Renault will bring a new concept car at the Triennale of Milano

Article by Christian A., on March 21, 2013

At next month’s Triennale Design Museum in Milan, a new concept car will be unveiled by Renault and industrial designer Ross Lovegrove. It’s likely that this design will affect the next Twingo, which is twinned with the upcoming Smart ForFour. This concept will push forward with the newest design strategy from Renault, initiated by Laurens van der Acker in 2010.

By making use of the 'life cycle' as an overall theme, its individual concepts have sought to signify six different stages and experiences of human life.

Under this ethos, the DeZir was the first concept made, reflecting the 'falling in love' stage of its lives. The R-Space and Frendzy concepts that came later had reflected 'family' and 'work' phases that people experience.

This latest partnership between Renault and Ross Lovegrove is expected to be the concept for the 'play' phase of the design language.

Axel Breun, Renault's design director for concept and show cars, said that the production Twingo will make use of the play concept’s elements to become appealing, simple, and sporty. In addition, this car will use a rear-engined, rear-wheel-drive layout.

However, there aren’t many details available. The final concept, which is inspired by 'wisdom', is predicted to be a preview for the new Espace.

With regards to the newest project, Renault said that it aims to unveil "nature's underlying blueprints and transfer them into a new design language.” After the Renault/Ross Lovegrove concept will be displayed on April 8, it will be brought to the Milan show, which opens on April 9.
