ExxonMobil announced today the global launch of its Mobil EV offering at the 2019 IAA, which features a full suite of fluids and greases designed to meet the evolving drivetrain requirements of battery electric vehicles. In combination, plug-in hybrids, battery electric and fuel cell vehicles are predicted to exceed 20 percent of the world’s light-duty fleet by 2040.
Russ Green, ExxonMobil’s vice president of finished lubricants said, “Mobility is changing and electric vehicles are becoming a greater part of the mix. Customers and OEMs are looking to optimize the range and safety performance of their electric vehicles, and ExxonMobil is uniquely positioned to deliver these benefits.
