Starting from the first race in Saudi Arabia at the end of this year, ExxonMobil will provide Mobil-branded high-performance electric powertrain fluids to Porsche, developed specifically to meet the specialized demands of electric vehicles.

“Our entry into Formula E with Porsche not only represents an expansion to our successful business relationship, but an expansion of a winning partnership in racing,” said Russ Green, vice president, finished lubricants at ExxonMobil. “As Porsche begins to compete and demonstrate the capabilities of its electric vehicle technology, ExxonMobil is engineering a full suite of Mobil-branded lubricants to help the new Porsche Formula E team build on its legacy of racing success around the world. Motorsport provides the ultimate proving ground to continue to develop high-performance lubricants and fluids.”

Vehicles competing in electric motorsports benefit from high-performance lubricant technology that provides specialized advantages needed for the car’s battery pack including electrical conductivity, cooling capabilities and material compatibility.

“As a key technical partner of more than 20 years, no other lubricant supplier understands the Porsche performance philosophy like ExxonMobil,” said Fritz Enzinger, vice president, Porsche Motorsport. “ExxonMobil has not only been a valuable partner for our commercial business, but an important teammate in our pursuit of wins and championships from Sebring to Le Mans. They were a natural addition to our Formula E team as we enter an exciting new era of racing for Porsche.”

The new technical partnership joins ExxonMobil’s existing roster of global motorsports activities with Porsche including the World Endurance Championships, IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship, Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup, Porsche Carrera Cup and numerous customer racing activities around the world.
