Honda will be the first to provide a line of pet-friendly front seats.
If your pet is bored or scared to stay in their carries in the backseat, Honda thought of a way out. And will now provide your pet with a premium experience based on a new line of pet co-pilot front seats.
If you're not sure what other amenities you should add to your Honda, you should know that the automaker now has something for your pets. Pet Co-Pilot Front Seat, a new line of front passenger seats for dogs, will allow them to sit in the front seat with you.
The features will be available beginning April 1, 2022, with the initial edition aimed towards dogs, who are most likely to accompany you on your travels.
The brand will soon introduce a cat model, as well as fish, hamsters, and guinea pigs. The front seats, which were designed with each animal in mind, will ensure that our beloved pets receive the best view in the automobile while remaining near to their human parents.
The following are the Dog Co-Pilot Front Seat options available, according to the manufacturer: Seat bolsters to keep your dog safe in the front seat, spill-proof bowl holders, air-con vents built into the seat to keep your dog cool, ISOFIX hooks for dog harness attachment, and even a harness with Honda's name on it.
Bowl holder inserts, a glovebox treat dispenser with a snout-activated button, a bowl split 50/50 between meals and goodies, and a changeable in-built squeaker or toy stitched into the seat are all options.
This new option is in response to rising customer demand surrounding travel choices for their pets, said Annie Mal, Honda's head of Pet Products. Pet owners want to take their pets with them on vacation more than ever, and we've designed an alternative that not only allows but also encourages them to do so.
The Pet Co-Pilot Front Seat allows owners to be closer to their favorite pet when traveling across the UK and Europe for holidays, short trips to the shops, or a day out. It also frees up space on the hard drive.
The good news is that the new features will be available not only for new models, but also for cars constructed between April 2017 and March 2022, and will be available through Honda dealerships.
A Large or Exotic Pet Co-Pilot Front Seat, as well as a Horse Co-Pilot Front Seat, will be available starting in 2024. Can you imagine seeing a horse head through the sunroof of a Honda?
And, as entertaining as a Pet Co-Pilot Front Seat sounds, it's not what we (or Honda) have been smoking lately. It's all a joke on April Fool's Day. But, we must admit, it's a rather inventive one.
