Anybody know if our vehicles are going to have vented/cooled seats?

As far as heat goes, Tesla is going to what is equivalent to a heat pump...far more efficient than standard heating for vehicles. Do we know if Rivian has any plans to go this route, too?

Unless they reinvented cooling tech for seats, electric fans will produce the "cooling air", which is great for your butt and lower back, but rarely does any good in cooling your WHOLE body down like HVAC vented air from air vents.

While the vented seat doesn't cool your whole body, it does take the edge off when you get into a steaming hot car that has been in the sun for a while. Big fan of the cooled seats.
That can along with other related features can go a long way to help cool the cabin.
A simple one with some automakers is the ability to roll down all your windows by pressing and holding the unlock button on your fob (or some variation of it).
