No.

For *you* this might make sense and be a useful feature.  For me, I might
like it, but will never actually use it (because I'm way too lazy to be
interested in multiple possible Internet uplinks for my car - and why I
should bother to trade the nice *external* antenna of the car with the
great reception of a typical smartphone inside a large moving metal box).

For the typical driver who is already challenged pairing his mobile via
BT with his car's handsfree?  No go.  Do one thing, do it well, and NEVER
ask a car owner (or any normal Internet user) about technical decisions.
