According to Shell, lubricants developed for internal combustion engines are not suitable for use in electric vehicles. The company claims that the E-Fluids optimize the performance of EVs. The ultra-low viscosity fluids are claimed to reduce the lifecycle emissions of EVs, extend their lifespans and increase vehicle efficiency.

The EV market is said to be growing at 40-50% per year. According to the International Energy Agency estimates, there could be 280 million EVs on the roads by 2040.

Smart branding, I must say. "E-Fluids" sounds really cool.

Poor lubricant makers. If & when EVs go mainstream, they're going to lose a big part of their market = engine oils & the repeat 10,000 km oil changes! Not to mention the double whammy to companies like IOC etc. who also sell petrol & diesel.
