Abstract (en)

[origin: GB2422305A] A vehicle seat assembly comprises a seat (10), at least one rail (18) to which the seat (10) is slidably connected allowing the seat (10) to slide in a longitudinal direction forward and backward along the rail (18), a locking mechanism to retain the seat (10) at a selected desired position along the rail (18), and at least one biasing device (22) that applies a permanent force to the seat (10) such that the seat (10) is urged in a forward direction when the locking mechanism is disengaged. The biasing device may be a gas spring which expands to assist the forward seat movement and emulate the electronic seat assist mechanisms used in other vehicles.
