Infrared Heating System

4

Description

An infrared heating system for vehicle occupants. The benefits:
1. quick on/off
2. save hugely on energy (added range)
3. very nice experience (like sitting in a Spring sun)
4. no air circulation needed so quieter operation of the car

Competitive/Pricing/Notes

BMW has been working on a system like this.

Moderator: Interesting system, but it’s unclear if there would be any significant gains in range. They also require a heat pump (with compressor, fans, etc., so it sounds significantly more expensive to produce).  In the photo, I wonder how you avoid burning your arm?  Since no one has put it into production, I suspect it’s far from ready for prime time yet.
