Stockholm, 26 October 2021- For the first time ever, ride hailing drivers and passengers in Shanghai will be breathing healthier air, thanks to a deal struck between SAIC Mobility, locally known as Xiangdao, and CabinAir, the Stockholm-based innovator of in-vehicle air quality.
“Ride hailing cars are some of the vehicles that need our solutions the most,” says CabinAir CEO Daniel Hagström. “Not only is it a competitive advantage to offer healthy air to passengers, there’s an even bigger health benefit for drivers, who spend many hours a day breathing air that can be many times more polluted than outside air.”
Indeed, people who spend a lot of time in cars are increasingly exposed to high levels of air pollution, which seriously affects their health. Typical pollutants include tiny PM2.5 particles that go deep into the lungs before directly entering the bloodstream, toxic vapors like formaldehyde, which are emitted by interior carpets and plastics, dust, pollen and other allergens, as well as bacteria and viruses.
All of these pollutants can become concentrated inside a vehicle, making the air inside our cars some of the most polluted air that we ever encounter. For professional drivers who spend long hours in the car every day, the problem is even worse.
A comprehensive product portfolio
By installing CabinAir’s Nordzone™ products in 100 cars driving the streets of Shanghai, SAIC Mobility is creating an in-vehicle environment that aims for air as healthy for drivers and passengers as the air in a Nordic forest.
“We are so proud that SAIC Mobility chose our technology for healthy in-cabin air,” Hagström says. “With our Nordzone products for cars already on the road, you can make a big change for your drivers’ and customers’ health and wellbeing. Our offer includes factory-integrated solutions, aftermarket systems, smart sensors, stand-alone air purifiers and superior cabin air filters.”
