Participating at Automechanika Kuala Lumpur, AUTOBACS Car Service Malaysia’s primary focus was on its new engine oil.
AUTOBACS Car Service Malaysia, a leading one-stop car service centre for car maintenance service, wholesale and retail business, took part for the first time in the recently concluded 2019 edition of Automechanika Kuala Lumpur.
From the letters in the company’s name, Appeal, Unique, Tyres, Oil, Batteries, Accessories, Car electronics and Services, one could clearly identify the core of its business.
Participating at the show, AUTOBACS Car Service Malaysia’s primary focus was on its new engine oil. “To provide better performance for better driving, we decided to launch our own brand of engine oil. Co-developed with a famous oil brand, quality is ensured by full quality control during the production process and through inspection at our own facilities. Thus, when one chooses our engine oil, they could be sure of the authentic Japanese quality and reliability,” said Director Hiroaki Nezu.
Launched at the end of last year was its range of fully synthetic engine oil, the AUTOBACS 5W-30 SN/CF/GF-5, 0W-20 SN/GF-5, 5W-40 SN/CF and 0W-30 SN/GF-5.
The 5W-30 SN/CF/GF-5, he said, was AUTOBACS high quality engine oil that was specially designed and formulated with highly improved fuel efficiency compared to the conventional 5W-30 oils from the other manufacturers. It is said to be suitable for vehicles with large displacement engines and vehicles with high-output engines, including turbocharged models.
Made using synthetic-based SN/GF-5 oil, the 0W-20 SN/GF-5 is ideal for gasoline engines, including hybrid cars and cars with idling stop function as well as cars that are designated to use 0W-20 oil. Its low viscosity reduces friction on lubricated engine parts and contributes to fuel saving.
Suitable for vehicles with large engine displacements or high output (including turbocharged models) driven at extreme temperatures is the 5W-40 SN/CF. He said this 5W-40 SN/CF oil surpassed oil deterioration during long drives at high revolutions and high load, and was suitable for both gasoline and diesel vehicles.
Meanwhile, the 0W-30 SN/GF-5 contains PAO (Poly-a-Olefin) for ‘excellent’ cold start performance with improved fuel economy. It is suitable for gasoline and diesel engines in four-wheel vehicles, eco-friendly vehicles like hybrid cars and cars with idling stop function from makers that recommend 0W-20 Oil.
The company has just signed a contract with CKL recently, appointing it as the official distributor of AUTOBACS engine oil for the Malaysian market.
“Apart from the fully synthetic engine oils, we plan to launch AUTOBACS semi-synthetic lubricants in the second quarter of the year,” he revealed.
The company already launched its engine oil in Singapore and would launch it in the Philippines this month. It also distributes its engine oil to other countries, with Russia and China being the two main markets.
Currently, he said, the company had 4 outlets in Malaysia, including 2 outlets of its own in Johor Bahru and 2 franchise outlets, 1 in Klang and the other in Johor Bahru.
“We have plans to expand our retailing network but would do it step by step. The focus for us right now is to build our brand,” he added.
Also on the display were wiper blades, body coating, batteries, oil filters and Axis audio systems.
AUTOBACS Car Service Malaysia is the subsidiary of AUTOBACS Seven Co, Ltd, a public-listed company on the Tokyo Stock Exchange.
