Petronas launches advanced range of electric vehicle fluids

Petronas Lubricants International (PLI), the global lubricants manufacturing and marketing arm of Malaysia’s state-owned oil and gas company Petronas, introduced an advanced range of electric vehicle (EV) fluids.

“We believe that e-mobility is expanding at a rapid pace. With this rapid growth, innovative solutions are key to accelerate the move towards e-mobility for a more sustainable future,” said   PLI’s Managing Director and Group Chief Executive Officer, Giuseppe D’Arrigo.

According to the recent Global EV Outlook 2021, the global market for all types of cars was significantly affected by the economic repercussions of the COVID-19 pandemic. While conventional and overall new car registrations fell, the global electric car sales saw a 70% increase in 2020.

First launched in 2019, Petronas iona aims to help accelerate the world towards a zero-carbon future by optimising the energy efficiency, safety and performance of electric vehicles with advanced EV fluid solutions. Since then, developments were made to be at pace with the changes in the EV technology.

The second generation of Petronas iona is designed to meet the multiple requirements in the electric drive unit and e-axles including friction and wear control, as well as thermal management, to maximise the performance, energy efficiency and reliability of high-performance electric vehicles.

Following the launch, PLI brought industry-leading experts together and spearheaded its second webinar, Petronas EV Fluids Webinar 2021 as part of its commitment to accelerate efficiency and to continue its collective efforts towards a sustainable future. The webinar covered topics ranging from battery electric vehicles (BEV) innovations to developments in fluid technology of e-transmission systems by experts within PLI as well as spokespersons from the industry.

PLI has been working with a pioneering group of partners – including Imperial College London, FEV Group, IAV and additive companies – since 2018, to co-engineer safe, high-performing and dependable fluids specifically for electric powertrains. Its portfolio of EV fluids tailor-made for customer applications are borne from this collaborative approach.

Commenting on the webinar, D’Arrigo said, “The presentations at the webinar are some of the strides and progress of co-engineered projects among our industry and academic partners. All the sessions are driven by one common goal – sustainability. The webinar is a testament that we have taken another step forward, entering a new leg of our journey towards advancing e-mobility for a greener and sustainable future.”
