Total and Mazda have renewed a partnership that will see the lubricant specialist supply 2,300 of the Japanese brand’s garages, repair shops and authorised dealers until 2020.
The partnership ensures the continuation of Total’s exclusive supply of the Mazda Original Oils range to dealership networks spanning over 45 countries, mainly in Europe.
Total said that Mazda cars have travelled more than 140 billion kilometres since the partnership was first established and development work has seen products specifically created for the brand’s Skyactiv engine range.
Jeff Guyton President and CEO of Mazda Europe, added: “Our partnership with Total is strategically important for Mazda and for our customers.
“With the development of our new generation engines, excellent lubrication performance is essential for the performance and durability of the engines. The benefit from using Mazda Original Oil is obvious for our dealers and our customers.”

“The performance of the lubricants and the quality of the services – in particular in terms of training – provided by our teams to the garages, repair shops and dealerships directly serve the customers of the Mazda network.”
