Texaco Lubricants has introduced a new range of electric fluids (e-fluids) into its product line. The e-fluids range has been added to Texaco’s portfolio of products to support the growing electric vehicle market. In line with our aim to lower the carbon intensity of our operations and grow lower carbon businesses, renewable base oils will be implemented into the e-fluids range to help reduce the lifecycle carbon intensity of the business’ product offerings.
Texaco is part of the Chevron family of brands, and is also currently developing an e-fluids range that will be available for use in commercial vehicles. The business is formulating dedicated heavy-duty diesel e-fluids to help address the specific technical requirements within the sector. Across both automotive and industrial applications, Texaco will develop a low conductive coolant, while concurrently developing a bespoke e-grease portfolio of products.
The e-fluids will be integrated into vehicles at the manufacturers’ factories. Aftermarket specifications of the Texaco Lubricants e-fluids range will not be available.
Texaco’s e-fluid development has been driven by multiple factors, including technological advancements and legislative changes, such as the upcoming bans on the sale of new petrol, diesel, and in some cases, hybrid vehicles in many countries across Europe.
Paul Van de Ven, Chevron Regional Product Line Manager, said,
“We cannot deny the importance of the ongoing evolution of the electric vehicle market and the electrification of mobile equipment. Chevron is leveraging its strengths and building on its capabilities to help drive progress at the speed and scale necessary to meet the world’s goals. The Texaco range of e-fluids will help our customers achieve their own emissions reduction goals and implement e-mobility solutions.”
