Servicing and Maintaining Hybrid and Electric Vehicles

In this episode of the Lubrizol 360 podcast, we discuss the service and maintenance implications of the growing number of hybrid and electric vehicles. We sit down with Lubrizol’s Martin Birze and My Hang Truong discuss how vehicles like the BMW i3, Chevy Volt and Toyota Prius are changing how engine oil and driveline fluids are formulated. We also cover what shops need to know to service older electrified vehicles.
