The Pope Gets An Electric Mobile

The Pope might be more known for his Popemobile but he will soon have to add to his collection an electric one. Renault will give the pontiff an electric vehicle.

Renault is donating two exclusive all-electric vehicles presented to His Holiness Benedict XVI especially built to meet the Pope's mobility needs. The modified Kangoo Maxi Z.E., part of the company’s Zero Emission initiative was developed in conjunction with French coachbuilder Gruau. The French carmaker also donated another electric vehicle to the Corps of Gendarmerie of Vatican City, the holy city’s guards. Is the Vatican turning green?
