He's pro-environment but he's more pro-humility than anything else. For a while he cruised the streets of Vatican City in a donated 30 year old Renault with 186k on the odometer.

According to the article, Jochen Wermuth tried to get him into a Tesla. The Leaf is a pretty humble car, especially compared to a Tesla!

If His Holiness rolled up in a Nissan Leaf I'd probably spit my coffee everywhere. Efficient emissions?! Safer for the environment? No way!
