For years, some people have used the Ford Fiesta to fold their car seats into their dashboards, but the carmaker has decided to offer a new option that folds the car seats back up in the car itself.
According to a new patent filing by Ford, its latest folding car seat will fold into the top of the dash, and allow for upholstering the seat back up when not in use.
The new folding seat is based on Ford’s Fiesta Flex and will be available in select 2018 models.
It’s expected to cost $250 less than the previous generation of Ford folding car seats, which came with a sliding panel behind the seats to allow for easier access to the seats.
The new folding car chair will feature an adjustable armrest, which will allow for adjustment of the backrest angle, the patent said.
The patent also showed that the folding car backrest can be adjusted to match the car’s weight.
The backrest of the new car seat, according to the patent, will have the same angle and can be positioned in a similar manner to the previous Ford folding chair.
The patent did not elaborate on what the back can do with the car.
Ford did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Ford has long offered a folding carback for its Fiesta, which has a top design that folds up into a car-like position.
Its predecessor, the Ford F150, had a sliding rear seat that allowed for a driver to easily maneuver the seat up and down, though it didn’t fold out the way that a car seat folds.
Ford’s new carback will not be available for the 2019 model year.
The first-generation folding car backs featured a sliding screen behind the seat and a small armrest that was easy to reach, according the patent.
The foldable car seats on the other hand are made with an adjustable hinge that allows the back to fold up or down, according Ford.
The design is easier to access than the current sliding screen and armrests, the filing said.
This carback can fold to the rear of the car or up the dash to the passenger seat, which makes the car seat much more usable, according one of the patent filing’s authors, John M. Riedel, a professor of civil and environmental engineering at the University of Texas at Austin.
Ford is planning to release the new folding Carback at the end of March for the 2018 model year, which begins with the 2018 Fiesta ST, according of the filing.
