DID YOU KNOW? Sustainability Drives our Work
Magna is making a positive impact on protecting the planet in many ways.
We’re helping to speed vehicle electrification through technological advancements. And we’re building environmentally friendly vehicles in our world-class manufacturing operations. Here is a closer look:
A SPECIAL RIDE FOR THE ENVIRONMENTAL POPE
We will build the first all-electric popemobile, a modified Fisker Ocean SUV, at our facility in Europe, another example of Magna’s commitment to supporting sustainable products.
The popemobile is the name given to a one-of-a-kind vehicle used to transport Pope Francis at public events. The special Fisker Ocean will feature a solar roof and an interior with carpets made from recycled plastic bottles recovered from the ocean.
The customized Ocean is a fitting choice for the pontiff who represents the 1.2 billion Roman Catholics in the world. Pope Francis, who issues frequent calls to protect “our common home,” is known as the “environmental pope” and takes his name from St. Francis, the patron saint of the environment.
The Fisker Ocean is set to roll off Magna’s assembly line in November 2022. Fisker Inc. said there are currently more than 16,000 reservation holders for the Ocean. It will be available in premium versions with such features as all-wheel-drive and Ultra High Range (approximately 350 miles).
