Motul has just launched its NGEN range of sustainable, high-performance engine oils for cars and motorbikes. The motor oils either consist largely of regenerated oil (NGEN 5 and 7 for motorbikes) or a high proportion of raw materials from renewable resources (NGEN Hybrid for hybrid cars).
The lubricant specialist first introduced Motul Hybrid in 2016, which it says was the first engine oil tailored to hybrid vehicles and has now received a sustainability upgrade. Motul NGEN Hybrid contains up to 25 per cent oil from renewable raw materials and supports better fuel efficiency, as well as improved response and starting behaviour. The various additives are said to better protect
the engine against deposits and provide reliable lubrication even at low engine temperatures, typical of hybrid vehicles.
NGEN packaging is also designed to be sustainable. All bottles consist of 50% recycled plastics and are 100% recyclable.
