Pope Francis is being escorted around Washington, DC in a Fiat. After being greeted by President Barack Obama at Andrews Air Force Base, Pope Francis climbs into the back of a black 500L. The Pope then rides away in what is now being called the popemobile. with the windows down waving to fans.

There hasn’t been an official statement from Fiat about the popemobile, but the brand recently tweeted “His Holiness knows how to make an entrance.”  

The Fiat 500L has a starting price of less than $20,000, with the top of the line model priced at $24,695. Although Fiat sales in North America are nothing to write home about, we predict an increase very soon.
