ExxonMobil recently commemorated 30 years of partnership with Mercedes-Benz India. The milestone event held at the Mercedes Benz India facility at Chakan, Pune, highlighted the collaboration between the two companies.

ExxonMobil has worked closely with Mercedes Benz to develop and supply synthetic motor oils meeting the evolving needs of their growing luxury portfolio in India comprising the A-Class Limousine, Mercedes Maybach S 580 limousines and SUVs like GLE and GLS, to name a few.

ExxonMobil’s products and services match our world-class offerings in India and underscore the customer passion that drives our collaborative spirit.”
