The virus spread prevention with new cabin purification system in Jaguar Land Rover

Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) has revealed a cabin air purification system for its forthcoming road cars that inhibits viruses and bacteria by up to 97 per cent, including Covid-19.

  • JLR’s new system utilises a Panasonic purifier to neutralise viruses
  • Lab tests prove it inhibits COVID-19 by almost 100 per cent

In lab tests, Nanoe X has been shown to inhibit Covid-19 by almost 100 per cent. A current test by a research group, Texcell, discovered the Nanoe X inhibited more than 99.995 per cent of the virus during a two-hour test.

During a JLR and virology lab test, Perfectus Biomed, JLR’s Nanoe X-equipped climate control system, inhibited viruses and bacteria, including Covid-19, by up to 97 per cent.

The Nanoe X technology utilises high-voltage electricity to produce hydroxyl (OH) radicals, airborne chemicals in nano-sized water droplets. These radicals deactivate viruses by obstructing their shells and genomes. They also inhibit and deodorise allergens.

JLR research engineer Alexander Owen stated, “Hydroxyl radicals are one of the most important natural oxidants in chemistry and have been helping to clean our atmosphere for millennia, removing pollutants and other harmful substances.”

“The creation of this technology and our advanced research is the first step in deploying this scientific phenomenon within vehicle cabins of the future,” he added.

JLR hasn’t yet established when the technology will be commercialised or which production models will be the first to get the system.

Currently, JLR models, including the Jaguar I-Pace EV and the Range Rover Evoque, are fitted with Panasonic’s existing Nanoe air purification technology. The most advanced system is said to be ten times more powerful.

JLR isn’t the only company to be working on antivirus technology for cars. In response to last year pandemic, UFI Filters, an Italian car part maker, launched an antivirus cabin filter in India.

The Sofima D+fend system is claimed to kill 99.5 per cent of viruses from the coronavirus family.

 

JLR in India

Jaguar India sets to start the I-Pace EV on March 23, while Land Rover recently appended a new powertrain option to the Defender’s India line-up.
