Two more automakers plan to offer HD Radio in their vehicles - Hyundai and Jaguar - making BMW no longer the sole automaker publicly doing so.

Hyundai will offer HD Radio on its rear-wheel drive premium sports sedan scheduled for introduction in 2008 as will Jaguar in its redesigned 2008 XJ Sedan.

HD Radio receivers are an option in the Jaguar with a list price of $500.

“In 2005, Hyundai broke an industry barrier by announcing it would be the first automaker to standardize satellite radio in all of our vehicles,” stated John Krafcik, vice president of Strategic Planning and Product Development, Hyundai Motor America. “By adding the option of HD Radio reception to our new premium sports sedan we will continue to provide Hyundai customers with the latest digital technology to enhance the driving experience.”

No price was announced for the HD Radio option by Hyundai.
