Product Description

Traffic pollution is worse than you think

Motor vehicles are the major source of urban air pollution. Motor vehicle emissions contribute the following levels of pollutants to the overall air quality:

The air in your car contains a cocktail of toxic fumes and gases that are potentially harmful to your health and the health of those you love. In fact, cabin air can be twice as contaminated as the outside! The Atem Car air purifier and its revolutionary HyperHEPA® Plus filter use air filtration technology tested and certified to capture a wide range of in-cabin air pollutants, all in a sleek, compact housing designed to blend into any vehicle cabin.

Atem Car performanceSuperior gas-phase filtration

 Atem Car’s HyperHEPA Plus filter provides the best solution for in-cabin gas and odour elimination. Atem Car combines two types of media: one that adsorbs odors and gases, and another that changes the pollutant to an oxidized form. The result is air that’s free of odors, gases, and chemicals.

Proven protection against ultrafine particles

Atem Car’s HyperHEPA Plus filtration is effective against particles 100x smaller than ordinary air filters. Ultrafine particles (UFPs) are smaller than 0.1 microns and, by sheer number, comprise about 90% of all airborne particles. Traffic pollution is a primary source of UFPs – and when it comes to protection against UFPs, IQAir is the proven choice

Toxic new car smell

Your vehicle can expose you to many chemicals found to be toxic. Research shows that over 275 chemicals can be present inside your car at any given time, many of which are produced by interior materials, which contain toxic chemicals. Researchers have also found that it can take up to 3 years for “new car smell” toxins to drop below thresholds considered “safe” to breathe.

Atem Car Install Kit included

The Atem Car air purifier is supplied complete with the Atem Car Accessory Kit. The kit includes a special car mount adapter and a 12-24V power adaptor that plugs into any standard car power socket. The crash-tested car mount can be fitted to the rear of the headrest of a seat, allowing the Atem air purifier to be snapped securely into place.

How it works

The IQAir Atem is an incredibly powerful, yet quiet and compact car air purifier. It is able to clean the air in your car up to 20 times per hour and capture a wide range of road and in-vehicle air pollutants.

Outstanding Design Meets High-Performance

Atem Car explodedThe outstanding design, advanced technical features and high-performance of the Atem are the result of combining cutting-edge Swiss engineering and attention to detail with high-quality components and first-class German workmanship. Here is an overview of some of the superior features offered by the Atem Car air purifier:

The HyperHEPA Plus Filter

The Atem Car features a high-efficiency HyperHEPA Plus filter with an ID-chip. The C-shaped filter was specifically designed to remove pollutants such as PM2.5, ultra fine particles, allergens, diesel soot and pollen with a minimum efficiency of 99% at 0.3 µm. A special gas-phase filter media also adsorbs a wide range of odours and chemicals. 

The Filter ID-Chip

The filter’s integrated ID-chip allows the Atem to monitor the life span of the filter. The system keeps track of the actual Atm Car pollutantsusage (operation time and fan speed) to compute the remaining lifespan and to maximise filter life. Once the calculated filter life reaches the last 5%, the user is alerted via the app and by a visual and audible signal emitted by the Atem. Upon insertion of the new HyperHEPA filter the Atem recognises it and automatically resets the filter life monitor.

12-24V Car Power Cord

The Atem Car is supplied with a car power adaptor that plugs into any 12-24V car, van or truck power socket (i.e. cigarette lighter socket). The power plug also features a USB socket that allows the user to charge mobile devices at the same time.

Automatic Operation

Once plugged in and switched on, the Atem turns on and off automatically with the car’s ignition.

Airflow Adjustment

The Atem offers 3 fan speed settings, each of which can also be individually adjusted and selected via Bluetooth® with the Atem smartphone app. The fan speed can also be selected directly on the unit by gently tapping the Atem logo on the front cover where an invisible touch point is located. 

Atem Car ControlsAirflow Indicator LED

An elegant blue LED light strip beneath the air outlet grille provides feedback of the selected airflow setting. Standby mode is indicated by a warm red glow. In addition to the visual feedback, each fan speed adjustment is accompanied by a gentle click or chime. Both, brightness of the LED and the sound level can be freely adjusted with the Atem app.

The Atem App

The free Atem App (Apple iOSGoogle Play and Android) also provides access to several advanced features including:

- a smart filter life monitor 

- fan speed customisation

- LED light and sound customisation

- a child-lock function

Crash-Tested Car Mount

The Atem car was specifically designed to be attached to the headrest of a front seat and fits around 99% of cars on the road today. Alternatively it can be securely attached to the safety belt of a free seat. Once the car mount bracket is fitted, the air purifier can be securely snapped into place. The removal is just as easy and quick with the release buttons on both sides of the car mount. The Atem has been thoroughly safety tested by IQAir’s R & D team at the ADAC crash test facility, Germany’s renowned Automobile Club. 


The Atem Car’s elegant and distinctive round shape and the classic black housing with silver trims blends perfectly into any car interior. 

Made in Germany
