As technology and social media continues to make a serious impact in everyone's lives, automakers are seeing a shift in the way consumers perceive the automobile.

What do I mean by this?

Connectivity is going to come to the car. That's because people don't want their lives to stop when they get into their car to commute to work, or take a trip. Why else do you think people can't stop texting on their mobiles and why 001's spotted folks using iPads whenever they can?

With that said, manufacturers are charged with finding ways to integrate this newfound technolust into autos in the safest and cleanest way possible. One of those automakers is Mercedes-Benz who, in this video, takes the time out to tell us all about their connectivity plans in the A-Class Concept.

And in true German fashion, they've nicknamed millenials "digital natives."

The vision for the future: connectivity. Using the Mercedes-Benz Concept A-CLASS as an example, we show you the future of multimedia online systems.
