Supposedly the Model S refresh will be getting the Cooled seats of the Model X...maybe by then we will have that option for the model3. I would really like Tesla to put a rear seat fold down armrest in the S and 3
Cooled leather seats are awesome, it's like having ice water poured down your back
More so in the Outback, I would guess...
Cooled seats are only on the X at the moment.
... not really mate!
Outback gets hot, but it is fairly dry heat.
Western suburbs of Sydney can get 40+ degrees Celsius with high humidity.
Anyway, cooled seats would certainly be appreciated in both locations!
We know "Dry Heat" in Southern California too. It just happens 6 months different from when you guys get it.
Sorry AEDennis, but...
Slightly off topic, but black leather seats do get a mention...
I've been to Perth. It's cooler than Palm Springs. ou can always pre-condition the car so that it's cooler when you get in... @teslamotors Model S by Dennis Pascual, on Flickr
Most places use this for heating, in Southern California, we do it for cooling.It's more efficient to do it when the car is plugged into a power source, but fully capable of doing it without being plugged in.
I was only kidding in the above Dennis - I know that California has recently suffered under drought and heat just like Australia has done in the past. I find the constant breaking of new heat records all around the world very unsettling.
... and yes, I LOVE the A/C pre-cooling that is possible with the Tesla cars! I mentioned elsewhere that a CLEAN ventillatio system and powerful A/C is one of the things I really look forward to in the Model 3...
