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