Ventilated Seats

130

Now Implemented!

Description

With seats that have perorations, a fan blows air from the floor up through the cushion. See

Competitive/Pricing/Notes

Available on some makes. Note that this a different, lower-cost feature than seat cooling, where the seat actually sends cold air through the cushion.

Status

Some Model S/X years offered the feature, then it was removed.  It has reappeared again in the new mid-year 2021 S/X.

I have it in my X. It doesn't do much.

For "Seems to be the same as Seat Cooling", it is different. Ventilated seats only use a fan (and is cheaper to implement), while seat cooling  combines a fan and cooling, typically with a thermoelectric cooler.  Both require a perforated seat covering.

Seems to be the same as Seat Cooling. Should the two items be merged and votes accumulated?

The Lexus LS460 has a package for $1300 which includes a heated/ventilated/cooled seat. It works great. Perfect after a workout when it's hot out.

In a hot climate seat cooling does help, altho' not as much as seat heating. Had these in my Lexus in Australia. Quite good.
