Mitsubishi gains approval for disinfecting spay used in cars to kill COVID-19
Mitsubishi Motors has announced that its new Diamond Premium Care disinfecting spray has been approved for use by the Environmental Protection Agency, and is effective in killing the SARS-CoV-2 virus.
Diamond Premium Care is a non-abrasive, antimicrobial, no-contact disinfecting and deodorizing spray used on vehicle interiors and HVAC systems. Mitsubishi Motors is the first and only OEM deploying this service on a national scale.
"Diamond Premium Care is a rare tool in the fight against COVID-19. It offers peace of mind to the driver of any vehicle, but it's especially valuable to those with added exposure, whether that comes from regularly sharing their vehicle with others or from the direct risk of on-the-job exposure to COVID-19," said MMNA Vice President of Aftersales, Scott Smith. "MMNA and our dealer partners are proud to be able to offer this first-of-its-kind, EPA-approved service to everyone during these challenging times."

Diamond Platinum Care kills 99.99% of viruses and bacteria that inhabit automotive interiors and circulate via the vehicle's HVAC system. It kills SARS-Related Coronavirus 2 on hard, non-porous surfaces. It also eliminates odors at their source without using abrasive chemicals or masking agents.
Here's how it works. The dye-free treatment is applied directly by spray to vehicle surfaces, and for HVAC application, it is applied through the outdoor air intake vent, allowing it to permeate through the HVAC system and cabin interior. For a standard-size vehicle, treatment can be completed in just 10 minutes.
The technology behind Diamond Premium Care™ was developed by Texas-based vehicle disinfecting solutions provider BioPledge.
Diamond Premium Care is currently offered at participating Mitsubishi Motors dealer partners in the U.S. Service must be scheduled in advance with a participating dealer. Pricing may vary.
