Shell launches new range of E-Fluids to optimise electric vehicle performance

Shell launches new range of E-Fluids to optimise electric vehicle performance

Shell 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 claims to deliver better performance from battery EVs as well as be more efficient. This is part of Shell’s ongoing drive to support electric mobility and offer more and cleaner energy solutions to its customers.

Shell 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. The products are reportedly targeted at the growing number of automotive manufacturers who are building EVs. Just like regular vehicles, battery EVs still need 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 powertrains. 

The Shell 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. The 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.

Electric vehicles are expected to play an increasingly important role in transporting people and products.  With the growth of EVs at currently 40-50 per cent 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 manufacturers to improve and protect their vehicles.
