This is why we are thrilled to be extending our partnership with Nissan e.dams, one of the sport’s most successful teams. Not only will we be providing them with cutting-edge, high-performance E-fluids and E-greases for use on the track, but the knowledge we gain can then be used to inform the development of our road-going products, helping us to achieve our goal of being the world’s leading full-spectrum mobility company,”
