Nissan Self Cleaning Car Prototype

Nissan has started testing an innovative paint technology that will spare car owners from washing their own cars or taking it in to a car wash.The technology, which has been applied to a Note prototype, promises to repel mud, dirt and rain.

The world's first self cleaning car

Called "Ultra-Ever Dry," the coating works by creating a protective layer of air between the paint and the environment. In addition, it effectively stops standing water and road spray from creating dirty marks on the car's surface.

According to Note Chief Marketing Manager Geraldine Ingham, "The Nissan Note has been carefully engineered to take the stress out of customer driving and Nissan's engineers are constantly thinking of new ways to make families' lives easier.”

“We are committed to addressing everyday problems our customers face and will always consider testing exciting, cutting edge technology like this incredible coating application.”

Testing is said to begin at the company’s European Technical Centre to determine real-world effectiveness of the technology as a potential aftermarket application.
