Opel Embeds Apple’s Siri in Adam
At the Geneva Motor Show this week Opel announced that its city car ADAM will be available with support for Siri, Apple’s voice recognition system, starting in April 2013.

Owners connect their iPhone 4S or iPhone 5 (iOS 6) with the IntelliLink infotainment system via Bluetooth, pair with the system, and use the steering wheel voice activation button to begin and end sessions with Siri in Eyes Free mode.

The following tasks can be performed hands-free:
- Make voice-activated, hands-free calls to Contacts on their iPhone
- Play songs in their iTunes libraries
- Listen to, and compose and send an iMessage or text message to a phone number or anyone in saved Contacts
Access Calendar and add appointments

ADAM has been available since January and Opel said that “Just one week after the Opel ADAM market launch, orders from all across Europe for the chic, urban car have already exceeded 20,000 – with most of them placed in Germany.“
