A future that includes a whole lot of electric cars is finally starting to come into view. But with that advance, we may lose something from the past. Your old radio is about to get Wolfman Jacked. It turns out that AM radio is running on fumes. Tesla, BMW, Audi, Porsche, Volvo … even the new Ford F-150 Lightning will be dropping AM radio. “Carmakers say that electric vehicles generate more electromagnetic interference than gas-powered cars, which can disrupt the reception of AM signals and cause static, noise and a high-frequency hum. (FM signals are more resistant to such interference.)” AM radio can be useful in the case of emergencies and there’s still plenty of great content. AM is all right now, in fact, it’s a gas, gas, gas. But only gas. NYT (Gift Article): In a Future Filled With Electric Cars, AM Radio May Be Left Behind.
