Yeah, agree or not decisions were made for a reason, I prefer the roominess. Plus this has the advantage, you can't easily trim down a seat to make more room in the cab, but it's trivial to add padding or other additions to make it more comfortable.I have done some 5 hour trips with no discomfort. (Different strokes ...) The thinner padding was done on purpose to increase interior roominess.
It's more intriguing than that. I find the Bolt driver's seat comfortable in every respect, and I do not have the best back in the world.I definitely understand that a lot of people like the seats. From what I can tell the problem only exists with about 1/3 of the Bolts..
Back problems are rampant in developed nations, there's a reason for it. Check out the "Balance" method, or "Aplomb" in France. The problem is probably less your lumbar and more your sacrum/L6 region - which is then messing up your lumbar. They also have studied how to sit in cars and have a fix for that. Worked for me, lifelong back problems gone.who does have the best back in the world, suffers in the driver seat, in the lumbar area primarily. I am guessing the designers created the shape that, instead of being an "OK" compromise for 99% of people, is great for 65-70% of us and causes problems to the rest of the drivers.
