Shell Lubricants has rolled out Shell Advance AX5 Scooter engine oil, a product designed exclusively for four-stroke automatic scooters, in India. The new engine oil is now available across the country and has been priced at INR 280 (USD 4.29) for an 800 milliliter (ml) pack.
Consisting of a premium mineral base oil and a scooter-specific additive pack with Active Cleansing Technology, the product aims to prevent oil thickening and reduction in the formation of insoluble deposits, while promoting cooling in the engine.
Shell Advance AX5 Scooter is available in SAE 10W-30 viscosity grade, and meets API SL and JASO MB specifications.
At present, the scooter segment in India is heavily dependent on products designed for bikes to meet their requirements.
“There is a distinct disparity in the Indian market with respect to lubricants available for various segments. Within the two-wheeler segment, scooters still remain a relatively untapped market for lubricants in India,” said Shell Lubricants India’s Managing Director Nitin Prasad.
“Shell Advance AX5 Scooter is a proud addition to Shell Lubricant’s expanding product portfolio and presents us with an opportunity to strengthen and diversify our offerings in India.”
Shell Advance AX5 Scooter is an extension of the Shell Advance portfolio in India.
Mansi Tripathy, chief marketing officer, said that the company has “rolled out an extensive Pan India on-ground awareness program along with stakeholder engagement campaigns to create a buzz around the product.”
