Nissan announces self-cleaning car for European market

Posted Apr 26, 2014

Nissan has announced that the new Nissan Note will be the first car to have Ultra-Ever Dry paint, which is a protective layer of air between the paint and the environment. This paint is hydrophobic and oleophobic, giving the car the ability to face off against rain, spray, sleet, frost and standing water. The paint was developed by UltraTech International.

?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,? said Nissan Note chief marketing manager Geraldine Ingram.

Nissan does not plan on making the paint a standard feature yet, but it could be an add-on feature for buyers. This feature will be available on the Nissan Note exclusive to Europe when it launches. Sadly, it is unknown if or when it will be added to vehicles in the U.S.
