For several years Renault has been implementing its design strategy. It is best illustrated by the “daisy of the life stages”. The central element of the strategy is a man and his needs and the design is based on the simple, sensuous and warm forms.
The brand engineers Renault have already made their first autonomic car design. The prototype NEXT TWO, presented in 2014 shows the Renault vision of the car with the autopilot which thanks to the combination of the automatic drive and mobile technology allows to recognize the surrounding. Currently, the test solutions are in three “Renault ESPACE Autonomous Drive demonstrators”. The company Renault plans to introduce the autonomic car on the market in 2020.
