Promises lower TCO, improved fuel economy and reduced carbon dioxide impact
Tata Motors upgraded the BS6 range of commercial vehicles
Tata Motors, India’s largest commercial vehicle manufacturer, today announced the launch of the 5W30 synthetic motor oil specially developed to enhance the performance of the new generation BS6 diesel, in keeping with its DNA of consistently delivering customer delight with the lowest total cost of ownership. engines. By extending engine life and reducing friction between moving parts, the 5W30 synthetic engine oil improves their reliability, durability and improves emissions compliance. The vehicle’s operating time on the road increases so that the carrier can earn more revenue and profits.
The new synthetic motor oil 5W30 has been extensively tested under varied and severe conditions for over three years. It has been driven for more than ten lakh kilometers in difficult terrain and logged more than 35,000 hours at the powertrain testing facilities. It uses a rich combination of high-performance polymer with a state-of-the-art additive technology blended in Group III base oil.
At this moment, Mr. Rajendra Petkar, CEO and CTO, Tata Motors said, “Sustainability today has evolved from being just a niche commitment to an absolute necessity. It forms the core of everything we develop at Tata Motors. An effective and efficient motor oil is one of the most convenient and cost-effective ways to reduce a vehicle’s carbon dioxide emissions. The cumulative effect of such simple measures thoughtfully taken for all commercial vehicles plying the road will result in an exponential improvement in carbon footprint reduction. Our team at the Engineering Research Center (ERC) has collaborated and developed lubricant formulations in-house, while working closely with strategic partners from additive manufacturing. This has enabled us to cross all unexplored innovative paths and this product is a result of such an approach.“
Global priorities are now increasingly anchored around environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors. With its commitment to reduce the emissions intensity of its GDP by 45 percent by 2030, from 2005 levels, India has also made reducing its carbon footprint a national priority.
Tata Motors has also embarked on its journey of defining ESG ambitions with a view of holistic sustainability. This introduction of synthetic motor oil for it is a step forward to deliver clean and green alternatives, beyond vehicles, to deliver improved fuel economy, longer drain intervals and improved engine wear protection, resulting in a reduced carbon footprint for vehicles.
Tata Motors has been at the forefront of technology change in the industry through its stewardship in the areas of efficiency improvements, alternative and new energy paradigms, safety, digitization and in-cabin experiences through connected vehicle technologies and a host of other value adders. All of these are glued together for the institutionalization of sustainable practices in every aspect of their operations to develop innovative mobility solutions.
