Renault Kangoo Z.E. joins the collection Pope Benedict XVI

As most of us know already, Pope Benedict XVI has a very interesting collection. To be more precise, we are talking about a car collection that includes very diverse cars. In the garage of his holiness, rest models like German BMW X5 and Volkswagen Phaeton. Apparently, the new model on the list is one that takes better care of the environment. The French model we are talking about is the Kangoo Z.E., built together with Gruau, a French coachbuilder. It is white on the inside and in the pictures we can see the Papal graphics. The engineers have also offered electrically folding steps, a retractable roof and rear hinged doors. Of course an exterior upgrade must come with an interior one as well. The European specialists have improved the inside of the Renault Kangoo Z.E., a model which comfortably seats four people. The new car receives power from a lithium-ion battery which enables an electric motor to produce up to 60 horsepower. The new Popemobile has a range of 170 km on a single charge. This will be the model the Pope will use to travel to his summer residence. It has as base the Kangoo Maxi Z.E. and it is 4.6 meters long and 1.8 meters wide. In terms of design, the new Z.E. is a lot similar to the first model, even though its blue color has a white and yellow stripe along each flank. The two cars are real proof of de dedication and experience of the French engineers when it comes to the electric vehicle sector. It is a manufacturer and leader that stands at the service of the sustainable development massage of the Vatican and of course, His Holiness. The Pope tries to be as close as possible to the environment and this is why, he encourages sustainable development. Electric vehicles bring a little help to the process mankind has started to save Creation.
