I'm just curious about the Tesla seats. Are they designed with whiplash protection? Our Volvo has a very effective whiplash protection system with a breakaway pin that actually absorbs the rear impact energy and then snaps while also protecting your neck. Our Mercedes' seats are also designed with whiplash protection.
The Tesla seats I have tried are not as comfortable as the seats in our E550 or S80 and I remember Elon mentioning at the Norway townhall meeting that he agreed that the seats are lacking and will be redesigned. Just curious to see what whiplash protection capabilities the seats offer now. If the seats are going to be redesigned I hope they beef up the whiplash and neck protection capabilities. I love the "neck pillow" of the new generation W222 S550 :)
