Mercedes-Benz Snow Melting Technology Patent

July 22nd, 2016 by

Recently, Mercedes-Benz has submitted a patent for a heated water sprayer to help you get better grip during snowy and icy conditions. This is just the latest example of the innovation that has been brewing at Mercedes-Benz since their inception in 1893. This clever system could work wonders on the winter roads around our Mercedes-Benz dealership in the Toledo, OH area.

The concept behind this system is actually fairly simple. Rainwater would be collected in a reservoir, and then pumped through piping that passes through a heat exchanger. From there, the heated rainwater will be sprayed onto the tires via nozzles integrated into each wheel well. The water would be warm enough to melt snow off of your tires, therefore improving traction on snowy and icy surfaces.


While this technology is only a patent for now, you can check out the top-of-the-line technology Mercedes Benz has to offer at Vin Devers Autohaus near Toledo, OH.
