Panel Discussion: Lubrication Challenges and Opportunities Within Fully Electric Vehicles

According to projections, the global market share for electric cars is expected to reach 20% by 2025 and 40% by 2030. Concurrently, demand for traditional ICE’s is gradually decreasing. EV’s are the way of the future, and increasing their performance potential to meet the expectations of consumers can be effectively met by the innovations of the lubricants industry.  

Navigating the challenges of lubricating an electric vehicle poses its fair share of complexities. However, thanks to continuous innovations within the lubricants industry, these obstacles are being effectively mitigated. This session aims to address the unique tribological challenges specific to EVs. Notably, harnessing the power of lubricants to alleviate range anxiety, the latest advances in EV transmission fluids, and guidance on selecting the most suitable transmission fluid or additive package.  

  Discussion Points:

  • How do you mitigate the tribological challenges typically associated with EV’s?   
  • How can lubricants improve the range of an EV?  
  • What are the latest developments with EV Transmission?
