GS Caltex India, a wholly-owned subsidiary of GS Caltex Corporation of South Korea, has unveiled its range of BS VI compatible lubricant and engine oil for the Indian market. The new engine oils available under the brand name Kixx are equipped to meet the stringent requirements of the new BS VI emission norms.
The company says these superior engine oils are based on advanced additive technology to deliver excellent protection and superior performance in BSVI vehicles – cars and motorcycles.
Speaking about the new product portfolio, Rajesh Nagar, MD and CEO, GS Caltex India said, “We at GS Caltex India, have been at the forefront in launching products which meet the latest requirements of the market.
