Toyota’s all-new 2019 RAV4 crossover vehicle is getting lighter thanks to aluminum from Novelis. The company’s plant in Scriba, N.Y., supplies premium aluminum sheet to the automaker’s facility in Ontario, where it is cut and shaped into the RAV4′s hood, fenders and lift gate. The result is a 4% lighter vehicle despite a larger width than previous models.
