We look back at 50 years of a partnership studded with business and racing successes that helped build both companies’ international standing.
Since the partnership’s began in 1968, Total has helped drive Citroën’s industrial growth worldwide by supplying a wide range of automobile lubricants. Over the decades, the two companies have jointly developed lubricants specifically for Citroën engines, to make them ever more fuel efficient and environmentally friendly.
The environment is a core concern for Citroën and Total. The pair has pledged to drastically curtail their environmental impact, notably by reducing carbon emissions. Their R&D teams co-develop specific solutions that fit the bill.
