Cepsa launches new lubricants for hybrid and electric vehicles
Spanish multinational oil and gas company Compañía Española de Petróleos, S.A.U., commonly known as Cepsa, has launched its new range of XTAR lubricants and fluids for hybrid and electric vehicles. Cepsa has developed a wide range of products to meet the new requirements of this type of vehicles, designed to ensure their protection and prolong the good performance of their mechanisms.
Cepsa’s Lubricants business, together with the company’s Research Center, has designed a range of products with advanced technology and a low viscosity grade, favoring less friction in the engine and reducing fuel consumption, CO2 emissions, and the emission of other polluting gases and particles (in the case of hybrid vehicles).
“At Cepsa, we are committed to sustainable mobility and we promote it in many different areas. In this case, it is through the development of advanced lubricants and fluids that, thanks to our technical and innovative capabilities, not only meet all the needs of hybrid and electric vehicles, but also significantly reduce their environmental impact,” said Niurka Sancho, Cepsa’s director of Lubricants.
This new range of products is considered to be highly durable, reducing waste generation and contributing to increasing the life cycle of the products. In this regard, Cepsa’s Lubricants business has been committed to sustainability for years through various initiatives, such as the use of 30% recycled plastic containers, the replacement of drums with reusable IBC containers, and the optimization of distribution logistics, which reduces the carbon footprint of their transportation.
Cepsa manufactures these products at its lubricants plant in San Roque, Cadiz, Spain, from where they are distributed to more than 80 countries. This new range of lubricant products will be available through the company’s usual distribution channels, which include an extensive network of 1,800 service stations in Spain and Portugal, as well as specialized workshops and official distributors.
