Future models of Jaguar Land Rover will help fight the spread of flu and colds, using the achievements of modern medicine. We are talking about installing ultraviolet (UV-C) disinfection systems in cars.

The ultraviolet radiation technology will be borrowed from the medical industry, where it has been used successfully for over 70 years. The solution is widely used to disinfect water, filter air and sterilize surfaces using light with a wavelength of 200-280 nanometers. In JLR believe that using UV-C in the climate system, it will be possible to destroy the DNA of pathogenic microorganisms before the air enters the car.

Ultraviolet will help fight the spread of colds and flu. The technology will “kill” bacteria and viruses, including antibiotic-resistant microorganisms, known as superbugs. According to the head of the JLR department of medicine, Dr. Steve Aili, on average, a car owner spends 300 hours a year in the passenger compartment, and this time is best used to provide preventive medical care.

In 2015, Tesla introduced the climate system with the function Bioweapon Defense. A special filtration system, inspired by those used in the space industry, is capable of purifying outside air from pollen, bacteria and pollution, reducing their level to zero. Tests have shown that this mode is able to protect even against a biological weapon attack.
