A Mahindra Car Spotted Driving Pope Francis In Africa

Anand Mahindra proudly shared a short clip on his Twitter, in which the Pope can be seen traveling in a Mahindra car when visiting Mozambique.

Indian automobile companies have been expanding their presence to international markets. For those who call themselves Indian car enthusiasts, spotting a Made-In-Indian car has always been a moment of great delight. Now, just imagine seeing one with the Pope inside.

This is exactly what happened. And the moment was captured and was shared by Anand Mahindra himself on Twitter. In the short clip, Pope Francis can be seen sitting inside a Mahindra KUV100.

The short clip was taken in Mozambique which is a destination belongs to the Africa tour of the pontiff. The visit’s goal is to put emphasis on problems like poverty, migration and climate change as well as the importance of Africa for the Roman Catholic church’s future.

In his tweet, Anand Mahindra described the moment as full of “pride and immense honour,” especially for the Mahindra team. It was Mahindra distributor in Mozambique who made the entire thing possible by supporting the Pope’s anti-poverty project and earned this honor.

There is another tweet that mentioned how this isn’t the first time for the company to provide a Popemobile. Before, the company provided an open-top Mahindra UV when the Pope paid a visit to Mumbai on the occasion of the 1964 Eucharistic Congress.

Again, Mahindra vehicles have gained their spotlight on international platforms. In 2018, in the widely popular online game PUBG, users spotted a Mahindra tractor. Within a day, the sight went viral on social media.
