TotalEnergies Lubricants has forged partnerships with a range of the world’s top vehicle manufacturers. Through these partnerships, TotalEnergies shares its cutting-edge R&D capabilities, knowledge and experience with global leaders, while at the same time we gain first-hand experience of the latest developments in engine technology. We can then develop new products accordingly. The way we collaborate with our partners in the industry is something we are very proud of and we are always looking for new opportunities to establish and strengthen our partnerships.
Stellantis and TotalEnergies - working together since 2021
In 2021 TotalEnergies and Stellantis announce the renewal of their partnership for the next five years for the Peugeot, Citroën and DS Automobiles brands. The two Groups are also opening a new chapter with its expansion to include Opel and Vauxhall. These global cooperation agreements now cover five core areas:
- Increased collaboration in Research & Development, with common R&D objectives in terms of sustainable development and innovation, particularly in new forms of mobility, low-carbon or bio-sourced fuels, lubricants and fluids specially optimized for new electrified engines and their components, including batteries.
- “First-fill” lubricants, with the supply of lubricants by TotalEnergies for vehicles produced in the factories of the five Stellantis Group brands concerned throughout the world.
- Exclusive recommendation of Quartz lubricants in the after-sales and maintenance networks of the Peugeot, Citroën, DS Automobiles, Opel and Vauxhall brands. Approved repair specialists have access to TotalEnergies' high-tech motor oils, specifically developed for the engines of these five brands of vehicles, guaranteeing performance, reliability and fuel savings.
- Automobile competition, with technical and sporting cooperation which will henceforth focus exclusively on the various electric and hybrid programmes launched by the brands:
- Peugeot's return to the 24 Hours of Le Mans and the FIA-World Endurance Championship in the Hypercar category for hybrid prototypes, with the design of batteries resulting from the collaboration between Peugeot Sport and TotalEnergies, through its subsidiary SAFT, as well as the development of specific fluids.
- Continued support for the title holding team DS-TECHEETAH in the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship, an electric single-seater competition with the development of the Quartz EV Fluid range.
- A new partnership with Opel Motorsport which launches the Opel Corsa-e Rally Cup, the first electric rally world cup
- Mobility and EV charging are a new aspect of this partnership. Free2Move, the Mobility Brand of Stellantis, will use the network of charging stations operated by TotalEnergies for its car-sharing activity in Paris. Other proposals related to simpler electric mobility are also under consideration.
Vauxhall and TotalEnergies – powering Vauxhall for years to come
In 2021 Vauxhall and TotalEnergies announced the signature of global partnership agreements covering the period from January 1, 2021 to December 31, 2025.
The agreements are based on four key components:
- Increased collaboration in R&D, based on shared sustainable development and innovation objectives, to develop optimized lubricants and fluids for new hybrid and electric powertrains.
- The supply of first-fill lubricants by Total to Vauxhall plants.
- The exclusive aftermarket recommendation of TOTAL QUARTZ lubricants in Vauxhall dealer networks worldwide. For optimum customer satisfaction, an additional range of co-branded products, “OPEL/VAUXHALL Motor oil by TOTAL”, will also be offered.
- Easier access to electric mobility for all our customers.
Nissan and TotalEnergies – a winning combination
For more than a decade, TotalEnergies and Nissan have been working together, pooling our technological resources and automotive expertise both on the road and on the track. Nissan Genuine Oils are one of the results of this partnership. TotalEnergies' experts have designed these technologically advanced lubricants specifically to maximise the power and performance of Nissan vehicles. Nissan recommends these oils for all its petrol and diesel engines.
In 2014, Nissan and TotalEnergies made history at the Le Mans speedway when the Nissan Zero Emissions On Demand Racing Car (ZEOD RC) completed a full lap of the circuit powered by electricity. The prototype performed like a GT car, reaching speeds of 300km/h without using a single drop of petrol. TotalEnergies supplied lubricants custom made for the car, which delivered the equivalent of 400hp in full electric mode.
Kia and TotalEnergies – an Alliance of Skills
Together, TotalEnergies and Kia have formed an ‘Alliance of Skills’, combining our joint strengths in the global marketplace to develop high quality products and services for an unrivalled customer experience.
