Nissan has released a statement claiming that the car maker has conserved 6.1 million litres of water in India over the past three years through an innovative car wash technique. Nissan’s foam wash technique is used to clean cars at its service centres across India, and is the reason behind the substantial amount of water being saved.
Commenting on this eco-friendly achievement, Sanjeev Aggarwal, VP of after sales, Nissan Motor India said, “Nissan always aims to deliver innovative and best-in-class sales and after sales service to its customers. Using the foam wash technique for our customers’ cars saves their time and a significant amount of water. That’s a winning combination for both Nissan and Datsun customers and for the environment.”
Car washes generally require around 160 litres of water to clean one car. However, the foam wash technique, which was introduced in 2014 at Nissan service centres, uses only 90 litres of water per car. This in-turn reduces water consumption by 45 percent and underlines the company’s effort to deliver sustainable mobility to customers.
