(VIDEO) Renault creates the first electric Popemobile


Pope Benedict XVI has received a very unique sample of the Renault Kangoo Maxi ZE specifically designed for him, it keeps the original motor 44kW or 60hp for a range of 170km.

The coachbuilder Gruau took care of the modifications, the Pope’s Kangoo welcomes four passengers in a comfort worth a private jet – mostly the rear passengers with their specific seats. The other exclusive options include a sunroof, removable side windows and finally electric sliding doors with and electrically folding door steps.

Another Kangoo also modified by Gruau has been donated to the Pope's guards, the two vehicles will be used in the Holiday Residence of Castel Gandolfo.

 “This donation to His Holiness is a means for Renault to reaffirm its strong and durable commitment to sustainable development and respect for the environment,” Carlos Ghosn, Chairman and CEO of the Renault Group.
