BYTON appoints David Twohig as Chief Technical Officer

BYTON, the premium intelligent electric vehicle startup, has appointed David Twohig as Chief Technical Officer. Twohig’s new role gives him full responsibility for leading BYTON’s vehicle development from fundamental technology choices to the profitable application of those technologies to products, services, and processes.

He will have direct management responsibility for key engineering functions as powertrain, connectivity, autonomous driving, program management, and digital engineering.

Twohig has more than 26 years of international experience in automotive design and development. Before joining BYTON as Chief Vehicle Engineer in March 2018, David was Chief Engineer at Alpine, and Head of Vehicle Engineering at Renault Sport. Through his leadership and team efforts, he successfully developed the new Alpine A110, that spearheaded the rebirth of the Alpine brand.

From 2009 to 2013, David led the engineering team responsible for the Renault ZOE as the key pillar of Renault’s Zero Emissions program, and currently Europe’s best-selling BEV. He also steered the development of the first generation Nissan Qashqai, a highly profitable model for Nissan, launching the dominant compact SUV segment in Europe.
