Paint Is the Most Expensive Component of Any Vehicle

Updated: Mar 12, 2020

Do you know what the most expensive component of a new vehicle is?


Engine? Transmission?

Leather? Chassis?


The paint is the single most expensive part of a vehicle in terms of the investment at the factory. The development of the paint itself, the space, time, and energy required for the time-consuming, multi-step process (as much as 50% of the factory space and 70% of the total energy usage), the tooling and programming of the machines to do the work, and the inspection and any rework are just a few of the factors.


With so much invested in the appearance of your vehicle, wouldn't it make sense to protect and maintain your paint?
