Shell Lubricants has launched the fully synthetic ‘Shell Helix HX8’ for all cars including SUV’s, hatchbacks, sedans, MUVs for Rs 850/litre in packs of 3.5L, 4.5L 1L, across India. It provides 40% better wear and 78% better corrosion protection as well as 58% better oxidation stability and high-temperature deposit control versus industry reference oil, claims the company.
“In India, most SUVs are powered by turbocharged engines that provide higher power output for smaller capacity which means higher stress on vital engine parts. Therefore, we identified the need of engine oil which adapts to severe conditions and protects the engine in every drive. With ‘Shell Helix HX8’, we will be able to cater to the changing demand of the consumers and strengthen our commitment to Indian market and expand our portfolio,” said Mansi Tripathy, Country General Manager, Shell Lubricants, India.
The dynamic Flexi Molecules in Shell Helix HX8 activate in response to changes in engine stress levels, enhancing fuel economy and engine longevity by activating when the pressure is on. Overall, this results in a 30% faster flow in low temperatures allowing the oils to reach critical engine parts quickly for easier starting and warm up, said the company.
