I remember reading Subaru's April Fools day prank about a cars self-cleaning function, but who knew that Nissan would take things very seriously and start testing an innovative paint technology that promises to repel mud, dirt and rain.
The people at Nissan have applied this "super-hydrophobic and oleophobic paint" to a Note prototype and plan to begin testing it at their European Technical Centre. The results of which will determine its real-world effectiveness as a potential aftermarket application.
It has been called the "Ultra-Ever Dry," which creates a protective layer of air between the paint and the environment. According to the folks at Nissan, the paint effectively stops standing water and road spray from creating dirty marks on the car's surface."
According to Note Chief Marketing Manager Geraldine Ingham, "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."
