"Expanding the market for our seat system to international automotive manufacturers has always been an important initiative for us. While Land Rover has been a customer since 2007, the fact that they will continue to offer CCS in their new design and have added the rear seats is a testament to the system's value and appeal. We look forward to continuing our partnership with Land Rover's design and engineering teams," Amerigon President and Chief Executive Officer Daniel R. Coker said.
The Climate Control Seat system works independently of the heating and air conditioning system of the car so it does not reduce engine power. It also emits no CFCs or other gases and is completely friendly to the environment, the company said in a release.
The 2010 Range Rover is offered with a choice of two engines, a 5.0-liter V8 supercharged developing 510 bhp and 461 lb-ft of torque and a 5.0-liter V8 naturally-aspirated unit producing 375 bhp and 375 lb-ft of torque.
Both engines are developed in-house by Jaguar Land Rover and were especially designed to deliver more power while remaining focused on fuel consumption and gas emissions. Both engines are compliant with the stringent U.S. ULEV2 emissions regulations.
