Abstract

Air from a heating, ventilation, and air-conditioning ("HVAC") system is routed through a floor console rail system. The use of a floor rail system as conduits for the vehicle's HVAC system is configured to provide second and or third row air that has been heated, cooled, ambient, filtered, cleared, or the like. By coupling a vehicle's HVAC system to the front and rear ends of a floor rail extrusion, the HVAC system could forced air to the second and or third row passengers. Vents may be provided at any of a variety of positions along the floor rail system (e.g., on top, on the side, at the rear, etc.) and may be configured to be adjustable.
