Honda Launches “Face Masks”

Honda has introduced a new product to create an additional line of defense against the COVID-19 virus. The manufacturer introduced Kurumaku, a new antiviral product for Honda Cars cabin air filters. These will be fitted on top of regular air filters to prevent the spread of the virus. Honda claims the new filter can remove 99.8% of virus droplets within 15 minutes of switching on air recirculation and viruses on the surfaces can be cleaned out within 24 hours.

This additional accessory will first be rolled out in Japan and made available in other vehicles eventually. Will other manufacturers follow? Time will tell.
