The motorsport with no petrol – cars powered purely by electricity. The Formula E race in Bern, Switzerland. Is the sport just advertising space for the big auto companies? Or is it actually the path to a green future?
Formula E is also a competition for the technology of tomorrow, a contest in which Switzerland has always been among the frontrunners. We went to see the first race held in Bern in over 65 years, accompanying Switzerland’s best driver, Sebastien Buemi, at his first event at home. We also went on the road with the Swiss start-up Microlino, looking for solutions for the transport of tomorrow. What does sustainability mean beyond a label that some companies like to give themselves and what could mobility look like in the world to come? Who is leading the race for a green future?
