With its innovative car wash foam technology, Nissan Motor India has successfully conserved 6.1 million litres of water over the past three years.
Car washes at service centres are a major component of aftersales and servicing of vehicles which require a large amount of water. Traditional car washes generally require around 160 litres of water to clean one car. The foam wash technique, introduced in 2014 at Nissan service centres, uses only 90 litres of water per car which reduces water consumption by 45 percent. The amount of water saved by the company is equivalent to the water consumption of around 25,000 households in India for one day.
Commenting on the eco-friendly initiative, Sanjeev Aggarwal, VP (Aftersales), Nissan Motor India, said, “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.”
