The vehicle as provided will be perfectly adequate for your journey. All Swiss main roads are kept open and well treated in winter, even if there is snow around.
The road route from Basel is either:
a) Basel - Bern- Spiez - Kandersteg - BLS car carrying train - Goppenstein - Visp - Täsch
b) Basel - Bern - Montreux - Visp - Täsch
Route b is 100% motorway apart from Visp - Täsch
The advantage of route b is that around Montreux you get a panoramic view of Lake Geneva from the elevated motorway and there is a rest area on that section as well
Visp - Täsch is a smaller road so an alternative is to park at Visp
Täsch is designed to cater for 1000s of visitors arriving by car, I doubt there will be a problem. I've never seen Täsch 'full' as there are acres of overflow areas seldom used.
