Ken Erickson, lead executive for Delphi’s entertainment and communications product business unit, said in a statement.
