NAGOYA As of next year, Toyota Motor will be able to offer a new service thanks to the company’s new paint removal technology. Thanks to new technology, automobiles will soon be able to be “dressed up”. The customer has the option of customizing the color of the body by selecting from more than 100 different options. Toyota claims that the new paint can be removed to reveal the vehicle’s original finish.
Drivers will be able to customize the color of their vehicles at will. According to the automaker, they will also be able to avoid damaging their vehicles while removing unwanted paint, thus preserving their resale value.
The new technology comes at a time when car owners are increasingly choosing to keep their vehicles for longer periods of time. Toyota hopes that the new technology will help drivers keep their beloved cars and not grow tired of them.
Customers of Toyota’s car subscription service will be able to use the new service provided by KINTO, a Toyota group company based in Nagoya. We’re still ironing out the kinto outlet details and pricing.
Typically, paint removal requires the use of special stripping chemicals. According to KINTO, the new technology employs a high-pressure water spray to minimise any possible damage. Thanks to new technology, repainted cars now have the wind and rain resistance they need to get back on the road.
Passenger car ownership in Japan increased by four years in 2021, to an average of 14 years. It’s partly because car prices have risen in tandem with improvements in functionality, and it’s also because older models can now accommodate more customizations.
Using the new paint technology, car owners can extend the working life of their vehicles by painting them any color they desire.
