Bangalore, Aug 10 (UNI) Toyota Kirloskar Motor environment friendly car cleaning solution 'Eco Car Wash' reduces the water consumed for washing cars to an extent of 95 per cent for every single car cleaned at Toyota’s service outlets to create ever better sustainable society, said N Raja, Deputy Managing Director TKM on Friday

"Toyota has been striving relentlessly to conserve the scarce water resource by introducing the eco car wash across its dealership over the years. Till date, 100 plus dealerships have adopted this eco concept of car wash to offer best-in-town vehicle servicing experience to its customers in the region. Toyota has developed video manuals and standard operating procedures to train the technicians on this unique car wash technique, offering quality service while achieving 100 per cent customer satisfaction," the statement stated.

With this waterless car wash at dealerships, Toyota contributes to around 253 million litres of water savings annually, while ensuring 100 per cent cleanliness of the cars. ECO wash is a unique concept which gives a fine finish with zero water usage, by cleaning the vehicle with eco-friendly products without affecting the environment and preserving the most valuable natural resource - Water.

"The ECO wash products used at Toyota dealerships are ready to use water-based formulation designed to effectively clean dirt & grime from vehicle painted surface without damaging the surface. Easy to use, dry wash is a water-based product. This new eco product delivers to the customers the perfectly cleaned cars at no extra cost and no extra time over the traditional water wash,' he said.

"In addition to reduction in water consumption, this eco method of car washing at our service outlets helps to avoid possible contamination of soil channels that occurs with the use of alkaline solutions in shampoos under conventional car wash," he added.

The ECO wash method of cleaning cars consumes just about 5 per cent of the water as compared to traditional car wash.
