Leading brand Castrol has agreed with Renault Group to extend its agreement to supply lubricants, enabling the lubricant maker to expand its product portfolio to include motor oil for Euro 7 vehicles.
The new deal extends an existing partnership by three years, taking it through to the end of 2027. In that time, the two firms will continue to cooperate on developing bespoke lubricants for Renault Group’s range of vehicle brands. This will include developing a brand new low-viscosity passenger car engine oil specifically for Euro 7 vehicles, with it meeting the standards set down by the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Alliance. This new AN2022 (Alliance Norm 2022) product will be released in October this year.
The VP of Partnerships at Castrol, Slawek Radon, said about the deal extension:
“Extending the aftersales agreement and working closely with Renault Group is proof of the strong and deepening partnership between the two companies. We continue to explore new business opportunities together to deliver outstanding products and services to customers.”
Renault originally chose Castrol as its lubricant partner for global aftersales service fills in 2020. Since then, the companies have collaborated in developing a custom range of jointly branded products that are offered through Renault Group’s dealership network to drivers of Alpine, Dacia, and Renault vehicles. Castrol has also benefitted from working with Renault’s Formula 1 team in pushing the boundaries of its lubricant technology to deliver performance gains on the track, which often yields knowledge that can be employed in products for road vehicles.
