Pope Receives Opel Ampera-e: First Step Towards CO2 Free Vatican

9.06.2017
Company: Opel Southeast Europe LLC

Opel will contribute to the ambitious goal of the Vatican City to become the first CO2 free country in the world thanks to renewable energy sources and electrical mobility. Opel CEO Dr. Karl-Thomas Neumann met his Holiness Pope Francis on the sidelines of the conference “Laudato Sì: the Sustainability of Communication and Innovation” and presented him with the keys to a brand new Opel Ampera-e.

We are proud that we as Opel can contribute to the ambitious goals of the Vatican City. Our new Ampera-e will make electric mobility feasible for everyday use without any compromises,” said Opel CEO Dr. Karl-Thomas Neumann.

The conference, which brought together representatives of institutions, entrepreneurs, experts and opinion leaders, addressed key environmental sustainability issues including questions on future mobility. During the conference, the Vatican, Opel and Italian energy company Enel pledged to work on a sustainable mobility program for the city state.

The Opel Ampera-e redefines electro-mobility with its electric range of 520 km (based on NEDC) – at least 100 km of additional range more than its nearest segment rival currently on the road.
