Many of the vehicle manufacturers are working on self driving cars, and now Nissan has developed a self cleaning car, using some new paint technology that they are developing.
Nissan are using some new nano-paint technology, which is apparently capable of repelling, water, oils, and they have tested out this paint on their new Nissan Note.
To assess the real-world effectiveness of the super-hydrophobic as a potential aftermarket application, engineers at Nissan Technical Centre Europe will be testing the self-cleaning Note over the coming months in a variety of conditions.
Nissan is the first carmaker to apply the technology, called Ultra-Ever Dry®, on automotive bodywork. By creating a protective layer of air between the paint and environment, it effectively stops standing water and road spray from creating dirty marks on the car’s surface.
Nissan plan to test out this new self cleaning paint on their vehicles over the next few months, and if the test go well, it could be used in future vehicles, you can find out more details over at Nissan at the link below.
