Biography

Gilles Vidal has 28 years of experience in automotive design. He began his career in 1996 at PSA Group for the Citroën brand. He successively became head of design projects, creative team leader and then director of prospective and concept cars.

In 2009, he joined Peugeot in a similar role, before being appointed Director of Design for the brand in 2010. For 10 years, he leads the brand’s styling, during which time he redesigned a complete range of vehicles, created a team dedicated to Human Machine Interfaces (HMI) and, in 2012, founded the Peugeot Design Lab, a global design agency.

In November 2020, Gilles Vidal joined Renault Group and was appointed VP Design, Renault  Brand. He initiated a design that is both emotional and “Tech”, recently illustrated by Scénic Vision, a concept car that foreshadows the brand’s future, and Renault Rafale, a powerful illustration of the Renault brand’s new design language.

He also heads the Renault Design Center Latam (RDCL) in Brazil and the Renault Design Center in Seoul, South Korea. Both play a key role in the design of vehicles for international markets and contribute to the brand’s global projects.

Gilles Vidal is a member of the Renault Management Committee.

On November 1, 2023, Gilles Vidal becomes VP Design, Renault Brand & Ampere.
