Pope gets new popemobile

Swedish popemobile for Pope Benedict XVI

The delivery of the keys to the Pope has taken place last week in the Vatican, during a short ceremony after the Papal Audience.

The Volvo XC90 delivered to the Pope - and fitted for His personal use - is a V8 version. It is a dark blue XC90 with light interiors.

Since its debut, the Volvo XC90 has set good standards among SUV when it comes to safety, in all driving conditions and on any surface.

The AWD system (all-wheel drive) allows the car good off-road behaviour, while ROPS System helps the car avoiding roll-over or reducing consequences of that type of accident.

"We are absolutely happy and proud of the opportunity we had to give a car to the Pope. Safety has always been a no-compromise must for Volvo; no doubt, our strong commitment to safeguard lives could not get a higher and more touching recognition", said Pascal Bellemans, President Volvo Auto Italia.
