New Castrol MAGNATEC HYBRID with DUALOCK Technology is designed to withstand the severe challenges in today's hybrid engines and provides 50% better protection from engine wear ⁽¹⁾
Castrol Magnatec Hybrid
In a hybrid, the engine operates intermittently, swapping to electric power at low speeds to move the vehicle creating challenges:
UP TO 40°C COOLER THAN A NON-HYBRID VEHICLE (2)
In typical urban driving the engine may only be in use for short periods before switching back to electric power, so it is often running up to 40°C cooler.
10x MORE RE-STARTS
Some hybrid engines can stop, switch to electric and re-start up to 500,000 times(3) during their lifetime – that’s 10 times more than a non-hybrid
This also creates more contamination, because without the extra heat from the engine, water and other contaminants do not evaporate.
HYSPEC – A NEW HYBRID STANDARD
Our oil delivers against HYSPEC, Castrol’s new standard for hybrid performance(4). HYSPEC is informed by two billion pieces of data, real-world road trials and insights from motorsport and partner OEMs, gathered over 25 years of testing and research.
