Thanks to important efforts of the Group’s R&D teams, these products have been specially developed to meet the cooling and lubrication needs of the various components of these new types of vehicles and to ensure that they remain in peak condition throughout their lifetime. Total researchers focused their studies on four main characteristics required by any electric or hybrid application: dielectric properties, compatibility with new electrification components, temperature constraints and conventional lubrication services for transmissions.

The acknowledgment of this innovative range of fluids for electric and hybrid vehicles by Fuels and Lubes Asia confirms Total's position as a leading player in electric mobility. This line of fluids for electric and hybrid vehicles, now available from Total Lubrifiants, is in line with Total Climate Strategy and the Group’s ambition to reduce the carbon footprint of the energy products offered to its customers. These products join the other electric mobility solutions Total offers through a variety of concrete applications for charging, storage, and fleet management.

“Through extensive research efforts, we are proud to have developed products that align with the new needs of electric mobility ” explains Phillipe CHARLEUX, Senior Vice President Lubricants and Specialities at Total. TOTAL QUARTZ EV FLUID innovative range meets vehicle manufacturers’ needs and will help them design increasingly efficient electric and hybrid vehicles. This award emphasizes also our engaged teams and their tremendous contribution to this great success story.”
