Towards clean mobility. What about private drivers in all this?

In France and particularly on the Côte d’Azur, to make the energy transition as successful as possible and to respect the environment, the trend is going towards clean mobility. Electric vehicles, bicycles and scooters are in the spotlight and cities are adapting to offer appropriate solutions. In the city of Nice, for example, numerous bicycle paths have sprung up here and there.

Difficulties to connect the whole coast

Most private chauffeurs drive cars with an internal combustion engine¬ (nearly 90%). It is also important in this sector to respect a certain standing, which means generally rather luxurious vehicles with a high level of a comfort.
