Valvoline Global Operations Offers Hybrid Vehicle Owners New Portfolio of Fluids

New Hybrid Vehicle Performance Fluids from Valvoline 

Valvoline Global has announced a new portfolio of Valvoline hybrid engine performance fluids that are specifically engineered for the unique needs of hybrid engines.

Hybrid vehicle adoption is rapidly growing, with sales recently rising 76%, now accounting for five percent of U.S. light vehicle sales. Consumers are increasingly choosing hybrid vehicles because of fuel efficiency, lower emissions and extended driving range compared to electric vehicles, but many are unaware of the unique maintenance needs required to keep engines running at peak performance. Without proper maintenance products, engines can be vulnerable to water contamination and corrosion, potentially leading to decreased performance and longevity.

“Hybrid vehicles are a critical spoke in the future of mobility – and new motors need new solutions,” said Jamal Muashsher, Valvoline Global CEO. “As the automotive industry is evolving, we’re inventing the way forward so all of our customers can have the technology they need, no matter their vehicle preference.”

The new Hybrid Vehicle Performance Fluids from Valvoline are the first full suite of products engineered from the ground-up for the specific needs of hybrid engines. The product line includes:

  • Motor Oil with Trap & Lock Technology that protects hybrids from water contamination that can form from lower operating temperatures than traditional engines;
  • Transmission Fluid that supports the long-term health of hybrid transmissions by protecting copper parts; and
  • Antifreeze that helps maximize the battery life and cooling system performance of hybrid vehicles.

“We knew that addressing hybrid vehicle needs required a fresh approach, not just testing existing products on hybrids,” said Roger England, vice president and chief research and development officer at Valvoline Global. “Our new set of products were engineered in our engine lab by our top researchers and engineers so hybrid owners can feel confident that their vehicles are protected and optimized with smart, customized solutions.”

Unlike other hybrid products on the market today, Valvoline’s Hybrid Vehicle Performance Motor Oil with Trap & Lock Technology provides superior protection against fuel and water contamination, which is a critical issue for hybrids.

Valvoline’s Hybrid Vehicle Performance Fluids are available in select U.S. retailers now. Learn more about Valvoline’s hybrid technology and solutions.
