Schwegler, Urs

NewRide, e'mobileSwitzerland

Born in 1953 in Sursee, Switzerland

Staff Editor: Please tell us something about your career and profession.
Urs Schwegler: I studied transportation engineering at the Swiss Federal Technology Institute of Zurich and have a long experience in the promotion of energy-efficient road vehicles. I am involved in NewRide, the Swiss promotion programme for electric two-wheelers. I participated in various international research projects of the EU and the IEA. I am a member of the management of e’mobile, the Swiss section of AVERE.

SE: When and how did you get involved in LEVs?
US: As a transportation engineer, I wrote a research report on the integration of LEV's into the existing urban traffic system. After that I was working on the setting up a competition for a Large Scale Fleet Test with Lightweight Electric Vehicles in a Swiss City (which became the Mendrisio project).

SE: What is your personal motivation to work in LEVs?
US: Actually, neither the industry nor the policy seem to be aware of the potential of LEV's, namely e-bikes and e-scooters, regarding an element for sustainable mobility. My mission is to get them together and set favourable conditions for accelerating the development and the market introduction of these vehicles.
