Glow-in-the-Dark Car From Nissan Is Cool, But Won't Be Sold

Nissan in Europe is showing off a glow-in-the-dark paint job on its Leaf EV to promote the potential for charging the car using solar panels.

The company doesn’t have plans to produce glow-in-the dark cars for sale; it is using the paint only for a demonstration.

The coating was created by inventor Hamish Scott, and Nissan claims it can last up to 25 years, USA Today said. The coating absorbs sunlight during the day and can glow for up to 10 hours at night.

The paint has strontium aluminate and since it's made from organic materials, it's safe for the environment, making it different from other glow-in-the-dark products available, CNN Money reported.

While options exist for glow-in-the-dark paint, Nissan is the first automobile manufacturer to apply such paint to its cars, Tech Times reported.

The strontium aluminate used in the paint is rare, which may mean Nissan will never sell the glow-in-the-dark cars, Tech Times said.

A video of the glow-in-the-dark Leaf had gotten almost 240,000 views as of Tuesday afternoon.



Twitter users shared mixed reactions.
