Nanotechnology has been implemented widely in the automotive industry. This technology is particularly useful in coatings, fabrics, structural materials, fluids, lubricants, tires, and preliminary applications in smart glass/windows and video display systems. A special sub-class of improved materials, alternative energy, has also seen a boost from advances in nanotechnology, and continues to be an active research area. A correlation exists in the automotive industry between the areas with increased nanotechnology incorporation and those with increased profit margins via improvements and customer demands.

Keywords: Anti-Bacterial, automobile, coolant, fabric, fuel cell, head-up display, lubricant, nanocoating, nanofluid, nanoparticle, nanotechnology, self-cleaning, smart glass, supercapacitor, tire, UV protection, wear resistance.
