Shell launches e-fluids to optimise electric vehicle performance

Shell on Thursday announced the launch of a new range of fluids specifically designed to work in battery electric vehicles (EVs).

These E-Transmission Fluids, E-Thermal Fluids and E-Greases will make battery EVs perform better and be more efficient.

This is part of Shell’s ongoing drive to support electric mobility and offer more and cleaner energy solutions for our customers, the company said in a statement.

Mansi Tripathy, Country Head, Shell Lubricants India said, “EVs are the new face of the Indian automotive sector and are crucial to the evolving mobility space. We are proud to innovate new E-Fluid Technologies and collaborate with industry partners towards enabling emission free E-mobility providing accessible fluid solutions for electric vehicles.”

According to the company, current lubricants, which have been developed for internal combustion engines, generally fall short of meeting the performance requirements of high-tech EV powertrains.

Shell’s E-Fluids have been designed by specialised lubricant scientists based in Hamburg and Shanghai to optimise the performance of EVs and deal with these challenges. E-Fluids will help battery EVs reduce their lifecycle emissions and extend their lifespans.

“Electric mobility is one of the solutions that will help meet growing demand for transport in a lower-carbon world. From power generation, to charging and now with our new range of specialised E-Fluids, Shell is serving the needs of an increasing number of EV drivers,” said Huibert Vigeveno, Executive Vice President of Global Commercial at Shell.
