Nissan develops first "self-cleaning" car prototype with innovative nano-paint technology [video]

We all know washing a car takes time and is also quite costly, depending on where you do it.

What if we don’t have to wash our car never again and it is always just as clean, when it rolled off the production line?

Nissan is testing an innovative nano-paint technology on a Note prototype which repels dirt, with a potential making car washes obsolete.

The innovative paint technology repels mud, rain and everyday dirt, meaning drivers may never have to clean their car again.

The specially engineered super-hydrophobic and oleophobic paint, which repels water and oils, has been applied to the all-new Nissan Note, which is now being tested over the coming months in a variety of conditions.

The technology called Ultra-Ever Dry creates a protective layer of air between the paint and environment and effectively stops standing water and road spray from creating dirty marks on the car’s surface.
