Petro-Canada Lubricants has launched a new line of purpose-built lubricant solutions for electric vehicles. The new Petro-Canada Lubricants EVR product line will support vehicle manufacturers in designing lubricant solutions to EV challenges.
The EVR product line includes the following new product brands:
- EVR Driveline.
- EVR Thermal Management.
- EVR Motor Greases.
According to Petro-Canada, all EVR fluids and greases provide OEMs with improved material compatibility, efficient power transfer, and improved equipment performance. This, it said, allows the development of advanced driveline, axle and battery technologies for use across a range of sectors, including automotive, heavy- and medium-duty transportation.
“The integration of EV technology into the transportation world is well underway, and our new EVR product line will further enable OEMs, commercial fleets and consumers to realize the promise of EV technology,” said Alex Buczek, global segment manager transportation at Petro-Canada Lubricants.
Petro-Canada Lubricants is a member of the Southwest Research Institute’s Advanced Fluids for Electric Vehicles Consortium, which is working to advance the automotive industry’s understanding of the unique stressors placed on EV and hybrid vehicle fluids.
