Ford gets a patent for heated seat belts

Ford gets a patent for heated seat belts

Technology is ever evolving and car makers are usually in the race for firsts that can give them bragging rights. Like Volvo made seatbelts and Mercedes-S-Class got electronic ABS, Ford will probably be the first to offer heated seat belts in production cars.

Ford has filed a patent for their newest invention that basically embeds a heating element in the fabric and gets electricity supply when it is buckled in. Ford has devised multiple iterations of the design, all of which basically provide a similar outcome. The seat-belt wearer might get temperature control in some cases but will certainly have an on-off switch to turn the heating off in summer.

In especially cold areas like North America, Canada, Europe and Russia, where even a little heat from anywhere feels welcome, the heated seatbelts might become a USP for Ford cars. Ford has already decided to shift its product portfolio largely to SUVs - cars that are quite popular in extreme weather conditions.
