A Green Popemobile?

the Vatican has confirmed details of Pope Benedict XVI’s newest eco-vehicle. The Pope will be riding a custom-made M-Class plug-in hybrid based on the Mercedes Vision S500 plug-in hybrid.

The Vatican said that they opted for a plug-in hybrid, versus an all-electric popemobile for safety reasons (they wanted a car that could accelerate quick enough in case of an emergency).
