Total Partnership with DS


A strong historical partnership with Citroen for years

Total has been a Citroën partner for 45 years (the partnership began when Total started to develop a lubricant for the DS to eliminate the problems of ignition and fouling)

This historic partnership with the double chevron brand is part of a global strategic relationship between the PSA and the Total Group, based on four key factors:

  • R&D: close cooperation between the R&D teams of PSA and Total,
  • Industry: first-fill supply of lubricants in PSA plants worldwide,
  • Sales: global endorsement of Total lubricants for the maintenance of Citroën vehicles ("Citroën prefers Total") and Peugeot ("Peugeot recommends Total")
  • Sports: support for Citroën and Peugeot motorsports programmes.

DS became a full-fledged brand in 2014
