Pawan Goenka, Managing Director of Mahindra and Mahindra Limited took to Twitter to share a video of Pope Francis riding a Mahindra KUV100 in the Mozambique capital of Maputo.

Our distributor in Maputo supported the Pope`s Feed the Project & earned this honour. You always Rise when you do good."

His tweet read, "We have been honoured to provide the ‘Popemobile’ once before. When the Pople visited Mumbai for the Eucharistic Congress in 1964 he rode in an open-top Mahindra UV.
