WORLD FIRST: RIWALD DAKAR TEAM TO DAKAR 2020 WITH HYBRID RALLY TRUCK
The Riwald Dakar Team and Czech partner MKR Technology, have been working hard for months on the development of an entirely new and unique concept; a hybrid off-road truck. The project is supported by partners – ZF Friedrichshafen – Renault Trucks – Hendrickson – AxleTech – Eurol.
The Renault Trucks C460 Hybrid Edition was unveiled on Friday 27 September.
This is the time for the right choice
At a time when the environment has become a major global issue, the focus in developing the truck has been on hybrid technology. The Renault Trucks C460 Hybrid Edition is a lightweight truck which, including the 700 kilos of hybrid technology, has reached the ideal weight of 8.5 tonnes.
Gert Huzink from the Riwald Dakar Team extensively tested the Renault Trucks C460 Hybrid Edition recently. The hybrid drive system, comprising Eurol Specialty lubricants, has been exposed to extreme conditions and tested, with promising results.
The Riwald Dakar Team and MKR have entered into a three-year partnership with the aim of achieving a top three ranking in the rally world within that period. The Riwald Dakar Team and its partners are convinced that the electrical technology in the truck can bring about a transition.
Hybrid truck in Dakar rally
This circular vision is set by A.S.O, the organisation of the toughest rally in the world; the Dakar Rally, and is followed with enthusiasm. They would like to see the Riwald Dakar Team with Gert Huzink behind the wheel of the new Renault Trucks C460 Hybrid Edition at the start of Dakar 2020.
