. The award is voted on by 30 international design experts, and there were 4,515 applicants this year for the Best of the Best award. 

The judges praised the Twizy saying: "Twizy is a highly convincing and expressive transportation solution for mobility in the near future. This vehicle impresses the target group both through easy handling and its sophisticated concept concerning ergonomics and safety."

“We are delighted to see the concept, design lines and functions of Twizy recognized by the red dot award. The way in which an object is expressed is fundamental, so we worked on general attitude from an early stage as well as on the design of the front end. The aim was to give Twizy an appeal that immediately reflects its light-hearted character,” said Eric Diemert, Design Director at Renault Sport.
