The SVP Federal Council relies on a Mercedes

Rösti doesn’t want to know anything about Sommaruga’s electric limousine

In the new year, the Federal Councilors are mainly traveling in Mercedes company vehicles. And with a combustion engine. Only Foreign Minister Ignazio Cassis occasionally uses electricity.


As environment minister, Simonetta Sommaruga last had an electric VW as a company vehicle.

Shortly before she announced her resignation, the then SP Environment Minister Simonetta Sommaruga (62) once again made an energy policy statement. She exchanged the electric sedan from Tesla that Doris Leuthard (59) had taken over for a much smaller vehicle – a Volkswagen ID.3 Pro S. She recently had herself chauffeured to performances, events and visits with the new and more energy-efficient e-model. This made her the only incumbent Federal Councilor to opt for an electric car.

But the time of pure e-state bodies in the Federal Council is now over, as the “SonntagsZeitung” reports. The new Energy Minister Albert Rösti (55) didn’t want to know anything about Sommaruga’s electric VW. Instead, the SVP magistrate can be driven around in a Mercedes – like most of his government friends.
