Advertising In Fayetteville Radio In New CarsIn 2020, there were 17,494 new cars and trucks registered in the Fayetteville metro area. This number is based on projections from the National Auto Dealers Associaton (NADA) and the U.S. Census bureau.

In all, says NADA, there are 249 new-car dealerships in North Carolina. Despite the pandemic, these dealers, including those in the Fayetteville area, sold $20.1 billion worth of new vehicles.

Through June of this year, these same dealers have already rung up $17 billion in new car sales.

When it comes to buying new vehicles, Fayetteville consumers have a broad range of preferences. Some buyers want Fords while others want Chevrolets, Toyotas, or Teslas.  Some buyers want pick-up trucks, while others want sub-compacts, SUVs, or sports cars. Of course, some want blue vehicles, while others want pearl white, orchard green, or redolent red.

There is one purchase criterion, however, that most Fayetteville car buyers can agree on. They want an AM/FM radio smack-dab, in the middle of their dash.

According to new findings by Edison Research, 89% of car buyers in the U.S. want AM/FM radio to be standard in every vehicle. This study was released as part of the WorldDAB Summit. 

The study also reveals:

  • Over 80% of consumers are less likely to buy or lease a new car without a built-in radio tuner.
  • 91% of buyers want access to in-car radio to remain free
  • The most desired radio features among car buyers include voice control and content informationAdvertise In Fayettville Resources

Drivers, including those in Fayetteville, are serious about their car radios. In another study released last year by Edison, drivers said that AM/FM radio is what they use most often while on the road.

Car radios came to Fayetteville in June of 1930. For just $120, about $1200 in present dollars, local drivers could install these early mobile devices into their Fords, Studebakers, Packards, and DeSotos, 

The first car radios were built by the Galvin Manufacturing Company of Chicago. They named their invention, and eventually their company, Motorola.

Today, more than 267,000 car radios fill the ears of area drivers with music, news, sports, and information. And if Fayetteville consumers have their way, every new car that comes of the assembly will continue to have an AM/FM radio installed in the dash.
