- Safer and healthier interiors: Nano e X technology releases hydroxyl radicals that are capable of inhibiting bacteria and viruses, including 99.99% of the adhered novel coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2)*; nano e-G effectively removes 99% PM2.5 particles, ensuring a better indoor air quality.
- Nano e X technology is now available in Panasonic’s nano e X Air Conditioners – which have been tested for the inhibitory effect on the novel coronavirus (SARS- CoV-2) at the Texcell Laboratory, France.
To ensure a safer and a healthier lifestyle amidst this pandemic, Panasonic India has announced the launch of a new range of air conditioners (ACs) under the HU series enabled with recently announced nano e X technology.
Speaking at the launch, Manish Sharma, president and CEO, Panasonic India & South Asia, said “Panasonic has been a frontrunner when it comes to developing path breaking technologies over the years to cater to the ever-evolving needs of the consumers. Our new range of Air Conditioners come with the nano e X technology demonstrating our commitment of making products that are relevant and in line with consumer requirements.
Nano e X technology releases hydroxyl radicals contained in water. Hydroxyl radicals are also known as “nature’s detergent” that are capable of inhibiting bacteria and viruses, including 99.99 percent of the adhered novel coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2). Panasonic has successfully tested the nano e X device as well as nano e X ACs for the inhibitory effect on the novel coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) at Texcell Laboratory, France. The new line-up of the five-star inverter nano e X ACs will be available in 1-ton and 1.5-ton. The first model, (CS/CU-HU18XKYF) will be priced at INR 66, 000. Indian consumers can experience the new range of Panasonic ACs, across major retail outlets, online portals and Panasonic brand stores soon.
“India has one of the lowest penetrations of ACs in the world at 5% that holds immense growth prospects in the segment. Further, with deteriorating air quality and the spread of new diseases, consumers have become more health-conscious. Therefore, our new range of Panasonic nano e X ACs are capable of eliminating the growth of certain pollutants such as allergens, bacteria, viruses, moulds, odours, and certain hazardous substances to enable a healthier lifestyle for our consumers,” Suguru Takamatsu, divisional head, Consumers Sales division, Panasonic India said.
The new range of Panasonic nano e X ACs i.e., HU series features Miraie – Panasonic’s Artificial Intelligence (AI) and IoT (Internet of Things) platform to ensure connected living. Comfort factor is ensured through superior cooling via Twin Cool INV, ECONAVI and Jetstream. The promise of durability is assured through Shield-Blu and ecoTOUGH technology. The HU series have been designed aesthetically and will be available in Advance facia.
A safer and healthier indoor air quality is ensured through Panasonic’s original nano e X and nano e- G technology. nanoe-G technology works on the principle of ionizer technology and is already present across the air conditioner range.
Dr. Prerna Kohli, a renowned clinical psychologist and founder of MindTribe.in, was invited at the Panasonic India press conference. Sharing her views on the situation Dr. Kohli said, “Contrary to the popular belief that Covid-19 only had a physical impact on people, no one was ready for the impact it had on the mental wellbeing. With little or no control over external environment, people today have become more anxious about – having a healthy lifestyle, falling ill and infecting others unknowingly, worries related to childcare and elderly parents. And, until the vaccine becomes accessible and compatible for all, this concern will remain in the near future.”
“However, we still have an option to take control of our mental stature and, our indoor environment by making smart choices. I believe, such breakthrough tech-innovations like Panasonic’s nano e X are a reflection of our evolving lifestyle needs, takes care of our indoor safety and at the same time offers complete peace of mind.” Dr. Kohli further added.
