Renault has announced the 10 shortlisted entries from a student design competition to tie in with the launch of the Twizy electric vehicle.
Students throughout the UK have visited www.designatwizy.co.uk to let their creative juices flow in the hope of scooping the top prize of £9,000 towards their university fees.
The shortlisted designs have been selected by a Renault-appointed judging panel of industry experts: Laurens Van Den Acker (Renault design chief), Thierry Sybord (managing director of Renault UK) and Quentin Willson (motoring journalist and TV personality).
The shortlisted designs, ranging from neon digital-graffiti to monochromatic jungle-inspired prints, were chosen by the judges for their originality, marketability and of course, overall style. Public votes are now being cast until March 30 via www.designatwizy.co.uk, which showcases the designs from each of the finalists. The winner and two runners up will be announced on April 16.
