Gulf Oil Lubricants India Ltd. has announced an exclusive partnership with Altigreen, based in Bengaluru, India, for the supply of electric vehicle (EV) fluids, such as brake fluids and gear oils. 

The exclusive partnership agreement was signed between Ravi Chawla, managing director and CEO of Gulf Oil Lubricants India, and Dr. Amitabh Saran, co-founder and CEO of Altigreen in Bengaluru, on December 23.

The first product โ€“ AGP Gear Oil will soon be available at Altigreen sales and service channels. This and other Gulf EV Fluids will soon power Altigreenโ€™s Low Deck and High Deck cargo electric vehicles.

Founded in 2013, Altigreen designs, engineers and produces commercial electric vehicles for the last-mile transportation segment.

Their partnership will give Altigreen direct access to the R&D capabilities of Gulf Oil Lubricants India for a complete portfolio of vehicle fluids optimized specifically for electric vehicle requirements.

Gulf Oil introduced a range of EV fluids in September 2021, such as Gulf Formula Hybrid for EVs and hybrid vehicles, Gulf eLEC Coolant, Gulf eLEC Driveline Fluid, and Gulf eLEC Brake Fluid.

โ€œThis partnership highlights commitment from both brands to help India achieve environmental targets partly through the progress on electrification of vehicles by the year 2030. With every OEM partnership, Gulf as a lubricant brand understands the changing demands of electric vehicles and develops products that will go a long way. Through this collective work towards the development of the E-mobility ecosystem, Gulf is optimistic about providing significant solutions for the performance and efficiency of EVs,โ€ Chawla said.

โ€œAltigreen is determined to change the way three-wheeler electric cargo vehicles are manufactured and experienced in India. Our partnership with Gulf for its extensive line of specially formulated high-end EV Fluids will provide our customers and end-users with advanced solutions that further improve the efficiency and driveability of EVs. These EV fluids will provide optimum levels of lubrication ensuring increased durability of e-axle components. We hope to have a long partnership with Gulf that will help accelerate the adoption of electric three-wheelers in India,โ€ said Saran.
