Why Wouldn't A Car Come With A Cd Player?
Technology is fast changing the way we do things! What used to trend ten years ago no longer does. This is one of the reasons why many newly manufactured cars do not have factory-installed CD players. CD players are gradually becoming obscure. It has also been reported that many Americans are no longer buying CDs as they used to. Many prefer using their digital devices to view whatever they want to view. So, this could mean bad business if car manufacturers do not up their games. It has also been reported that Ford Motor Company did offer to roll out vehicles without a CD player, and this is something the company hasn’t done in twenty-five years! According to the report, Ford Motor Company will find a very good alternative for the CD player in vehicles.
When Did This Start?
According to a report gathered from an online media, many of the new cars without CD players started coming into the market in the year 2016. Car manufacturers like Honda and Toyota started manufacturing vehicles with no CD players. Also, according to a research firm, more than 45% of cars sold in the United States of America won’t come with CD players by the year 2021. One of the implications of this is that, in no time, this will be the trending thing in many nations of the world. You will remember how we had the phasing out of the cassette player, so, gradually, the world will also phase out the use of cars without a CD player! It’s important you get yourself to become mentally prepared for this change.
