TOTAL, Technological Partner of NISSAN ZEOD RC
NISSAN and TOTAL cooperated in 2014 on a highly innovative and technically challenging project: NISSAN “ZERO EMISSIONS ON DEMAND” Racing Car (ZEOD RC).
History was made at the 24 Hours of Le Mans 2014, when the Nissan ZEOD RC* completed a full all-electric lap of the legendary 13.6-kilometer circuit during qualifying, at speeds matching GT category cars.
The prototype attracted attention when it clocked 300 kilometers per hour without using a single drop of gasoline.
The lubricants Total supplied for the Nissan ZEOD RC were customized, drawing on our wide motorsports expertise.
The engine oil was adapted to the requirements of a powerful 400 horsepower engine, downsized in term of size and weight (3 cylinders, 1.5 liters, 40 Kg), and fully capable of performing on a par with current F1 engines. The battery fluid ensured good reliability and boosted engine performance.
