News: BMW i3 electric car quirk: no AM radio offered, but why? (update)

: We first published this story in June 2015. More than two years later, we may have a partial explanation to the question posed in the title.

Perhaps BMW simply anticipated its inevitable decline, choosing not to make the effort to protect its audio system against interference with analog reception?]
