Pope Benedict Receives Two-Seater EV as Donation

Pope Benedict the Sixteenth has made it perfectly clear on several occasions that he fully supports EVs and a reduction of the Vatican’s gas emissions (the most recent Popemobile is a plug-in hybrid). Now, he can begin to apply the ‘green’ principles directly, as the Vatican has received a small two-seater EV called the ‘Zero’ as a donation, from a local manufacturer.
The company that gave away the car is Italian EV maker NWG, and they are very proud of their little city runabout which offers 140 km (86 miles) of range, a top speed of 100 km/h (62 mph), so it’s even legal to take it on the highways of Europe. It also looks rather funky and different - much better than the similarly-sized GeeWiz.

Now, having received the Pope’s blessing, NWG will flourish and become the world’s number one EV manufacturer - or not. Either way, the Zero looks like a thoroughly competent little EV, and one of the most important aspects surrounding it is that we wouldn’t mind being seen in one, as we actually quite like it.
