XM Satellite Radio will unveil the XM Advanced Services vehicle, a concept car featuring in-car video, voice command and weather alerts, next week.

The XM Advanced Services vehicle is a specially-equipped 2006 Lexus LX 470 to be displayed at the Consumer Electronic Show Jan. 5-8 in the Las Vegas Convention Center's North Hall.

The XM Advanced Services vehicle will showcase in-car video with XM's partner On2 Technologies, as well as an array of other new technologies, all of which can be delivered directly to the automobile by XM's network of satellites and ground repeaters, the same satellite delivery system XM employs to broadcast its 160 channels of commercial-free music and premier sports, news and talk radio, the company said.
