The next popemobile will be an EV made by American startup Fisker, the first all-electric vehicle for the supreme pontiff, the company said Friday. The custom-made Ocean SUV will be designed to protect the pope while also allowing him to be visible to crowds and will feature sustainably-sourced elements, including carpets made from plastic bottles recovered from the ocean. Co-founders, and spouses, Henrik Fisker and Geeta Gupta-Fisker met last Thursday with Pope Francis, who has made addressing climate change and protecting the environment a key part of his papacy. “I got inspired reading that Pope Francis is very considerate about the environment and the impact of climate change for future generations,” Henrik Fisker said in a statement.
