Self-Cleaning Cars

Nissan is reportedly experimenting with a new type of paint designed to repel water and oil so that you never have to clean your car again. The inside is still your own responsibility, though.

The paint, developed by engineers at the Nissan Technical Centre in the UK, is hydrophobic and oleophobic. That means it repels water and oil. That means the gunk and goo that normally sticks to your ride slides right off. It?s like wax, but better. Nissan?s engineers have applied the finish, called Ultra-Ever Dry, to a Nissan Note and say it does a remarkable job repelling rain, spray, frost, sleet and standing water. If the video is to be believed, mud literally slides right off.
