Caution. Hybrid vent location.

Recommended Posts

Had my granddaughter in her ISO fix seat today. She undressed her Teddy, then stuffed his clothes and him down the side of her seat blocking the Hybrid fan cooling vent. No problems caused as it was a short journey. Seems a bit of a daft place to locate it. Higher up under the small window would be far better.

But possibly not as efficient?

The batteries need lots of cool air but maybe higher up with more ducting would reduce the airflow.

Then why not vent them from outside?

Cabin air is going to be a more constant temperature maybe that's better for the batteries? They seem to perform better in the summer months

    1. 1. If you were to consider buying a Hybrid model over 5 years old, would you be worried about the reliability of the Hybrid system?


      • Not really as Hybrid systems are always reliable
      • Not if it had a Manufacturers Warranty on the Hybrid system
      • I would not buy a Hybrid model over 5 years old
