Aluminum Wheels to Help Hybrid Truck Gain Green Credentials

Renault Trucks and Coca-Cola Enterprises Belgium (CCEB) are joining forces to reduce their environmental impact, and Alcoa wheels are playing a part.

Renault Trucks is making a test vehicle with a hybrid propulsion system available to Coca-Cola Enterprises Belgium - a move which will speed up development of the Renault Premium Distribution Hybrys Tech by having it used under actual operating conditions.

To make the vehicle even more environmentally friendly, it is equipped with Alcoa forged aluminum wheels with the easy to clean Dura-Bright® surface treatment. Alcoa wheels are not only lighter than steel, but also stronger and are 100% recyclable. Their reduced weight results in fewer emissions.
