Honda Cars India has today announced that the company will be now offering an innovative Antivirus Cabin Air-filter in its cars. This air-filter is highly effective in capturing a wide range of harmful germs, allergens, and even viruses that cause significant health problems. It has been developed in cooperation with Freudenberg, a global technology group, and is offered as a new Honda Genuine accessory, an alternative to the standard Honda pollen filter. This new cabin air-filter provides active protection by significantly reducing the concentration of viral aerosols.
This is achieved by a unique multi-layer design that effectively filters, captures, and suppresses harmful environmental gases as well as inorganic biological particles and aerosols. This helps in mitigating the risk while travelling in motor vehicles. The first microfiber bio-functional layer coated with the active substance of leaf extract effectively inactivates allergens along with bacteria and prevents them from being released into the cabin air. Its other layers capture most viruses, ultra-fine aerosols, dust, etc. while the layer, made of activated carbon, is responsible for the adsorption of harmful acidic gases, pollutants such as PM2.5, and particulate matter.
