Renault gives Pope Benedict XVI a Kangoo Z.E. EV

Renault Chairman Carlos Ghosn has presented Pope Benedict XVI with his most recent addition to his automotive collection, the custom Kangoo Z.E.

This is likely the most green vehicle the pope now owns, as it is powered by a lithium-ion battery and electric motor that produce 60hp, with a 106 mile range.

French coachbuilder Gruau helped create the custom Kangoo Z.E., which is coated in white paint with Papal graphics and comes with electrically folding seats, a retractable roof and rear-hinged doors.
