Hybrid Popemobile will further Vatican's commitment to green technology
CWN - June 20, 2011
Mercedes-Benz is making a new "Popemobile" that will rely on an electric motor to transport the Pontiff around Rome, in another step toward green technology at the Vatican.
The new vehicle will be a hybrid, with a gas engine that can provide extra speed in case of emergencies. The battery-operated electric motor will give the car a range of over 15 miles.
