I've driven a few cars that have them now and it makes a huge difference for my sweaty back. In our current Leaf and Volvo C40 we use wooden seat covers to make them bearable this very humid summer for SoCal.

I'm sure the Venture+ FWD trim level I selected in January doesn't, but do any trim levels have ventilated/cooled seats? I don't see anything on the spec comparisons mentioning this.

Of course, summer is almost over for most of the US, but it will be around for another 2+ months here.

Thanks!

Edit: I should have searched for "cooled" seats as well. Yep, the Platinum+ has it per Nissan's website. This might just take the Ariya out of the running for me, with the higher pricing and the presumably lost tax credit. 2nd Edit: I upgraded my reservation to the Evolve+ but yeah, no cooled seats as well. The Venture+ was Right Out at this point, for me.

Platinum+ is the only trim I am interested as it compares favorably to the Lyriq, Genesis GV60, Ioniq 5 Limited. It's $58K and in the same price range as those and the GV60 and Ioniq 5 Limited both have ventilated seats.

This was before the tax credit mess... Now with it phased out the Lyriq seems like the best value (when originally it was possibly the worst - until specs were released).

The Platinum+ has ventilated seats -- that and e4orce dampening of inertia is why I changed the trim level for my preorder. But in all likelihood, I will not be taking delivery of the Ariya.
1. No true e-Pedal / one-pedal driving
2. Now costs $7500 more
3. No idea when it is arriving.

I had an Evolve+ on order -- but the "Ramen delivery" demonstration of e4orce and a test-drive in an EV6 with ventilated seats got me to upgrade the order in case Nissan fixes the one-pedal driving.

Most likely getting the Mustang Mach-E instead with no ventilated seats, but much cheaper price and true one-pedal driving.

Yeah, Nissan should have had this hitting our shores no later than a year ago. They and Toyota. Japan, in general, is well behind the 8 ball on BEVs.
