Apple CarPlay not to be a mainstream option in Mercedes Benz for fall 2014 vehicles

Published: 30 May 2014


Sources inside Mercedes Benz have confirmed that even though the 2015 C Class has a NTG 5 (the 5th generation of the Comand Infotainment system), Carplay will not be available at launch in the Fall of 2014.  It is likely that the technology is at least a year away from being a mainstream option.  There was absolutely no reference to Carplay in the Dealer Order Guide and the 2015 Model Preview published by Mercedes Benz Canada.

The 2015 W205 C-Class on display at the New York Autoshow had a fully functioning Carplay interface that did not look like Beta software at all. There is also a webpage dedicated to Carplay on the corporate MB website.

However, no information is released yet as to when might we see MB cars running with CarPlay as a must-have feature.
