PETRONAS Lubricants International (PLI) strengthens its historic partnership with IVECO by co-developing fluids for IVECO’s new zero-emission eDAILY vehicles, designed to maximise performance and enhance sustainable solutions for the commercial automotive industry.
The long-standing collaboration between the two industry leaders, grounded in automotive innovation and resilience since 1975, has resulted in thousands of hours of co-engineering, producing the highest-quality standard of lubricants to meet the needs of IVECO drivers. The new fluids demonstrate both PLI and IVECO’s common goal towards achieving a sustainable future.
Described to be the ‘electric twin’ of IVECO’s iconic ‘Daily’ vehicles, the 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.
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 impeccable optimised performance and durability for modern-day, high-level EVs.
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 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.”
The co-branded lubricants are only the latest result in a thirty year-long collaboration between PLI and IVECO, which benefit IVECO drivers and provide them with a guarantee that their vehicles will stay the course and perform to the highest industry standards.
