Renault Twizy Crowned "Best of the Best 2012"

The Red Dot Design Award is an incredibly prestigious event in the international calendar, and was created in 1955 to celebrate companies that ‘like to distinguish their business activities through design’ across all industries and sectors.

A panel of thirty international design experts chose the Renault Twizy above all other submitted applications, citing its safety system, ergonomics, incredible design and agility as the Twizy’s most outstanding features.

“Twizy is a highly convincing and expressive transportation solution for mobility in the near future. This vehicle impresses the target group both through easy handling and its sophisticated concept concerning ergonomics and safety,” says the panel in a statement.

Design Director of Renault Sport Technologies, Eric Diemert, was overjoyed with the win. “We are delighted to see the concept, design lines and functions of Twizy recognized by the red dot award. Because Renault is a human-focused brand, we designed Twizy to express a new form of urban mobility, placing the emphasis on easy use.

“The way in which an object is expressed is fundamental, so we worked on general attitude from an early stage as well as on the design of the front end. The aim was to give Twizy an appeal that immediately reflects its light-hearted character.

“This award will encourage us to pursue our commitment to innovation for all that is so important to Renault range vehicles, and to make them even more innovative and attractive.”

The Twizy is the second Renault car to win the esteemed award; the Mégane II was crowned Red Dot’s design champion in 2003. The New Renault Twizy is available from £6,690 on the road.

Renault’s Twizy and other Renault vehicles are available from Perrys Aylesbury dealership.
