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.

The tech has responded well to common use cases including rain, spray, frost, sleet and standing water.
