NOVI, Michigan, Oct. 14, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Maxion Wheels is proud to announce reaching sales of more than 1 million VersaStyle wheels in 2014. As the world's largest wheel producer, Maxion Wheels first introduced VersaStyle wheels in 2005 to meet a demand for a wheel with universal appeal and versatility and have sold more than 15 million VersaStyle wheels since their introduction. Renault will take delivery of more than one million VersaStyle wheels for their Megane, Megane Scenic, Clio and the Dacia Logan and Dacia Sandero Stepway models this year alone.
The VersaStyle® (high vent) wheel was introduced as a technology to provide wheels with aluminum styling in a steel construction, and to support our customers' need for cross-platform standardization. The VersaStyle wheel was designed to mate with a variety of claddings so that it can be used across multiple vehicle platforms to allow each vehicle to have its own "signature" style without the time and cost of developing individual wheels.
"We set a very aggressive sales target for our VersaStyle wheels and it is extremely gratifying to meet and exceed those expectations," said Bill Wardle, Global Vice-President, Sales and Marketing for Maxion Wheels.
