What is the Right Motor Oil for Your Hybrid Electric Vehicle?

Updated: Apr 4

Did you know that there are over 400,000 registered electronic vehicles in Canada? The market for EVs in North America will more than double in the next five years, reaching a whopping 478 billion dollars! If you’ve invested in or are contemplating a Hybrid EV, you’re likely aware that Hybrids still require frequent oil changes. 

But did you know your Hybrid requires specially formulated motor oil to protect critical engine parts and maintain performance and efficiency?

We’ve got you covered. Here is everything you need to know about your EV and what type of oil will meet its unique demands.

What is the most popular Electric Vehicle (EV) in Canada?

The most common EVs in Canada are Plug-in Hybrids (PHEVs). Unlike a fully electric vehicle, like Tesla, the Chevy Bolt, or the Nissan Leaf, a Hybrid combines an internal combustion (gasoline) engine with an electric motor and rechargeable battery. Hybrids can operate in electric-only mode for short distances, switching to the gasoline engine when necessary. The battery is charged by regenerative braking—where the system captures heat energy from deceleration—by the gasoline engine or simply by plugging in. 

Hybrids cost less than Full EVs, have better range, and offer superior reliability in cold weather, which we know all about in Manitoba.

The Benefits of Driving a Hybrid.

The compromise between electric and gas power offers excellent efficiency, reducing fuel consumption by up to 40%! Hybrids also benefit the environment, reducing tailpipe emissions of greenhouse gases by around 35% on average. These facts make Hybrids a big deal for your bottom line and Mother Nature’s, too!
