Colas gets the keys to a hybrid Renault Truck

Because it pays special attention its businesses’ impact on the environment, the Colas Group has been tapped by Renault Trucks to join in on the development phase of a hybrid truck designed for use on worksites.

The two companies have a longstanding working relationship, which naturally led to the partnership on this project, a symbol of their mutual commitment to protecting the environment.    

On September 15, Mr. Hervé Le Bouc, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Colas, was handed the keys to a Premium Distribution Hybrys Tech by Mr. Stefano Chmielewski, President of Renault Trucks. 

Still in its test phase, the hybrid dump truck is particularly well suited for urban worksites.  The electric motor, which charges every time the driver uses the brakes, helps ensure savings in city traffic conditions and during loading/unloading.
