Cube Interior Showing Plasmacluster Ion™ Air Conditioner With Disinfection Function

New air purifying technology has been launched by Nissan in Japan that cleans the air inside the car leading to a refreshing and relaxing atmosphere using the magic of ion particles.

A built-in Plasmacluster Ion™ generator produces positive and negative ions from water and oxygen molecules in the air. When these ions encounter airborne microbes, fungi, viruses and airborne pollens in the passenger compartment air, the ions form clusters around the naughty wee microparticles, react chemically with them, rendering them inactive. The feature is available on the Cube and March (Micra).

Once the space around you is clean, the generator releases primarily negative ions to maintain air quality and freshness. It is these negative or ‘minus’ ions that are purported to reduce stress and bring about feelings of happiness. They do this by purifying the air, reducing bacteria and decomposing odours. Your health should be improved along with your overall well-being as the ions provide a more tranquil setting in which to just "be".

In the quest to relax and de-stress, ionising has become a craze in Japan. Everything from bin liners to bracelets and hoovers to hair dryers have a ‘minus ion’ feature. Whilst this technological sensation seems to be unique to Japan, there is no doubt that we could do with a bit of stress release and tranquillity over here, too. Especially on the M25.
