Fisker Plans Popemobile

Los Angeles-based electric vehicle developer Fisker Inc. said Friday that it plans to build a new, all-electric vehicle for Pope Francis, after a visit to Vatican City by Fisker’s co-founders, Henrik Fisker and Dr. Geeta Gupta-Fisker. According to the company, it plans to convert a Fisker Ocean into a vehicle for the Pope, including what it describes as a “modern, all-glass cupola” to be used for greeting the faithful. Fisker said it plans to deliver the retrofitted Fisker Ocean to the Pope next year.
