Panasonic confirms that Jaguar Land Rover will use Panasonic’s Nanoe X Technology in in-vehicle HVAC system in the future.
Panasonic confirms that Jaguar Land Rover*1, a luxury automobile brand, will use Panasonic’s nanoe X technology in in-vehicle HVAC systems in the future.
Panasonic Nanoe X Technology in Jaguar Land Rover
Models across the Jaguar range currently offer the nanoe technology, including the new all-electric Jaguar I-PACE performance SUV. Likewise, the Land Rover line-up which includes the Discovery and Range Rover Evoque also use this tech.
nanoe is a nano-sized particulate ion produced by applying a high voltage to water in the air. It contains hydroxyl radicals which are highly reactive components. These components easily act on various substances.
The production of hydroxyl radicals has been increased tenfold compared to conventional products. The nano X is used in home appliances such as air purifiers, air conditioners, washing machines*A, and refrigerators. It is also used in automobiles*A, trains*A, and commercial air-conditioning equipment. This wide application is due to its various effects such as deodorization*2 inhibition of bacteria*3 and allergens*4.
Not only in the automotive sector, Panasonic will also continue to pursue the realization of "Quality Air for Life" in various areas of our lives and society, including housing-related fields and home appliances. These include selected models of air conditioners, refrigerator, and air purifiers in order to deliver a healthy lifestyle.
