Nissan applies self-cleaning paint to electric car

SMYRNA, Tenn. — The Nissan Leaf, which is an electric, emissions-free vehicle, now has become the “world’s cleanest car” with the addition of self-cleaning paint, according to USA Today.

SMYRNA, Tenn. — Nissan generated big interest with its Ultra-Ever Dry coating, which has been called a self-cleaning paint, and now it is adding that technology to its electric, emission free car, the Nissan Leaf, according to USA Today.

The Leaf, notes the article, has been called the “world’s cleanest car.” The self-cleaning paint was debuted earlier this year.

“The 100 percent electric Leaf provides the perfect canvas for this new, advanced paint technology,” said Pierre Loing, the vice president of product planning for Nissan North America. “This is one Leaf that never has to stop at gas stations – not even for a car wash.”

The self-cleaning paint is still being tested by Nissan, and the company states it does not have plans to market it as a factory-applied coating. However, Nissan said it may make it an aftermarket option in the future.

Gravity has released a new universal on-street mounting and cable system, dubbed “DEAP Trees,” for its 200kW and 500kW Distributed Energy Access Points (DEAPs). Gravity said it is striving to develop a network of on-street DEAP charging more expansive than Tesla’s current Supercharger network.

Gravity’s engineers, in collaboration with design firm Rangr Studio, took on the challenge of solving frictions in curbside charging today. Each Gravity universal DEAP Tree has a hinged swing arm holding a cable that pivots down when charging begins, allowing it to reach the port of every make and model. When charging is completed, the arm raises automatically and the EV connector latches back onto the pole and out of sight.
