Nissan shows off its new self cleaning car concept

As far as the weather is bearable outside, car washing can become a good activity and even enjoyable for some. But when it comes to the scorching summer heat or the freezing cold in winters, this is one task which we keep putting off and dread the most. And this also becomes a problem for those who park on the streets or don’t have access to a hose and soapy water. Well, it seems like Nissan has been working hard to take care of our problems. With its new "super-hydrophobic" paint that will repel dirt, water, and oil, the company wants to give us a car which certainly doesn’t need much cleaning to do.

Over the next few months, this new paint technology is going to be tested in Europe under various conditions. All this testing is carried out in hope of getting a positive result so drivers no longer have to worry about cleaning their cars. If this works out, it will most certainly be a huge achievement for Nissan because it is the first auto maker to make use of the Ultra-Ever Dry paint. This is how the paint works, it creates a protective layer of air between the painted surface and the environment and it is quite tough against rain, spray, frost, sleet, and standing water.

According to Geraldine Ingham, the Chief Marketing Manager for Nissan Note, "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."

If you want to make new friends  – or get in touch with old ones – get a Nissan NV200 Compact Cargo. It seems like everybody has something they want to buy, move, donate or dump that’s too big for a car, too grungy for a leather-lined SUV and too personal for an open-air pickup. Actually, the NV200 is really made for small businesses, and it’s a great choice. What surprised us was, that along with the well-thought out functionality, the little Nissan Cargo Van is ...
