Valvoline, a global supplier of premium automotive lubricants and automotive services, has announced the launch of its first range of electric vehicle-specific products known as Valvoline EV Performance Fluids.
Commenting on the new range, Heidi Matheys, Valvoline chief marketing officer said that the company’s
technical team has consistently developed products to cater to the needs of changing vehicle technology. She added that Valvoline’s latest products and upcoming news about additional EV offerings point to the commitment Valvoline has both to its customers and to its 150-year tradition of innovation.
The products that are a part of the range include Valvoline EV Heat Transfer Fluids, Valvoline EV Drive System Fluid, Valvoline EV Brake Fluid and Valvoline EV Grease. The company says that these products can be used to tackle common issues experienced in EVs related to battery temperature variations, powertrain performance, brake system corrosion and seal bearing failure.
According to Valvoline, these products can contribute to not only extending the life of the battery but also that of the other components of an electric vehicle, thus helping to optimize the vehicle’s overall performance and contributing to longer vehicle lifespan.
In the US alone, EV registrations have doubled from 2017 to 2018 and about 1.1 million EVs are expected to be sold across the nation by 2025, according to an April 2019 IHS Markit report. On a global basis, electric cars on the road crossed the 3 million mark in 2017, which was an increase of over 50 percent from the previous year, according to the International Energy Agency’s 2018 Global EV Outlook.
“Valvoline has continually invested in products and services for vehicles of the future during our long history, and this has remained true for new EV technologies,” said Craig Moughler, Valvoline chief supply chain officer and leader of the company’s EV strategy team. “We have maintained a very close technical and commercial relationship with many of the innovative OEM’s in the EV world, ultimately leading to the launch of this new product offering that helps to ensure optimum vehicle performance as EV technologies rapidly evolve.”
Fran Lockwood, Valvoline chief technology officer said that the company has researched, tested and proven this line’s capabilities in its own labs and using real-time data in real-world conditions. The stringent testing carried out by Valvoline’s technical team ensures that each EV Performance Fluid meets the highest standards.
