World's first self-cleaning car is here

Posted on Apr 25 2014 | IANS

London, April 25 : What if your car never gets dirty even when you come back home after a long countryside drive? Possible.

Japanese car-maker Nissan has unveiled a 'self-cleaning' car with 'nano-paint technology' that repels dirt before it gets a chance to take hold on the paintwork.

"The Nissan 'Note' is the first car to trial paint technology which could make car washes obsolete," a company spokesperson was quoted as saying.

The 'super-hydrophobic' and 'oleophobic' paint also repels water and oils, media reports said.

According to a company press release, "by creating a protective layer of air between the paint and environment, the technology effectively stops standing water and road spray from creating dirty marks on the car's surface".

The 'Ultra-Ever Dry' technology may cost around USD 750 (Rs.45,000).
