Green Car Design/Review 05

Welcome to our fifth edition of Green Car Design/Review. You may notice some visual changes; I hope you like them. We have made every effort to reflect what and whom we represent as a magazine and ethos while creating a simple and beautiful layout for your reading pleasure. We have also learned a lot about ourselves. The look and feel of this edition hints at changes to follow on our website and related services...stay tuned!

I am truly amazed at the variety of stories we can bring you as well as our personal, informed perspective and delicious images. Gracing our pages this time is none other than wild child Laurens van den Acker who, after a successful step change from the helm at Mazda to a Renault brand in transition – must surely be considered a guru of the automotive design scene today. Richard brings us green tech from the quiet revolution that is HALOsonic, Guy Bird reports from Shanghai and Eric Gallina visits Toyota on the Champs Élysées, investigating the deconstructed ME.WE concept in the process. McLaren has uncharacteristically opened its doors to reveal the design and engineering story of the immaculate P1, whilst the Royal College of Art’s graduating class show they are ready for industry with a unique installation commissioned by Jaguar at this year’s Clerkenwell Design Week.

In short, we are here to spoil you with the latest and greenest stories in the automotive world...we hope we have succeeded!
