Apple seem to be firing on absolutely all cylinders.

PSFK.com is reporting that carmaker Mercedes-Benz has unveiled plans to integrate Apple’s Siri into its A-Class electronics system.

The Siri integration will allow drivers access to their iPhone apps using voice commands.

The program, called the Drive Kit Plus will work in conjunction with Mercedes-Benz’s Digital DriveStyle App to translate the iPhone’s screen onto the in-car system screen.

Drivers will be able to listen to music, change radio channels, update status on social networks, and send text messages. The Drive Kit Plus will come preinstalled with popular apps such as Twitter, Facebook, and Aupeo Personal Radio. Users can then add and control other apps via their iPhones.

Mercedes-Benz is the first carmaker to integrate the Apple’s technology into a vehicle’s  electronic platform.

The new feature is said to be scheduled to debut in the 2012 Geneva auto show next month.
