Heated and ventilated seat system for the 2011 Kia Sportage

The 2011 KIA Sportage, a compact Sport Utility Vehicle (SUV) known for its styling and wide range of interior amenities, will receive heated and ventilated seat system from Amerigon Incorporated, a leader in developing and marketing products based on advanced thermoelectric (TE) technologies. It's one of the innovative applications used by the Kia Sportage.

The Amerigon heated and ventilated seat system combines passive cooling or ventilation with active heating. The driver and the passenger are allowed to individually and actively control the heating and the cooling of their respective seats, adapting the temperature to all the four seasons.

"We have established a strong relationship with KIA through our Climate Control Seat systems technology. We view KIA's selection of our heated and ventilated system for its new Sportage SUV as an endorsement of the success and value of our products." said Amerigon President and Chief Executive Officer Daniel R. Coker.

The Amerigon heated and ventilated seat system is also offered on the KIA Mohave and KIA Borrego . The Kia Opirus offers Amerigon's proprietary Climate Control Seat (CCS) system which delivers actively controlled heated or cooled air to a seat occupant.
