Nissan LEAF “Will It Stick” Videos


Nissan has created multiple videos on testing the Nissan LEAF’s slick nano paint finish, which makes  the LEAF truly “The World’s Cleanest Car“.

This trick paint finish is supposed to repel anything and everything.  See a demonstration & further info on the technology here.

So, let’s now check out a couple of these videos to see what will stick to the LEAF’s paint.

Green Slime… Uh oh:

Well, let’s see if it gets better. How ’bout some eggs:

Not bad! But we like ice cream a lot more:

Well, let’s face it, you probably should not be throwing ice cream at your nano-painted car anyways. Wouldn’t you rather eat it? Like this piece of pizza:

Hmm, what is going on here? Maybe some better luck with some ginger ale?

We couldn’t help but laugh when we saw silly string being tested:

Darn, all that wasted pancake batter:

Well, at least there will be some maple syrup to go with that:

Or maybe not. Since no one wants to eat pancakes without syrup.  Chicken noodle soup instead?

We’re wondering why a few items are sticking, when they’re not supposed to…

You can gel your hair, but not the nano-painted LEAF!

So, as you saw, some of these items do not stick, but a few did.  This probably means that the idea of “never having to wash your car again”isn’t entirely true.  But less washing is for certain.

You can check out the rest of the “Will It Stick” videos here, but we wonder, Will it blend?

Is there any indication of Nissan actually using this paint on a production vehicle sometime in the future?

Nissans Public Affairs guru must be pulling out his or her hair under all the stress from trying to come up with the next distraction teqnique to not put out any info that could disrupt 2015 sales with 2016 LEAF ranges and release date. The guy..or girl needs a raise.


i dont get it

All these gimmicks are to showcase some “future” technologies that Nissan & its partners are working on. Concepts, not production ready yet (for example, the nano paint isn’t production ready for all colors). Nevertheless, things that may happen one day, when the technology matures.

What’s better than using a new type of vehicle (per se, in today’s standard) to showcase future’s technology?

I definitely don’t see the need to wait until more colors are availabe.

If they can get it to work properly with even just one color then it’s time to put it out there.

Offer the Leaf (or whatever car) with the normal colors and then have the option to choose (and probably pay more for) “Non-stick white”… just like there are some optional limited variants of metallic colors for some cars.

Would I rather not having to wash and clean it often and have it clean almost all the time anyway than to get to choose any color I like? Hell, yeah.

Especially if it’s available in white. Beautiful color on a car… as long as it’s just been washed 😛 Not so much in a day or two.

Except for maple syrup, were there any (that mattered) that didn’t stick?

Eggs? We aren’t worried about COOKED eggs, Nissan…

How about bug guts? Road tar?

This looks like a massive marketing failure.

Agreed. pollen? diesel particulates?

Seems pretty hit or miss to me.

Isn’t it a pretty bad marketing fail for a non-stick surface to show a lot of stuff that actually do stick to the surface? They are essentially showing that the surface isn’t as good as they want you to think!

This paint is a gimmick. If ice cream sticks, then think of tree sap and bird sh!t. Let that stuff dry and pretty soon you’ll have to wash it…

Some of the videos that claim “Doesn’t stick” actually is false because there is residue left over. Again, if that residue is on a flat surface and left to dry, you’ll have a dirty car.
