Renault Trezor voted concept car of the year

Renault’s Trezor concept has been named Car Design News’s 2016 Concept Design of the Year.

The judging panel was made up of the some of the most influential designers in the industry today, including chief design officer of Hyundai Motor Group Peter Schreyer and head of design at Fiat Chrysler Automobiles Ralph Gilles.

Renault’s dynamic concept took the top spot, followed by Jaguar’s I-Pace and the Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 in third.

Using a 345bhp electric motor, the Trezor is capable of reaching 60mph in under four seconds. It also gives a real insight into Renault’s future design, with its prominent front end and sharply tapered rear. It was first unveiled at the Mondial De L’Automobile Paris in September 2016.

Laurens van den Acker, senior vice-president of Groupe Renault corporate design commented: “It’s an honour to receive this award, because it’s voted by our peers, and that’s the hardest audience to satisfy.

“It’s great for our design team and their creativity, and I think it only makes us hungry for more. It stimulates us to continue.”

Anthony Lo, vice president of exterior design and Stéphane Janin, concept car director, received the highly regarded award at the Car Design of the Year Awards Ceremony at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show.
