ŠKODA AUTO is providing Pope Francis with two ŠKODA Enyaq iVs for the duration of his visit to Slovakia from 12 to 15 September. The two all-electric SUVs have been adapted according to the Vatican’s wishes. In addition, two ŠKODA Karoqs will accompany the pontiff on his journey. Via a dedicated website, greetings can be addressed to the Pope that will be displayed virtually in his car.

From 12 to 15 September 2021, Pope Francis will be visiting Slovakia at the invitation of President Zuzana Čaputová. During his stay, ŠKODA AUTO will be making two Enyaq iVs and two Karoqs available to the Pontiff. For this occasion, the Enyaq iVs have been adapted according to the Vatican’s specifications. To make it easier to see the Pontiff, clear glass windows in the rear of the vehicle have replaced the standard tinted side windows. Chrome standard holders for the Vatican flag are mounted on the front wing of the passenger side and the official logo of the papal visit can be seen on the exterior mirror housings. To make exiting the car more comfortable, an additional handle was also added at the request of the Vatican. All cars are painted in black metallic and have black interiors.

I'd of thought it should be bullet proof as well.

They are not tinted as standard- although this Enyaq possibly had the Convenience Pack fitted, which would normally include tinted windows.

You'd have thought that he'd be in a White one, not black.

Obviously a Devil worshipper on the side!.
