The car tarpaulin produced in collaboration with the TYPE1/TAXI team absorbs pollutants from the surrounding environment and decomposes them.

Cities around the world use titanium dioxide coatings for their ability to remove pollution from the air. These coatings are usually applied to roads and buildings – but on a mission to show how enjoyable electric cars can be, Volkswagen Canada has found a new way to use them.

Volkswagen Canada, in collaboration with the TYPE1/TAXI team, presented a remarkable solution to the fight against air pollution in an unexpected place - in the hood of its all-electric ID.4 car. It can do more than just protect the vehicle. It actively removes pollution from the air.

So how does it work? When activated by daylight, the tarpaulin absorbs pollutants from the surrounding environment, which then break down into harmless substances such as water and other basic elements.

The covers were produced in cooperation with the nanotechnology company FN NANO, were adapted for the ID.4 model and sent to the owners.

"ID.4 owners love their all-electric SUV. And as electric car owners, they are also passionate about the environment. That's why we wanted to create an accessory that would help protect both," says Head of Marketing Lynne Piette.

On its mission to show how enjoyable using electric cars can be, Volkswagen Canada has introduced a fully electric version of the iconic VW minibus. With this latest initiative, he also wanted to show that even accessories for electric cars can benefit the planet.
