DAB+ in all cars in Europe as of 2021
The real inception of DAB+ radio might be 2021. The new European Electronic Communications Code states that the radio set within any new car either sold or rented in the EU will be DAB+ enabled. This should be applicable within 2 years. At this stage, DAB is still marginal: according to the CIM Establishment Survey 2017-2018 only 6% of Belgians aged 18 and older claimed to listen to a DAB car radio.
