French and English become twinz in electric car design

RENAULT and British designer Ross Lovegrove this week took the wraps off Twin’Z.

RENAULT and British designer Ross Lovegrove this week took the wraps off Twin’Z.

This concept car is the fruit of their close collaboration and brings together two worlds where design plays an important role: the world of furniture and that of the automobile.

Twin’Z, says Renault, is a fun, modern, artistic take on the city car which plays on emotions and excites the senses.

It draws its inspiration from the heritage of some of the brand’s most emblematic models, such as the Renault 5 and Renault Twingo.

The Twin’Z is an all-electric car with rear-wheel drive and a rear-mounted motor. Renault invited British designer Ross Lovegrove to add some design flourishes and the result is an arresting blend of technology and refinement.

Lovegrove was given a free hand to imagine a cabin that is truly occupant-friendly. This project eloquently illustrates the many possible sources of inspiration that can drive design and represents an original approach to the city car.

Lovegrove’s personal vision of the car takes its inspiration from the world of nature, and the result combines an unprecedented play on light and organic forms to make Twin’Z an endearing, almost living object.
