Imagine being in a car that allows you to subscribe to the features you want instead of visiting a dealership to get them. On top of that, you would also be able to get system updates, sync with your cloud playlists, weather updates, assisted driving, among others.
Well, that’s what car manufacturers are seeking to do as they push to create connected vehicles.
They are essentially turning cars into computers that we can drive and get a far better user experience.
It's all understandable because users' needs have expanded beyond moving from point A to point B and accelerating to certain speeds in seconds. The ability to connect the vehicle to one’s devices as well as the internet will soon be a necessity rather than a luxury.
