In order to reduce the costs of hauliers operating in urban or periurban environments, Renault Trucks is now offering an Optifuel pack on the Midlum. This has been optimised to reduce consumption by as much as possible. This Midlum incorporates a powertrain with a robotised Optitronic gearbox and the option of making low consumption the priority rather than pulling power by inhibiting the "Power" mode. Furthermore, the vehicle is equipped with the "automatic engine cutout", a system which automatically shuts down the engine when the vehicle has been stationary, without any action from the driver, for five minutes.
Produced in partnership with Michelin, this Midlum comes with tyres produced by this manufacturer. As a complement to this pack, and to reduce consumption even further, Renault Trucks recommends the use of roof and side deflectors, as well as the Optifuel Infomax consumption monitoring and analysis software. This programme makes it possible to extract consumption data from the vehicle, analysing it according to driving style and the type of assignment the vehicle is carrying out.
