Audiovox is entering the category of aftermarket seat heaters as a new profit category for retailers in colder regions of the U.S.
“Our entrée into the category gives our dealers in cold weather states, which make up a big portion of the country, with an additional profit opportunity,” said Audiovox Electronics President Tom Malone. He added, “Seat heaters have emerged as a growing category in the aftermarket and this new line should give our dealers enough options to supply most consumer requests for the product.”
The units come with carbon fiber heater pads—one for the seat cushion and one for the seat back– offered in a few different sizes at suggested retail prices from $119 to $159.
