Volkswagen is supporting the Vatican City State (VCS) in its transition towards sustainable mobility. At the beginning of 2024, the company will deliver just under 40 fully electric models from its ID. family, ranging from the ID.3 to the ID.4 and ID.5.

The vehicles are part of the decarbonisation strategy of the VCS, aiming to make the Vatican fleet climate-neutral by 2030.

Imelda Labbé, Member of the Board of Management for Sales, Marketing and After-Sales at Volkswagen Passenger Cars and Dr. Christian Dahlheim, Chairman of the Board of Management of Volkswagen Financial Services AG, personally handed over the first two electric vehicles to the Vatican, two ID.3 Pro Performance models.

Volkswagen Financial Services is supporting the project.

The VCS is committed to the implementation of innovative and sustainable solutions that make it possible to reduce the impact of human activities on the environment in order to protect the planet.

The State’s ‘Ecological Conversion 2030’ aims to reduce the COfootprint of the state’s vehicle fleet.

Imelda Labbé says: “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.”

Dr. Christian Dahlheim adds: “We are delighted to support the Vatican in this important project. This is something very special for us and shows that we are absolutely competitive with our mobility solutions.”

The Volkswagen Passenger Cars brand is present in more than 140 markets worldwide and produces vehicles at 29 locations in twelve countries.
