Anthony Lo — Yes, and we are very proud of the work achieved. Renault’s design strategy is based on the life cycle, exploring the experiences of our customers as they fall in love, discover the world, create a family, work, enjoy leisure, and attain wisdom. The teams covered all these experiences over a six-year period and met the major challenge of entirely renewing the range through new vehicles or new generations of vehicles.
— It is indeed a new beginning. TreZor celebrates what we have achieved and announces what we want to do next. What does TreZor express? That we want to continue developing a simple, to-the-point language. And that we want to go further in terms of details. We are initiating the new cycle with the theme of love. TreZor expresses a mature sensibility, a strong commitment. We have exaggerated some of the details such as the front-end signature. We have introduced new materials, including an unprecedented “faceted” carbon exterior. Vehicle entry and exit is also innovative. There are no conventional doors; it’s like getting into a sports car.
— Our objective is to stand apart in terms of concepts and design. It would be risky for us to merely follow trends. For example, the Chinese market today is dominated by SUVs. Does that mean we should replace this vehicle generation with the same thing? I’m not so sure. SUVs are the latest thing but what will the next thing be? One of the keys to success is becoming more international, learning how to read the needs of our markets, observing so as to improve our concepts. The success of the Renault Samsung QM3 in the highly demanding South Korean market shows that this objective is within our reach.
— The Design team is staffed by people of 29 nationalities with diverse backgrounds. The recent reorganization of the Technocentre design centre in France will bring us closer together around a shared core, since our studios look over the workshop where we can constantly see the progress being made on prototypes and models. Renault is also one step ahead in term of imaging tools. Very early on in the process, we can visualize designs in 3D and share future concepts with our partner departments. This is vital to creating trust in the projects.

The integration of connectivity and multimedia systems has opened up the design field. Concept cars are now designed in a cross-disciplinary fashion by the Design teams and those at Engineering.
By changing the driving and traveling experience of our customers, the advent of the connected vehicle sets new design challenges. The objective is to better integrate these new “control centers”, which now play a central role on the dashboard.
