Vatican and VW Group ink deal for electric fleet


The Vatican signed an agreement with Volkswagen Group to replace the city-state’s entire car fleet with full-electric vehicles by 2030. From the beginning of 2024, the automaker will deliver about 40 EV models from its ID family, ranging from the ID3 to the ID4 and ID5, VW said. The governor’s office of the world’s smallest state gave no financial details of the deal in a statement but said would involve medium- and long-term leasing of VW and Skoda cars. It said the “partnership accord” with the VW Group was one of the ways the 108-acre sovereign city-state aims to reach a long-term goal of becoming carbon neutral and relying exclusively on renewable energy. The statement said the Vatican would build a network of electric charging stations inside its walls and at its properties in Rome. Francis, 86, has made protection of the environment a hallmark of his papacy and often has called for a transition away from fossil fuels.
