Pope Benedict XVI Wants An Electric Popemobile
Spokespeople for Pope Benedict XVI have made it clear that the Pope wants an electric Popemobile, the only caveat is that no one has offered to make him one yet. Currently there are no mass-produced electric SUVs although Tesla is building 2,000 RAV4s for Toyota over the next 2 years, it would be a move of PR genius for them to make a white one and send it off to his holiness in Rome. Talk about product placement.
Pope Benedict XVI is becoming well-known for his green credentials having recently installed solar-cells on roofs in the Vatican as well as making concerted efforts to encourage sustainable energy.
