Renault Trezor Wins 2016 Concept Car Design Of The Year Award
The jurors praised its low-slung muscular body and futuristic interior cabin.
Renault managed to impress the crowd gathered at last year’s Paris Motor Show with its stunning Trezor concept taking the shape of an all-electric coupe featuring a massive one-piece clamshell roof.
Thanks to its spectacular design, a judging panel consisting of no less than 20 renowned car designers decided to award the company with the diamond logo and its rear-wheel-drive showcar the title for the “2016 Concept Car Design of the Year.”
- 0 to 100 km/h (0-62mph) time of less than 4 seconds
- 260 kW and 380 Nm electric motor (RWD)
- 1,600 kg weight
It’s worth pointing out the Trezor’s body is more than just a pretty face as the shape was the result of extensive aerodynamic tweaks to low the drag coefficient to only 0.22 as way to boost performance and efficiency. Stretching at 4.7 meters long and with a generous 2.7-meter wheelbase, the two-seater electric concept has a curvaceous body made entirely out of carbon fiber to keep the weight low.
For obvious reasons, the Trezor won’t ever hit the assembly line, but the good news is the car’s styling serves as a preview for a new design approach from Renault set to be implemented on production cars in the years to come. That means we are in for a treat and hopefully the concept’s appearance will rub off as much as possible on the company’s future models.
