With internet-connected infotainment systems becoming mainstream, Mercedes is aiming to be one of first automakers to offer an app store.

Speaking with Automotive News Europe, Mercedes design chief Gorden Wagener said "... we can imagine developing a so-called 'Mercedes App Store,' with apps that make the life of the Mercedes driver even more comfortable." While he declined to go into specifics, Wagener revealed the app store would likely have to wait until a high-speed data infrastructure - likely 4G - can be established.
