NASHVILLE -- No more car washes?
Nissan Motor Corp. is experimenting with a “self-cleaning” car that uses a new coating technology to help repel rain, oil and grime.
Researchers at the Nissan Technical Centre Europe in England are testing the coating on a Versa Note subcompact. But a statement released by the company today said it is considering the technology only as a dealer aftermarket option -- not as a factory standard paint.
The technology, marketed by UltraTech International Inc., is called Ultra-Ever Dry.
