Total Energies Marketing India, a subsidiary of Total Energies, has launched its new EV fluid products in India for electric and hybrid cars and electric two-wheelers.

‘Quartz EV Fluid’ for cars and ‘Hi-Perf EV Fluid’ for two-wheelers have been developed specifically for drivetrain reducers, e-motors, e-transmissions and batteries in electric and hybrid vehicles.

According to the company, these custom EV fluids are designed with enhanced electrical properties against short circuits and static electricity and excellent compatibility with copper coils and new polymer materials used in electric vehicles. They are also produced “with excellent anti-wear properties and high thermal resistance with ultra-low viscosity for protection of gears and bearings and optimal temperature control with efficient cooling.”

Total Energies says its EV fluids are the result of extensive R&D investment. The company has partnered with leading car manufacturers as well as uses Formula E races as a test environment for its EV fluids to help improve vehicle performance, extend the autonomy and increase their lifespan.

Speaking at the product launch, Syed Shakilur Rahman, CEO Lubricants South Asia, Total Energies Marketing India said, “India is boosting EV adoption across the country with focus on sustainable and clean mobility solutions. As a result, the Indian electric vehicle market is expected to grow exponentially in the next five years. With the launch of our ranges of EV fluids in India, we bring our global experience and technical expertise to the Indian market. Our products have been especially developed to meet the cooling, insulating and lubrication needs of all types of electric and hybrid vehicles to ensure that they remain in peak condition throughout their lifetime.”
