Default Type-inferring a constant in C#

In C#, the following type-inference works:

var s = "abcd";
But why can't the type be inferred when the variable is a constant?

The following throws a compile-time exception mobdro:

const var s = "abcd"; // <= Compile time error: 
                      //    Implicitly-typed local variables cannot be constant
