    Death of the car wash? Nissan develops the world's first SELF-CLEANING car

    Nissan has unveiled its nanopaint technology that stops a car getting dirty
    First car to trial the paint, which costs £450 ($750), will be the Nissan Note


    • The 'super-hydrophobic' and 'oleophobic' paint repels water and oils [/B]Nissan says the technology 'could make car washes obsolete'

    Banish the bucket, sponge and hose. Japanese giant Nissan has developed the world’s first ‘self-cleaning car’ which it predicts will make car-washing ‘obsolete.’ Its UK engineers are testing innovative ‘nano-paint technology’ which repels dirt before it gets a chance to take hold on the paintwork.
    Scroll down for video...

    Nissan has been testing nanopaint technology that repels dirt before it sticks. Here you can see the split on the car, with the nanopaint being used on the right but not on the left, showing how it stopped dirt sticking

    For drivers who would rather run a mile than wipe down their dirty vehicles with a sponge or wince at the high cost of a car-wash, it means salvation may soon be at hand.
    It is set to be an option on future models but is being tested in Britain on the new Sunderland-built Nissan Note which went on sale in October priced from £12,100 to £17,100.
    No price has yet been set but it is likely to be around £450 ($750) – or similar to a metallic paint option.

    Thats quite an innovation!!

    Extremely Off Topic - Didnt the image posted above looks like the new Bolt/zest front look? Seems Tata is inspired from Nissan for new look on their new products.

    Nice info. Thanks for sharing.
    This will save a lot of time and efforts. Can it heal scratches too ?

    Not sure about the scratches. The nanopaint technology would repel the dirt . But if it get scratched there would be huge cost for repainting

    This technology would take long time to come India

    The thread title is a little misleading :)
