As German media report, the first man of the Catholic Church Pope Francis is now driving with hydrogen. The Toyota Mirai is a gift from Toyota to the Pope for the purpose of his Japanese trip this November. In his 2015 encyclical "Laudato si," the Pope stressed the importance of sustainability and environmental protection. Also with his vehicles.

The hydrogen car was adapted to the Pope's requirements and acts as a papamobile. Like all other cars of the Pope, it is painted white. The roof was removed and replaced by a partially glazed steel structure so the standing Pope can be chauffeured through the streets.

It is already the third car with alternative drive in the fleet of the holy chair. Already in July this year he received two smart fourfour with batteries as energy storage.
