has launched 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.
has been working closely with automotive and component manufacturers to
engineer these “first fill” fluids that effectively and efficiently meet a
broad range of battery EV performance requirements. These products are targeted
at the growing number of automotive manufacturers who are building EVs.
regular vehicles, battery EVs still needs fluids to operate. Current
lubricants, which have been developed for internal combustion engines,
generally fall short of meeting the performance requirements of high-tech EV
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 due to their ultra-low viscosity properties which
increase vehicles efficiency, and outstanding ageing properties which exceeds
conventional oils. Shell has also produced a range of fluids, Shell Helix
Hybrid, which are designed to work specifically with hybrid vehicles.
vehicles are expected to play an increasingly important role in transporting
people and products. With the growth of EVs at currently 40-50% per year , and
with the International Energy Agency anticipating that, by 2040, there may be
280 million EVs on the road, Shell E-Fluids cater for a growing need among
consumers and automotive manufactures to improve and protect their vehicles.
