Now they just need to bring back the active spoiler. Then my unicorn X becomes a horse I guess.
Oh no, the active spoiler was gone on the car? The ventilated seat return is huge!
It's probably my imagination, but are the seats now thicker?
In my location (Arizona), ventilated seats would be huge... but not willing to jump up to P pricing to get.
Maybe an option for X100D soon?
Do existing P100D orders that aren't yet in production get upgraded to this, anyone know? Similar to other interior update from a couple weeks back?
Yes. I spoke to my delivery specialist today. Apparently it's a marketing thing so that the P models get more than red brakes, kickboards, and blistering speed. I am kind of annoyed about that. I even said I'd pay more!
Edit: I quoted the wrong post. To clarify, my delivery specialist said this is not coming to anything but the P models. Which again is irksome! So if you ordered a P that has yet to be produced, ventilated seats shall be yours. Everyone else will not be so lucky.
I will let you know if I have ventilated seats next week. My car went into production this week and they are scheduling delivery the 25th or 26th.
I wonder if the ventilated seats being in p100d have something to do with p100d having only black seats now, given they don’t make vented seats (anymore) in white or cream. I wonder why the vented seat change didn’t come at the same time as the interior update (oak wood etc), they’re so close yet in time.
Can anyone comment on the original vented seat’s usefulness in practice or implementation ? Electrek linked a couple older reviews that seemed less than favourable. Do they have rubber tubing with holes, like a garden irrigation line, or rigid conduits with fans? Trapped elves with straws?
Famous Tesla youtube Bjorn had ventilated seats in his Model X that were completely torn up after 50-60k miles. I think the reason Tesla discontinued them in the first place because they were not holding up in longevity. Based on my experience with ventilated seats in other luxury cars, I dont like them. The comfort they provide is not worth the cosmetic sacrifice IMO.
Correction/edit: I thought the p100ds were now black interior only, and maybe they were for that period between oak wood’s intro and ventilated seats, but as the thread title says, black and white now.
My Delivery Specialist informed me that my P100D order, that was going into production soon, would not be getting the ventilated seats.
If I were you, I would cancel and see if i can get the deposit transferred. IMO, the ventilated seats should be worth it
I am so glad I dont have the ventilated seats. I am sure my wife will spill something and I dont need it going into the holes on the seat. Plus my truck has them and I never use them so they seem like something that just shortens the life of the seat material.
Don't worry, I'm way ahead of you on that.
According to the training my OA received:
The old design was taken away because the performance was lacking. This design is much improved.
The perforations are only in the middle of the seats and not on the side bolsters.
The perforation (hole) design has been totally reworked.
The 2nd and 3rd rows will also have perforations to match the fronts, but with no air flow mechanism.
The design draws (sucks) heat away.
Did they let you transfer the deposit?
Love my ventilated seats in my Infiniti during summer and after the gym.
My kids and wife have spilled go-gurt on my previous X with black ventilated seats. It was a horrible mess that I was never able to get cleaned.
