Nissan is testing a car that knows how to "be neat"

Nissan is testing a car that can “be neat” thanks to a paint finish that repels dirt and rain. Similar technologies will allow manufacturers to eventually get rid of windscreen wipers to combat dirt.

Meanwhile, the new coating will help keep the car interior tidy - something that is so necessary for parents of young children or those who are actively involved in sports.

Nissan technical center in Switzerland in the midst of testing specially prepared version of the Note model for the European market. A small hatchback has a special layer of Ultra-Ever Dry paint developed by UltraTech International Inc., which repels oil and water. This means that dirt, dust and oil will not stick to the sheet metal of the body of the car. Ultra-Ever Dry resists rain, frost and sleet, Nissan said after preliminary testing.

"Nissan Note has been carefully designed to ensure that there are no more raids after driving customers," said Geraldine Ingam, general manager of hatchback marketing. "We are committed to solving everyday problems of our customers and will always test advanced technologies such as this incredible coverage."

At the moment, the automaker says that it does not plan to introduce coverage as an integral function, but will consider it as an alternative after the sale.

A few years ago, Nissan developed the Scratch Shield technology for self-repairing car painting. In its manufacture, rubber is used, which, when exposed to sunlight, fills minor scratches within a few hours.

But few motorists wanted to pay for a special coating, so the manufacturer offers the technology only in some markets, not including the US.

Nissan is not the only automaker who has thought about hydrophobic coatings, which may be an interesting alternative to keep windshields clean.

British sports car manufacturer McLaren meanwhile uses the technology of fighters. The company is experimenting with a system using high-frequency sound waves to create a sound barrier that prevents water and dirt from getting onto the windshield.

In addition to cleanliness, automakers would like to remove a wiper to remove aerodynamic drag, which reduces vehicle fuel economy.
