An emission 100% sustainable development solutions, in an electric van Volkswagen

Aujourd’hui – the programme proposed by RTS, takes a look at sustainable development solutions in French-speaking Switzerland. All this on board Greta, a T2 electric van volkswagen equipped with solar panels on the roof.

The pitch of the programme is simple. Marc Muller is an energy engineer and a convinced ecologist. His sidekick, Jonas Schneiter is a journalist and rather sceptical on the subject of sustainable development when it comes to losing in comfort…

Marc’s mission is to demonstrate to Jonas that sustainable development initiatives rhyme with comfort, performance and improved quality of life. 

The duo is therefore setting off on the roads of French-speaking Switzerland on board a T2 electric van volkswagen, transformed into a solar-powered electric vehicle, to discover positive initiatives.

During the two summer months, the team stops every day to discover a new positive initiative in favour of sustainable development.

An episode devoted to sustainable development mobility

In this episode, the team looks at sustainable development mobility. Electric cars, hydrogen-powered cars, shared vehicles… The two columnists take Thierry, an Auto-Ecole instructor who teaches eco-driving, on board. 

They set off to discover a hydrogen station, a new district under construction which practises car-sharing, and finally on the Lignières circuit to test 3 competition vehicles. Ferrari petrol, BMW hybrid, and Tesla 100% electric of 700 hp, the three drivers will race aboard the 3 models. We’ll let you guess which vehicle wins the prize…
