PETRONAS co-develops fluids with IVECO for commercial EVs

PETRONAS Lubricants International (PLI) has co-developed fluids for IVECO’s new zero-emission eDAILY vehicles, designed to maximize performance and enhance sustainable solutions for the commercial automotive industry.

PETRONAS Iona Integra Plus has been developed for the eDAILYs e-Transfer box, specifically designed to reduce churning losses, whilst ensuring the durability of the system. This is comparable to higher viscosities in standard fluids and ensures excellent oxidation properties, even in the case of high temperatures. PETRONAS Iona delivers optimised performance and durability for modern-day, high-level EVs.

PETRONAS has been in partnership with IVECO since 1975 to produce high quality lubricants for IVECO vehicles. The new fluids demonstrate both PLI and IVECO’s common goal towards achieving a sustainable future.

IVECO’s eDAILY covers all commercial vehicle usage applications – including heavy-duty missions and conversions. The new EV represents a significant contribution to the decarbonization of transport vehicles for commercial use, backed by fluids that improve performance to make vehicles last longer. The eDAILY vehicles will also be using the PETRONAS Tutela Axle 900 HD, a SAE 75W-85 axle oil that has been developed for the whole range of IVECO axles, including light and heavy-duty vehicles, to maximise efficiency and meet the latest regulations requirements.

Domenico Ciaglia, Managing Director for Europe, Middle East, and Africa (EMEA) at PLI said, “We know that unbeatable performance is vital for IVECO drivers, many of whom take on long and demanding journeys. The PETRONAS Iona and Tutela ranges for IVECO’s new eDAILY EVs demonstrate the importance of partnership between our two companies. The joint efforts in innovation, co-engineering and collaborations will certainly contribute to creating a more sustainable future for the automotive industry.”
