The electric vehicle grease industry find its bearings

“The field of electric vehicle (EV) grease formulations is evolving,” says STLE member Anoop Kumar, senior staff scientist and subject matter expert on grease formulations at Chevron Technical Center in Richmond, Calif.

He notes that the various EV designs are causing a “disruptive transformation” in vehicle powertrains.
