EV Fluid

Today's environmental challenges have clearly put energy transition under way, and the resulting regulations are forcing the automotive industry to innovate constantly while responding to user expectations for quality and performance.

With the rising concern over tailpipe emissions prompting stricter standards for carbon dioxide and pollutants, demand of hybrid and electric vehicles are rapidly growing. In 2020, there were more than three million electric vehicles (EVs) sold which grew by 43% year on year. According to various scenarios, EV sales are expected to account for 90% of the light duty vehicles market by 2040 with some car manufacturers announcing that they would stop manufacturing internal combustion engine (ICE) models in the coming decades.

As a trusted partner to car manufacturers, TotalEnergies Lubrifiants aims to become the responsible energy major to deliver technical, people-oriented solutions and sustainable performance. Our goal is to promote cleaner mobility that is better for both people and the environment.

New product ranges in respond to the changing industry & new technical requirements

In light of the profound changes shaping the automotive industry, TotalEnergies Lubrifiants started developing new types of fluids to meet the new technical requirements of hybrid and electric vehicles – thanks to the extensive Research & Development efforts and commitment.

Three product lines are developed in this context:

Quartz EV Fluid
for hybrid and electric cars
Hi-Perf EV Fluid
for electric motorcycles
Rubia EV Fluid
for heavy duty electric vehicles and buses
