The transition to electric mobility remained remarkably resilient during the turbulent years of the pandemic. Sustainability concerns and rapid technological advances in the fields of electric powertrain, ride sharing, and autonomous vehicles are key factors driving the growth of electric vehicles. The advent of electric mobility has the potential to greatly reduce the consumption of passenger car motor oils (PCMO). Emerging driving patterns and alternative car ownership models will further reduce PCMO consumption.
