At first glance it just looks like they’re applying a NeverWet-like coating. I mean, it’s great but it’s an extra coating anybody can decide to apply, and it’s only an evolution of the coatings that have been on the market for years.
This coating is a super-hydrophobic and oleophobic paint currently sold by UltraTech and not yet offered by Nissan as a standard feature despite the fact that they aim at considering it as an after-market option. The source is Nissan Europe.
It is indeed similar to NeverWet concept, but applied to a car body, which is maybe the technical challenge (dosing, large scale industrialization, spraying, …)
