The automotive industry is at the dawn of a new era with New Energy Vehicles (NEVs) becoming progressively more important across the globe. At PETRONAS we are speeding up the development of fluids to support our customers in adopting NEVs, in the future, for the future. Through our unique approach, pushing technological boundaries and building thought-leading partnerships, we co-engineer the future enabling joint success.

PETRONAS Lubricants International pledges to spend 75% of R&D towards CO₂ reduction
Fluid Technology Solutions™
To meet the challenge of reducing the CO₂ emissions coming from vehicles the automotive industry is now undergoing a period of unprecedented change. Vehicle powertrains are becoming electrified with the integration of electric motors into the driveline, either supporting the internal combustion engine as in the case of hybrids, or completely replacing it, as in NEVs, with a battery or fuel cell as the power source. At PETRONAS we are working in partnership with Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) to ensure that we design fluid technology solutions to meet the demanding requirements of hybrid and fully electric vehicles.
The PETRONAS iona product portfolio covers the complete range of fluid applications encountered in electrified powertrains. Iona products can improve the reliability, energy efficiency and performance of electric vehicles from the small city car through to commercial vehicles such as buses, light-duty vans and long-haul trucks.
