Renault is introducing the new Grand Scenic today, so we’re going to take this opportunity to show some sketches that were made by the Renault design team during the development of the new Scenic, a team headed by Agneta Dahlgren, Groupe Renault’s Head of Design for C-Segment and Electric Vehicles, who, incidentally, was named Woman of the Year 2016 by WAVE (Women and Vehicles in Europe) last week.
