Renault Sponsors Grand Designs Live Event

Renault is proud to be the Official Automotive Sponsor of Grand Designs Live 2014 for both London (which took place in May) and Birmingham (October) shows – with discounted tickets available to all its social media followers.

Of interest to those in the market for making their home as environmentally conscious as possible, the Grand Designs event showcases many of the possibilities for both creating and improving new and existing homes. Solar panels, ground source heat pumps and more energy saving ideas are just some of the items on show which can help compliment the lifestyle of those with an electric or hybrid vehicle.

Renault will be showcasing its eye-catching small car line-up, including the seductive Paris-designed Clio, adventurous Captur Crossover, and 100% electric showstoppers ZOE and Twizy, the futuristic urban compact, at the big events later in the year.

As part of its new ‘Life Designed’ campaign, the shows at ExCeL and NEC which attract innovative and creative exhibitors and personalities from across the country are the perfect destination for design-conscious Renault.

VIPs and celebrities joining the thousands of consumers now booking their tickets will also benefit from Renault’s zero emission shuttle service in flagship electric model ZOE, which expertly blends stunning looks with intelligent innovation.

Mihai Bordeanu, Director, Marketing at Renault UK, said:

“We are proud to be Official Automotive Sponsor of Grand Designs Live 2014. We believe that great design isn’t merely just about looking good on the surface; it’s also about using its functionality to fit into your lifestyle. From the convenient hands-free keycard and touchscreen navigation, to our washable and removable seat covers. That’s why our cars aren’t just beautiful, they’re designed for life. Life is our inspiration. It’s what puts people at the heart of everything we do. And it’s a passion for life that dares us to imagine different, gives us our competitive spirit and drives us to be a champion of progress, whether it’s winning on the F1 track or pioneering the first electric vehicle range.”

Based on the Channel 4 TV series, and presented by design guru Kevin McCloud, the Birmingham Grand Designs Live event is from October 9th to 12th.
