At WWDC, Apple announced that siri would be featured in cars sometime in the next year. They've formed partnerships with nine automakers:
Audi
BMW
Chrysler
General Motors
Honda
Hyundai
Land Rover / Jaguar
Mercedes-Benz
Toyota
This is a pretty intense line up for automakers partnering with Apple. These automakers are responsible for 58.4% of all car sales worldwide.

Apple has said that siri will be able to perform many functions like handling duties like turn-by-turn navigation, voice command, text messages, phone calls and even online notifications.

AFAIK, all this means is that the manufacturers are adding a button which will tell your iPhone to listen to you, the same way the front button press wakes up Siri today.

The subsequent communication between you and Siri will then take place via the car's built in bluetooth mic and speakers.

So, not a huge deal to implement, but a nice payoff for the people driving the cars... now to get Siri to read and send emails...
