Mobil 1 announces launch of low-viscosity oil for hybrid engines

Mobil 1™ announced the launch of Mobil 1™ Hybrid 0W-20,  its newest full-synthetic, low-viscosity motor oil, specially formulated for hybrid engines. 

Mobil 1’s latest motor oil formulation, developed with its signature Triple Action Formula, is specifically engineered to support hybrid engines as they operate differently than traditional, non-hybrid, internal combustion engines.

In hybrid vehicles, power shifts between the engine and the battery meaning hybrid engines generally run at lower operating temperatures. This can allow for the buildup of harmful contaminants, like fuel and water, to accumulate in the engine which can lead to rust and corrosion. Mobil 1 Hybrid Advanced Full Synthetic Motor Oil has a special additive designed to help keep water and additional contaminants away from critical engine parts, ExxonMobil said.

“We collaborate with the world’s leading automakers on advanced engine technologies and recognise that hybrid engines have distinct needs. That’s why we set out to develop a new oil formulation specially for hybrid vehicles,”said Bryce Huschka, Consumer Marketing and Growth manager, on behalf of Mobil 1. “We’re excited to introduce Mobil 1™ Hybrid Oil with unique benefits to ensure our drivers can feel confident that their engines are protected, get more out of their vehicles, and continue to celebrate their love of driving.”
