The theme of Dutch Design Week 2019 is ‘If not now, then when?’. In a world of rapid urbanisation and 60 to 70 percent of the population living in cities around 2030, transporting people sustainably and affordably poses a great challenge. The theme perfectly matches the Renault vision that future mobility will be electric, shared and autonomous.
In support of this view Renault is showcasing three concept cars which are setting foot on Dutch ground for the first time. The EZ-GO, EZ-PRO and EZ-ULTIMO form a trilogy, expressing Renault’s future vision for urban mobility in 2030 at the Klokgebouw in Eindhoven.
Renault ZOE Design Ride
To reaffirm its leading position, Renault provides 35 units of the new Renault ZOE as ‘Renault ZOE Design Ride’. It is the first time that the further enhanced ZOE can be seen in the Netherlands. With the Design Rides – each showcasing a matching theme and design on top of the car – visitors are transported for free between over 100 different DDW locations. Last year the Renault ZOE ‘Design Rides’ shuttled a staggering 60,000 visitors.
Lectures Laurens van den Acker
Former DDW ambassador Laurens van den Acker, Executive Vice President Corporate Design at Renault, will be giving various lectures on design and future mobility at DDW on 19 and 20 October. Subsequently, Renault organises ‘Design the Car of the Future’. In this design contest, Renault invites everyone in the Netherlands to share their vision of the ideal car of the future. More details will be published later, via Renault Nederland’s social media channels and on designdeautovandetoekomst.nl
