Fisker Will Build The Next Popemobile

The Vatican’s first electric official transport will be delivered by Fisker next year


  • The decision was taken following a meeting between the Pope and Henrik Fisker.

  • The vehicle will be based on the upcoming Ocean SUV.


This decision by the Vatican to order its newest popemobile from EV-maker Fisker demonstrates its concern for the environment and future generations. This will be a global first in Papal Transport.

In a private audience with Pope Francis, Fisker co-founders Henrik Fisker and Dr. Geeta Gupta-Fisker, all have agreed to develop the first all-electric vehicle for the Holy See.

“I got inspired reading that Pope Francis is very considerate about the environment and the impact of climate change for future generations,” says Henrik Fisker. “The interior of the Fisker Ocean papal transport will contain a variety of sustainable materials, including carpets made from recycled plastic bottles from the ocean.”

The new popemobile will be based on the upcoming new Fisker Ocean SUV. This vehicle’s spacious cabin will support a large, modern, all-glass cupola, offering accessibility and visibility for Pope Francis to greet the faithful. Production of the Ocean is set to begin on November 17th, 2022, and will be priced at $37,499 US.

Fisker plans to deliver the new Popemobile later next year.
