The new innovative product is named ‘Ultra-Ever Dry’ and is designed to repel water and oils by creating a protective layer of air between the paint and environment, ensuring dirt rolls off the exterior surface of the car.
The Japanese car manufacturer has stated that the paint, which is currently being tested on the recently launched Nissan Note, has “responded well to common use cases including rain, spray, frost, sleet and standing water.”
The company is considering including the superhydrophobic treatment as a paint option with an estimated price of around £450, similar to a metallic paint option.
Chief marketing manager Geraldine Ingham said; ‘The Nissan Note has been carefully engineered to take the stress out of customer driving and Nissan's engineers are constantly thinking of new ways to make families' lives easier.’
He continued to say ‘We are committed to addressing everyday problems our customers face and will always consider testing exciting, cutting edge technology like this incredible coating application.’
Should it eventually become available on production versions of the Note, it will feature alongside the car’s existing ‘wash and blow dry’ self-cleaning function, which is designed to clean the rear view camera.
