      2021 Inscription T8 vs T6 climate control differences

      Configuring a 2021 Inscription in the online configuration, and it looks like on the T6 that 4 Zone Electronic Climate Control is standard. But on the T8 (recharge) that 2 Zone Electronic Climate Control is standard and there does not seem to be an option to upgrade this to 4 zone. Is this correct? Was this the case in prior model years, too?

      Just answered my own question, yes, that's always been the case.

      For anyone searching, it's the case for all T8 trims. Took me by surprise, but I'm guessing the vent ducts were taken up for more battery space (just a guess).

      Dumb question - but does 2 zone mean there are only separate zone for the 2 front passengers? Back passengers don't get their own vents?

      I think they get vents but they get the settings from the corresponding front seat.

      It’s so simple, everything explained 2-zone climate vs 4-zone climate

      The vents for the rear on the T8 are on the B pillars.
