BlueAir Connected Cabin P2/i Car Purifier


Connected Blueair Cabin P2/i cleans the car from harmful gas emissions (from your own car and other cars), particles like tires and road wear, smoke, dust, soot, sand, pollen, bacteria, viruses, and off-gassing chemical VOCs used in car interiors, in six minutes. All of these harmful substances are either already in your car or come in through the car’s ventilation system.  We spend 10 hours a week inside vehicles, a very small space, where exposure to these harmful materials can be up to two times higher than on the street. Compact and easy to install, the Cabin P2/i is equipped with HEPASilent™ technology, which filters out at least 99.97% of airborne pollutants Sustainably designed for highest road safety, the Cabin P2/i is available for cars, trucks and other road vehicles. It has airflow control and uses a companion app to monitor air quality.
