Electric for the first time
As a partner of Dutch Design Week 2018, Renault will provide 45 units of the 100% electric Renault ZOE to be utilised for free transportation service. This year will be the first time using completely emission-free ‘Design Rides’. Approximately 18,000 rides will be made. The charging of these cars will happen at one of the largest mobile charging squares in Europe, which was installed especially by Renault in Eindhoven, developed by Van der Sijs techniek. With forty charging stations available, each Renault ZOE will be charged after event-hours. The Renault ZOE has a driving range of 300 kilometres at full charge.
Renault Design Rides
The 100% electric ‘Design Rides’ were handed over to the eighty DDW volunteers, and Martijn Paulen (director DDW) together with John Jorritsma, mayor of Eindhoven. This makes Renault and Dutch Design Week ready to transport visitors of the event between the different locations.
Visitors can make use of the free taxi-service (daily from 11.00 to 20.00) to visit the more than 100 DDW-locations. Hop on at one of these taxi ranks: Lichtplein, Stadhuisplein, Klokgebouw and Piet Hein Eek.
