ALMU Webinar – When will electric vehicles take charge: Potential impact on lubricant formulations and sales channels
Even though the current electric vehicle (EV) population is small, nearly all industry experts predict that EVs will ultimately dominate the vehicle market. The big question is when. This webinar will examine the impact of EVs on lubricant demand and manufacture. We will discuss performance properties needed for EV lubricants that are different from those of current lubricants. Change intervals for grease, transmission, and axle fluids will be very long and supply of lubricants for service fill will be small. Factory fill supply of EV lubricants will be the biggest sales channel, so lubricant manufacturers need to develop good OEM supply relationships.
