Understanding the Chinese Automotive Market (Part 4)

Posted by Mike McCabe, Global Marketing Director

I recently had the opportunity to talk to Robin Wang, Lubrizol's Marketing Manager in China, about how the Chinese automotive market is changing as a result of the increase in vehicle sales and the introduction of China 6 emissions legislation along with new fuel efficiency regulations.

In fourth and final video in our four-part series, we discuss how the introduction of higher emissions limits with China 6 will result in the widespread usage of diesel particulate filters (DPFs) on commercial vehicles and lead to a shift in lubricant quality in the coming years. Today, the main type of commercial vehicle lubricant seen in China can be characterized as an API CH-4 15W-40. Robin explains how he sees this changing to a higher performance levels and lower viscosity lubricants, particularly API CK-4 10W-30 or 5W-30.
