Renault to attend Grand Designs Live Show

Based on the Channel 4 TV series, and presented by design guru Kevin McCloud, the London Grand Designs Live event runs from 3rd to 11th May 2014. It will be packed with more than 500 exhibitors, across seven different sections, covering interiors, gardens, food and housewares, kitchens and bathrooms, home improvement, self-build, renovations, technology and shopping.

Renault will be showcasing its eye-catching small car line-up, including the seductive Paris-designed Clio, adventurous Captur crossover, and 100 per cent electric showstoppers the ZOE and Twizy, the futuristic urban compact, at the big events later in the year.

As part of its new ‘Life Designed’ campaign, the shows at ExCeL and the NEC Arena, which attract innovative and creative exhibitors and personalities from across the country, are the perfect destination for design-conscious Renault.

VIPs and celebrities joining the thousands of consumers now booking their tickets will also benefit from Renault’s zero emission shuttle service in flagship electric model ZOE, which expertly blends stunning looks with intelligent innovation.

Mihai Bordeanu, Director, Marketing at Renault UK, said: “We are proud to be Official Automotive Sponsor of Grand Designs Live 2014. We believe that great design isn’t merely just about looking good on the surface; it’s also about using its functionality to fit into your lifestyle.

From the convenient hands-free keycard and touchscreen navigation, to our washable and removable seat covers. That’s why our cars aren’t just beautiful, they’re designed for life.

“Life is our inspiration. It’s what puts people at the heart of everything we do. And it’s a passion for life that dares us to imagine different, gives us our competitive spirit and drives us to be a champion of progress, whether it’s winning on the F1 track or pioneering the first electric vehicle range."

The ZOE is sure to attract special attention when it appears at the Grand Design Live shows. The electric car recently celebrated its first anniversary since it first went on sale to customers.

The five-door Renault ZOE offers a high standard in space, comfort and equipment. The electric motor produces 88bhp and gives the Renault a maximum travel range of 130 miles, or 64 to 92 miles in the real world.

The Renault ZOE is an attractive option for motorists looking for a versatile family car with very low running costs. Pricing for the Renault ZOE currently begin at £18,443.
