Valvoline ready with EV fluid lineup for India’s auto sector

Valvoline announced it is ready with a lineup of fluids designed for electric vehicles (EVs) for India’s automobile sector.

The Indian government is committed to promoting the adoption of EVs and has set a target of having 30% of all cars on the road being EVs by 2030. 

“We have the passion for innovation and for over 150 years, we are continuously researching and developing products for next-gen vehicles. The industry will see robust demand for EVs in the coming years and we are prioritizing how to best meet every vehicle owner’s needs. As we look to the future of automotive—not just domestically but abroad—we are committed to ensuring our products and services evolve, adapt and solve every consumer’s need,” said Sandeep Kalia, MD, and CEO, Valvoline India. 

In India, Valvoline Cummins Private Limited is a 50-50 joint venture between Valvoline International Inc. U.S.A and Cummins India Ltd., India’s leading manufacturer of diesel engines. 

Globally, Valvoline has created the next generation of advanced fluid solutions, from battery electric vehicles (BEVs), hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs), and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs) to autonomous vehicles and electric fleets. 

Valvoline’s next generation EV Performance Fluids are engineered to extend battery life and protect other vehicle components. They help solve common electric vehicle issues like battery temperature variations, powertrain performance, brake system corrosion, and sealed bearing failure to help keep EVs running at peak performance. 

Electric Vehicles (EVs) continue to evolve to meet the demand for lower carbon emissions. With the rise of hybrid-powered and electric vehicles, car manufacturers are facing an unprecedented engineering and design reform in the auto industry’s history.
