Peter Schreyer is new Kia Design Director

Peter Schreyer will be the next Design Director at Kia Motors. He has worked at Audi for more than 25 years, and created the original Audi TT.


Peter Schreyer first joined Audi in 1978 for a student stage: in 1994 he was the design responsible for one of the most acclaimed cars of the latest years, the original Audi TT.

He left an important mark on the design language at Audi, that still distiguishes all the brand’s models.

He had joined Volkswagen in 2002, and according to some insiders he was looking for a different job for more than two years.
