The “Ecological Conversion 2023” program is being discussed and mobility is in the center of attention. Moving towards sustainability solutions and by 2030 make entire fleets carbon neutral. 

“The electrification of fleets is becoming increasingly important across the globe. The fact that Vatican employees will now also be among our ID. drivers in the future is a great target and honor for our brand and underscores the attractiveness of our all-electric ID. models,” said Imelda Labbé during the vehicle handover in Vatican City.

The Vatican City State had many options when moving into electric mobility, Volkswagen’s electric capability stood above the rest. The German automaker is taking the electric market by storm. Offering the most advanced vehicles, Volkswagen’s Financial Services will supply the Vatican State. The first two electric vehicles were personally handed over by Imelda Labbè, member of the Board of Management for sales. The first two vehicles delivered were the ID.3 Pro Performance models. 

The Volkswagen plan is to strategically convert its vehicles to fully electric, but it doesn’t stop there.
