Pope Benedict XVI is making a sustainable statement in his request to have a solar-powered Popemobile. Affirming his interest in eco-friendly practices, the head of the Catholic church is concerned with connecting with the earth as he connects with his followers.

The solar-powered Popemobile will be yet another specially fitted element on the religious leader's custom-made Mercedes-Benz. To top off the bullet-proof body of the car, the Pope is wondering if designers can begin to consider constructing an electric vehicle as well.
