Live from the launch: Renault Wind

Car manufacturers have come up with some bizarre names for their vehicles in the past, but there is often a reason behind it.

But the reason Renault has given for naming its new supermini convertible the Wind is that they wanted it to be an international name. Apparently being 'in the wind' (or 'dans le vent') in France means you are trendy, but Renault reckons international buyers wouldn't take to a car called the 'Vent'.
