Together with Procap Schweiz, a self-help organization by and for people with disabilities, the company has set itself the goal of achieving inclusion through mobility and thus strengthening social interaction.
The Porsche brand stands for making dreams of mobility come true. For the Porsche Taycan, the tour across the Alps was child's play. For people with disabilities, however, the numerous hiking trails through the fantastically beautiful Swiss landscape are less easy to navigate. Independent mobility is often not possible for them there. Through the cooperation project with Procap Schweiz, Porsche makes it possible for less mobile people to experience the beauty of their surroundings.
Porsche not only supports the project financially. It also contributes knowledge and experience to specific sub-projects, such as the trekking wheelchair. The expertise in the areas of electro mobility and lightweight construction helps Procap Schweiz to further develop an electrically powered trekking wheelchair.
Procap Schweiz is the largest membership association by and for people with disabilities in Switzerland. The self-help organization has around 23,000 members. Procap is already active in the field of accessible hiking and has so far created 78 obstacle-free hiking trails for people with mobility impairments and also visually impaired people in collaboration with SchweizMobil and local sponsors.
Within the framework of the cooperation, further obstacle-free routes for people with and without disabilities are planned. Tandem partners are also to be found for joint accompanied hiking and the electric trekking wheelchair is to be further developed. In addition, the focus is on mutual learning to raise awareness. Last but not least, further hiking trails are to be made accessible for blind and visually impaired people by means of voice guidance and GPS data via an app.
The Taycan continues on its world tour via the Vosges Mountains to France.
