The TreZor, an all-electric GT, scoops the Festival Automobile International’s award for the Most Beautiful Concept Car of the Year 2016

The 32nd Festival Automobile International at the Hôtel des Invalides in Paris, France, has singled out the Renault TreZor as the Most Beautiful Concept Car of 2016. “I would like to thank the jury for this award which inspires us to continue to pursue our design strategy,” says Laurens van den Acker, SVP Corporate Design, Renault. “The TreZor’s powerful, sensuous lines pave the way for the styling and technologies that will be features of our upcoming models. It also marks the beginning of a new cycle of Renault concept cars.”

The TreZor's - in Renault's own words - warm, sensuous and refined lines along with a front end that incorporates a pair of signature C-shaped lights that will be the inspiration for the styling of the French brand's upcoming models.

The TreZor’s interior design, meanwhile, places the emphasis on driving enjoyment and features a large enveloping touchscreen display. This customisable, connected interface is paired to wood and leather, signifying its premium intent. Like the exterior, the interiors of future Renault models will take their inspiration from here, keeping up with the current refined styling trends and connected technologies.

“The jury decided this award should go to the TreZor because of the extreme beauty, sensuality and elegance it exudes,” observes Rémi Depoix, President of the Festival Automobile International. “It is the epitome of a concept car and we were notably won over by the cohesion of its overall design and the attention that has been paid to the details. It is a fine creative work which, we hope, will inspire Renault’s future road going models.”
