Charged EVs | Mobil 1 thermal management fluid improves Porsche electric race car performance

Oil and gas giant ExxonMobil and German auto brand Porsche have collaborated to introduce a 3-in-1 thermal management fluid for an electric racing car.

The Mobil 1 thermal management fluid meets the needs of the Porsche GT4 e-Performance, a racing car with a new cooling system. The Porsche GT4 e-Performance can deliver a peak output of up to 800 kW (1,088 HP) and its 900-volt technology charges the batteries from 5% to 80% in 15 minutes. Its direct oil cooling system prevents thermal derating and maintains constant power output for 30 minutes in race mode. 

ExxonMobil also offers a full range of Mobil EV products, including Mobil EV Therm, Mobil EV Drive, Mobil EV Cool Drive and Mobil EV Grease—products that provide wear protection, heat dissipation and lubrication for electric motors, batteries, transmissions and bearings.

“We now have a single Mobil 1 thermal management fluid that we can use across all three components of the cooling system, helping reduce overall system weight,” explains Rüdiger Klutinus, Porsche HV Engineer. “It helps optimize power delivery during acceleration and recuperation, extend battery life and enable faster charging during breaks to help increase track times. It also delivers enhanced e-motor durability and power electronics efficiency, providing sustained power for longer.”
