Your road trip just got a lot more neon-happy.

Let’s control the excitement, apparently these cars can’t be bought just yet. But we’re loving Nissan Leaf with a totally organic paint coat which not only contains Strontium Aluminate (a biologically solid odorless, nonflammable compound) but it also comes in the coolest color…EVER.

It’s completely glow-in-the-dark!

Introduced in Japan and in the U.S. back in December 2010, Nissan Leaf – Leading Environmentally-friendly Affordable Family car – is a compact five-door hatchback electric vehicle. Nissan’s running cost of an electric car are low while consumers tend to charge them at home. With an awesome glow-in-the-dark coating, Nissan wants to emphasize the car’s high conversion rate to hail car owners over to solar energy at home.

At night, solar panels can’t charge electric cars. But during daytime, solar paneled homes can get paid for surplus energy returned to the grid so that electricity costs are hugely decreased in general.

This funky paint can absorb UV energy during the day which converts to 8-10 hours of glowing at night. Nissan also claims the paint can last up to 25 years.

Your road trip to music festivals just got way more hip. That is, if these cars ever become commercially available.
