No AM radio on 2021 VW?

No - I have an EV [Chevy Bolt] and AM is fine. Not having AM in the
car is strange - there are still very rural places where there's not
much FM. I suppose there's always SiriusXM if you pony up for
it. And of course music on your phone or thumb-drive or
whatever. Yes, AM is dying, but it's not dead yet.
GM car radios don't have HD-FM [well, my 2017 doesn't], since they
want to sell you SiriusXM.....

Could it be that the electronics / motor(s) generate so much electrical
noise that the AM band is unlistenable ?
