Shell, one of the leading international energy companies in India, has announced that it has entered into a new multi-year partnership with Mahindra Racing. The company says that this alliance will strengthen the technical and commercial collaboration between the two businesses. Shell joined Mahindra Racing as a sponsor of their Formula E programme in December 2018 and this new agreement forms part of a wide-ranging co-operation between the two companies. 

Shell manufactures, distributes, and markets lubricants for Mahindra’s automotive and agricultural divisions in India and South Africa. Moreover, lubricants scientists from Shell’s global technology centres are working alongside Mahindra to develop new lubricant solutions which will drive performance improvement in their vehicles. The company says that the Formula E partnership offers an important opportunity for Shell to showcase its technical leadership in E-Fluids. 

Shell has formulated a bespoke E-Transmission fluid for Mahindra Racing’s M7Electro race car, which the company says played an important role in the team’s race-winning and podium performances in season 7. According to the energy major, this new specialized fluid enhances the efficiency of the transmission which helps improve the car’s performance on the racetrack.
