Nissan develops self cleaning car

Imagine never having to pay for another car wash, Nissan is hoping to make that thought a reality.  The company has developed a paint called Ultra-Ever Dry that is touted as being “self-cleaning” for cars.  The paint is being developed by UltraTech International.


“By creating a protective layer of air between the paint and environment, it effectively stops standing water and road spray from creating dirty marks on the car’s surface,” the carmaker said in a statement.

The paint is currently being tested on the Nissan Note, one of the newer Nissan releases.  It is being tested at Nissan’s Technical Center in Europe and is reportedly testing well in rain, sleet, snow, frost, and standing water.

At this point, the company has no plans to offer the Ultra-Ever Dry paint as a feature on cars, but that the paint is a possibility to be an aftermarket feature.

Check out the video posted by Nissan Europe to see the paint in action.
