“#Dear EV makers, the pope doesn’t need any more electric popemobiles”
It’s part of Pope Francis’ commitment to turn the Vatican carbon neutral by 2050, as he announced in December 2020. The Church also plans to increase the number of charging stations, especially around several of the major basilicas in Rome.
