Nissan recently released a YouTube ad showcasing a Leaf model that looks straight out of the future – with glow-in-the-dark paint. This special paint job actually absorbs UV energy during the day, enabling it to glow at night.
You can check out the short video here, on Nissan’s official channel.
In the clip, you’ll see the glow-in-the-dark Leaf sitting in the sunlight during the day, before it zooms around highways at night, glowing like a firefly. While it appears white during the day, its nightglow turns it into a fluorescent green, thanks to mysterious, organic compounds.
Nissan tragically does not appear to have plans to release this glow-in-the-dark paint to consumers, hoarding its secret formula. Instead, the purpose of the video is to demonstrate the Leaf’s dedication to converting solar energy.
But hey, a fan can hope, right? Maybe the Nissan glow-in-the-dark paint will be available for purchase someday in a bright, neon future. Until then, stop by James Ceranti Nissan to see what the hype is all about.
