Hyundai in collaboration with Discovery.

Hyundai is making the world a better – and cleaner – place. From personal EVs to commercial fuel cell trucks and ETCR, Hyundai is proving that sustainability can go hand in hand with reasonable costs, beautiful design, and powerful engineering.

In this documentary short series produced in collaboration with Discovery, Hyundai brand ambassador and environmental enthusiast Bertrand Piccard, who has spent his entire life pushing boundaries, sets out on a new journey to explore the future of clean mobility. He guides the viewer around Europe, to discover and drive the vehicles of today as well as look into the plans for tomorrow to understand how close we are to leaving our dependency on fossil fuels behind and striking out on a completely clean path.

Episode 3: The thrill.

In the third episode of A Better Way, Bertrand Piccard takes a trip to Monte Carlo, the spiritual home of motorsport and home to one of the most celebrated street racing courses in the world. Although racing is usually connected with loud noises, car fumes, and air pollution, Piccard is here to investigate how electrification and hydrogen are paving the way for more sustainable racing. In Monaco, he speaks with other pioneers who are pushing to normalise electric cars, especially on the racetrack. As his exciting trip comes to an end for now, the viewers are given an encouraging message: “You see that the world is changing. Clean mobility is not far away in the future,” says Swiss adventurer and environmental enthusiast Bertrand Piccard. “You have batteries, you have clean hydrogen, it allows you to have silence, efficiency, and a lot of enthusiasm. If you want to explore this new world, you just need passion and a pioneering spirit.”

Episode 2: The reality.

In this episode, we follow Bertrand Piccard to Gösgen, a small town in the heart of Switzerland that is leading the energy revolution. Gösgen is the epicentre of a new business case that aims to make hydrogen mobility a daily reality, from production of “green” hydrogen to having fuel cell trucks in the commercial transport industry. During his journey, Bertrand Piccard speaks with three other pioneers and explores the steps needed for the shift to a hydrogen society and its huge environmental impact. He also gets to experience first-hand what it is like to drive a hydrogen-powered truck. Following this ride, Bertrand Piccard leaves the viewers with this thought: It’s not about the technology, but rather the mind-sets and pioneering spirits that will allow a hydrogen future to take off.

Episode 1: The vision.

In our first episode, we introduce Bertrand Piccard as a pioneering spirit, learning about his history and the vision for clean mobility he and Hyundai share.
