Supporting 150 nanoe X generators on 150 GrabCar Medical vehicles is part of the joint efforts of the two global players Panasonic and Grab to join hands with the Vietnamese government and the society in the prevention of the COVID-19 pandemic.
|As of September 5, GrabCar Medical service has carried out more than 3,000 free rides to safely take people and medical staff home |
The 150 GrabCar Medical vehicles (including 110 vehicles in Ho Chi Minh City and 40 vehicles in Hanoi) are installed with nanoe X generators, with the aim of improving air quality, safety, and comfort during transport for recovered COVID-19 patientsreturning home from hospital, as well as medical staff and Grab driver partners.
The GrabCar Medical fleet has been deployed by Grab Vietnam in Ho Chi Minh City on August 20 to transport medical staff home for free from the hospital, as well as COVID-19 patients who have recovered from the disease and have been discharged.

With the support of nanoe X technology developed by Panasonic in Japan in 1997, which helps improve air quality, Panasonic and Grab aim to create a more comfortable and safer mobile space.
nanoe X is an electrostatic atomisation technology, that collects invisible moisture in the air and applies a high voltage to it to produce hydroxyl radicals contained in water. Hydroxyl radicals inhibit the growth of pollutants such as bacteria and viruses. They are characterised by being strongly oxidative and highly reactive, hence a short life span.
The Panasonic nanoe X generator is powered by a USB port and is compact enough to fit in a car cup holder, making it easy to generate nanoe X to clean the air inside the car.
In earlier efforts, Panasonic teamed up with Grab in a project to provide 2,000 nanoe X generators free of charge in 2,000 GrabCar Premium vehicles in Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City, in the context of increasing social interest and demand for comprehensive clean air quality. This activity is part of a regional cooperation implemented in five major cities (Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, Jakarta, Hanoi, and Ho Chi Minh City) where Panasonic has provided total 5,500 nanoe X generators free of charge to be installed on 5,500 Grab Premium cars.
In the automotive sector as well as in the larger society, including home appliances and housing-related fields, to deliver a healthy lifestyle, Panasonic pursues the realisation of "Quality Air for Life " with the application of nanoe technology in a variety of total air solutions.
The cooperation with Grab is one of Panasonic's series of activities on the eve of the 50th anniversary of Panasonic's official operation in Vietnam. The company has declared its business direction for the next 50 years, becoming a Total Wellness Solutions Providing Company, pioneering in human-oriented technology trends, at the same time, proposing solutions to urgent social problems, testifying Panasonic's efforts to realise its mission of bringing a healthy, safe, and comfortable life to Vietnamese consumers.
