Opel to deliver an Ampera-e model to Pope Francesco
On the sidelines of the Conference "Laudato Sì: Sustainability Between Communication and Innovation," Opel's CEO, Karl-Thomas Neumann, delivered a unit of the Ampera-e electric to the Holy Father Pope Francesco.
The German carmaker will thus contribute to the Vatican's goal of becoming the first CO2 Free State thanks to renewable energy sources and electric mobility.
"Our new Ampera-e will make the zero-emission mobility possible for uncompromising daily use," Neumann said. Ampera-e reaches over 520 km of range in the Nedc cycle, about 100 km more than the best competitor in the same segment.
During the conference, the Vatican, Opel and Enel pledged to work on a sustainable mobility program for the Vatican City.
