Picture this: it’s Friday night and you and a few friends are going out for the night to live it up on the town. You and your friends are amped and listening to your favorite EDM artists like Zedd, Skrillex, Krewella, etc. what something is missing. You can’t quite put your finger on it until you see this cool car drive past you. What company is that car from? Is that a Nissan Leaf? Wait… is that car a glow in the dark car? Yes… yes it is. WOW! Having a glow in the dark car would make you night, every night, that much more badass.
Nissan has come out with a special paint that glows in the dark. The paint absorbs sunlight during the day and can glow in the dark for up to 10 hours. It is a special coating over the paint that was created by Nissan in Europe. Nissan is the first automaker that has done this from the factory and it shouldn’t be that much of an extra price for this add-on. Other companies have been able to do this glow in the dark paint, but it was always aftermarket. This Nissan Leaf Glow in the dark paint is straight OEM. Nissan claimed that the paint would has the glow in the dark properties for at least 25 years. That is a ton of glowing.
The entire purpose of this glow in the dark coating came about because Nissan would like to power their cars from solar energy one day soon using this coating and/or solar panels on the car. That way you can own a Nissan and literally have no gas payment, not extra electric payment to charge your vehicle, etc. it would basically be free to use the vehicle.
Nissan has been trying different types of paint for their vehicles as of late. Recently, they created a mess-resistant paint for the Nissan Leaf that would hardly need to be cleaned. Dirt, mud, road debris, etc would not stick to the paint and therefore would nt have to be cleaned hardly at all.
Technology in paints has come a long way. This mess-resistant paint and the glow in the dark paint is only the tip of the iceberg. I suggest you EDM nuts should go out and get one of these cars ASAP. You will be the live of the party on the way to the party, at the party and coming home from the party.
