Pope Francis will get a Pedal-powered Popemobile this summer

Environmental Transports Association has designed a pedal-powered Popemobile for the people’s pontiff, Pope Francis. Already known for using the public transport as much as possible, Pope Francis will be carrying the idea of previous Pontiff Pope Benedict of having an Eco friendly all electric vehicle.

The world’s first pedal-powered Popemobile is expected to cost £175,000, which is half the amount of the Pope’s current car. Besides it will be silent and have zero emissions.
