Posted on 17. Nov, 2007 by in 2000-2009, 9-5, Innovations


The ventilated seat in a car is a world’s first for Saab Automobile and this innovation was first implemented in the Saab 9-5 and continues to be available as an option today.

The new Saab 9-5 continues to offer heated seats as an option, both for the front and rear occupants. But, when the weather is hot and sticky, the Saab 9-5’s optional electrically-ventilated seats are there to deliver maximum comfort.

The innovative ventilated seat option for the Saab 9-5 is an auto industry first. Two flat electric fans in each front seatÑone in the seatback and one in the lower cushion-extract warm, humid air that is normally trapped between the person and the seat upholstery. The fans operate in three operator-set speed modes, drawing warm air through the perforated seat leather and venting underneath the seat.

The heated and ventilated seats contribute to safe driving by keeping the driver more comfortable and alert especially on long trips. Previously used only for premium buses, trucks and construction equipment, where driver alertness is particularly critical, this is the first time that power-ventilated seats have been offered in a passenger car.
