Automotive Heated Seat Market: Introduction

  • Automotive heated seats are designed to provide heat through the seat in the vehicle. The seats provide warmth to the driver and passengers while driving in winters. The working principle of the heated seat is similar to that of the electric blanket and water heater, which uses electricity to generate heat. Heated seats are powered by a heating element, which consist of a long strip of material that acts as a resistor to resist the flow of electricity. When electric current flows thorough the heating element, the energy is converted into heat, which flows through the seat and provides warmth to the driver and passengers.
  • A thermostat measures the temperature of the heated seat and is fitted in the seat to avoid excess heating of seats. When the temperature reaches a preset level, sensors in the seat transmit a signal to switch off the power. General Motors first introduced the heated seat in their Cadillac model in 1965.
