London: What if your car never gets dirty even when you come back home after a long countryside drive? Possible.

Japanese car-maker Nissan has unveiled a `self-cleaning` car with ‘nano-paint technology’ that repels dirt before it gets a chance to take hold on the paintwork.
“The Nissan `Note` is the first car to trial paint technology which could make car washes obsolete,” a company spokesperson was quoted as saying.

The `super-hydrophobic` and `oleophobic` paint also repels water and oils, media reports said.
According to a company press release, “by creating a protective layer of air between the paint and environment, the technology effectively stops standing water and road spray from creating dirty marks on the car`s surface”.

The `Ultra-Ever Dry` technology may cost around $750 (Rs.45,000).
