The brave new world of electric vehicle fluids

The brave new world of electric vehicle fluids

emerging technologies, energy
Electric vehicle fluids differ in fundamental ways from those used for internal combustion engines—and from each other. TLT October 2021 • Electric vehicle (EV) transmission fluids, which multitask as lubricants and coolants, are likely to be formulated as vehicle design elements, with fill-for-life applications in mind.• EV fluid formulations may help dissipate stray electrical currents, and they must be compatible with the copper wiring and polymer seals and insulators with which they come into contact. • Thermal management fluids for battery and power electronics systems are an active area for development.
