Default Renault Radiance Truck Concept

Ok, it's a truck....but it's still a Renault.
The exterior looks striking and makes me wonder what stops truck manufacturer applying those cool design ideas, especially as here they don't look too "out of this world".Dunno,i guess the truck market is not really focused on those cosmetic issues.....

On the other hand the interior looks dreadful compare to the futuristic exterior: just a sorry mass of dull grey plastic........

It's not that the interior is bad, just common-looking.
I expected lots of funky buttons, switches and lights when i first saw the exterior and hoped that it looked more "butch".

Love the exterior still.

Well i can't imagine this interior making it into such a truck but it's the simplicity of it plus the high tech dials that make me think it is not common, lol

Point taken, for me i think it's mainly the cheap-looking light grey plastic used like there's no tomorrow that makes me rejects it and the extreme simplicity is somehow a turn-off in my case: i think it's down to a security feeling where it would feel cosier, safer and cocoon-like if the dashboard was bulkier and full of "stuff", hard to explain.
