Alpmobil provides a network of electric vehicle terminals – connected to public transport routes – from which tourists can start excursions or holidays and discover Switzerland’s principal Alpine Cantons. This service is all the more sustainable in that the vehicles are powered by locally produced hydroelectric energy. “elektroautos” can be booked via the internet on Alpmobil’s website (only available in German) and it is also possible to book accommodation on the chosen route. The renting prices are very competitive (63 Francs for a day, so around 43€): these clean vehicles are thus a very good solution to discover the Swiss Alpine Cantons.
