“There has been a steady increase in the number of new cars that are available with a digital radio fitted as standard or available as an option.

“In September 2010, just over 5% of new cars had digital as standard. By September this year the proportion had increased to 18% – still a long way from our target of having all new cars available with digital radio by the end of 2013, but good progress.

“The bigger challenge and commercial opportunity are the 31 million vehicles already on our roads, which will require some aftersales adaptation or retro-fit to receive digital radio.
