More automakers are recognizing that they don't need the cigarette lighter feature anymore. And like the cassette player, it is finding its fate completely disappearing from the automotive industry.
Hyundai has decided that the cigarette lighter has to go in order to free up space for USB ports, according to a report from the Financial Times.
