On 9 February 2018, the German Design Council awarded Renault Trucks a German Design Award in the Transport category for its special T High Edition series. This prize rewards the aesthetics of this special series, which showcases the expressive design of the Renault Trucks T, flagship of the manufacturer's long-distance range.
The French manufacturer Renault Trucks has received a German Design Award from the German Design Council. The official ceremony was held at the Ambiente international trade fair in Frankfurt on 9 February 2018. This prize rewards Renault Tracks for the design of its special T High Edition series.
The Renault Trucks T is an iconic truck with a design that stands out for three key elements, namely a trapezoidal cabin, a windscreen tilted by 12 degrees and a pi-shaped front. Its atypical looks are showcased in this special T High Edition by black paintwork, aluminium hubs, carbon-look surfaces and fine red lines that echo the red of the door handles.
Hervé Bertrand, Design Director at Renault Trucks told us, "We are very proud to receive this prize. The Renault Trucks T is a truck with a modern design that offers maximum comfort. Initially there were a few misgivings about its innovative design, but it has now been recognized thanks to this prize."
The Renault Truck T High Edition, which was presented in Germany for the first time at the IAA fair in 2016, had already clinched second place for the "Young Professionals Truck Award 2017", awarded by young truck drivers. The German Design Award recognises innovative products and projects in the field of Germany and international design, together with their manufacturers and designers. The winners are selected by a jury of 43 renowned international experts. It is awarded by the German Design Council, a foundation created in 1953 at the initiative of the federal parliament.
