How often do you wash your car? Do you own a white colored one? You've got lots of upkeep to do! But if Nissan's initiatives prove to be great, then we'll want its technology too. The automaker is proposing a tech to keep your car's body as clean as possible.
Their tech is called "Ultra-Ever Dry" and uses an "innovative nano-paint technology" that repels mud, rain and everyday dirt. The problem with coatings is that they have to be re-applied after some time. Nissan says their "Ultra-Ever Dry" is a one-time application.
The paint application could make car washes obsolete! The automaker is currently testing the super-hydrophobic and oleophobic paint which will create a protective layer of air between the paint and the elements from external sources.
The tech has responded well to common use cases including rain, spray, frost, sleet and standing water.

Recovering costs is something that careful and insured drivers should do after uninsured drivers have caused or contributed to accidents. The issue can be serious for drivers that are faced with repair costs when they did not cause the damage in the first place. Read more
