Paris, June 30, 2020 – Total Lubrifiants, the world’s fourth-largest international energy company on the lubricants market and Energica Motor Company, the Italian manufacturer of high-performing electric motorcycles, are proud to announce a new international partnership
until the end of 2022. Total Lubrifiants becomes the Official Sponsor and Industrial Partner of Energica.
Total Lubrifiants has consolidated its position as key player in electric mobility by launching an innovative range of EV fluids for electric and hybrid vehicles. Produced thanks to important efforts of the Group’s R&D teams, these products have been specially developed to meet the cooling and lubrication needs of the various components of these new types of engines and to ensure that they remain in peak condition throughout their lifetime.
TOTAL HI-PERF EV FLUID product range is in line with Total Climate Strategy and the Group’s ambition to get to net-zero emissions by 2050 together with society for its global business across its production and energy products used by its customers.
