Ever heard of a self-cleaning car that repels everyday dirt? The all-new Nissan Note is. The world’s first self-cleaning car features Nissan’s Ultra-Ever Dry paint technology that repels water, mud, dirt and oil. It is a specially engineered super-hydrophobic and oleophobic paint and is featured on the new Note.

Nissan Technical Centre Europe will commence testing the self-cleaning Note over the next few months in a variety of conditions, to gauge the real-world effectiveness of the Ultra-Ever Dry paint as a potential aftermarket application. Nissan created a protective layer of air between the paint and environment, which prevents standing water and road spray from creating dirty marks on the vehicle surface.

The already features a ‘self-cleaning' technology through ‘wash and blow dry' function on its rear view camera. The ‘wash and blow dry' function employs water and compressed air to automatically keep the camera lens free from dirt. The Ultra-Ever Dry paint -- marketed and sold by UltraTech International Inc. -- has so far effective against rain, spray, frost, sleet and standing water.

Nissan has current plans to apply the Ultra-Ever Dry paint technology to the Nissan Note as standard, the carmaker will consider the it as a future aftermarket option. Geraldine Ingham, Chief Marketing Manager for Nissan Note, remarked that he Nissan Note has been engineered to “take the stress out of customer driving” with the carmaker’s engineers constantly trying new ways to “make families' lives easier."

She added that they will always consider testing cutting-edge technology like the Ultra-Ever Dry coating application. The Nissan Note already features innovative safety technologies like the Nissan Safety Shield, which includes Lane Departure Warning, Blind Spot Warning and Moving Object Detection.

The Nissan Safety Shield package is made possible by 360° Around View Monitor technology featuring self-cleaning rear camera.
