Driveline fluids for electric vehicles
To help meet the challenges in formulating electric vehicle (EV) drivetrain fluids, synthetic base oils can provide an optimal balance of lubricant, thermal and electrical properties, while enhancing energy efficiency and long lubricant life.EV requirements are diverse and often unique to traditional lubrication challenges. New fluids and development approaches are required to address future needs.
Automotive original equipment manufacturers (OEM) are moving toward integrated systems in which one fluid is used for lubrication, thermal management and electrical performance.ExxonMobil is uniquely positioned to collaborate on these EV challenges through our broad, diverse fluid options and our enhanced understanding of chemical compatibility due to integration across business lines. To help solve challenges and increase speed to market, we encourage equipment manufacturers to collaborate with us.
