Nissan offers breathable Vitamin C enriched cars
In response to those who think that reliance on cars is unhealthy, Nissan will feature in its latest models the air-conditioner that pump breathable vitamin C and stress-reducing seats in a statement on Wednesday.
The group also considers enhancing the speedometers that can further improve the in-car atmosphere with timely reminders of events or important dates in case the driver forgets.
"We want drivers to feel that they are healthier staying in the car instead of on the outside," a Nissan engineer said.
With an air-conditioner able to spray vitamin C which helps moisturize skin, Nissan also plans to install cars with heating "easy chairs" that uses National Aeronautics and Space Administration research to help in blood circulation and reduce back pain especially in long drives.
The announcement was made along with plans to equip new cars, within the next two to three years, with a raft of driver safety features including anti-collision technology.
As the competition among the automotive industry increases and the concept of technology expands, manufacturers continues to add innovation.
"The emotional aspect of a car has become increasingly important and as the customer needs diversify," said Nissan engineer Kenichi Tanaka.
With only one hybrid vehicle, the Altima – uses Toyota’s technology, the carmaker is left behind by its rivals Toyota and Honda.
