Formula e

Today’s association with the FIA Formula E Championship is the latest chapter in the collaboration between DS and Total which dates back to the 1960s when Total developed a lubricant and fluids for the celebrated DS.

This partnership focuses on the development of dedicated products, lubricants and fluids allowing to improve the car’s efficiency in terms of power, as well as reducing the quantity of energy it consumes.

Total now supports DS Performance with its  DSV-02, the all-electric single-seater racing car within the FIA Formula E Championship.



An unprecedented commitment Alongside its involvement in Formula 1 and several FIA World Championships, the Total Group is fully involved in endurance through new programs that are both ambitious and representative of strong values.

Having been seduced for a long time by the incomparable characteristics of this sport, the Total group is very much involved in this discipline which appears to be a perfect test bed for its products whether it be lubricants for engines, gearboxes, transmissions, or brake fluids and cooling liquids.

A prestigious partnership in GT

Again this season, the Total group will be present on several fronts, assisting several partners through its expertise and technology. The great novelty of this commitment is the recent partnership signed with one of the most prestigious brands in the world: Aston Martin. Total is now “Energy partner” both for Aston Martin Lagonda and its road vehicles and for Aston Martin Racing in competition.

Citroen car

Our engineers are meeting the challenge to develop a lubricant that can produce an oil film just a few microns thick, while still reducing friction for perfect engine performance. Our team frequently analyzes oil samples to ensure that Citroën's WRC DS3 cars are getting the best from our lubricants, whether in the searing heat of Cyprus or the plunging temperatures of Sweden. With only one engine allowed at every other rally, TOTAL's delivery of world-class products - whatever the conditions - is key to the Citroën-Total Team's success.
