Pope Francis began his first full day in Mozambique on Thursday – his 31st trip abroad. But what was surprising to Anand Mahindra, Chairman of Mahindra Group, is that Pope travelled in the southern African nation in his company’s car.

Sharing a video on Twitter wherein Pope is travelling in a Mahindra KUV100 car, he wrote, “His Holiness, the Pope travelling in a Mahindra KUV100 in Mozambique. A moment of pride & immense honour for all of us. Our distributor in Maputo supported the Pope’s Feed the Project & earned this honour. You always Rise when you do good…”

In another tweet, he shared some throwback pictures of Pope’s visit in Mumbai for the Eucharistic Congress in 1964 when he rode in an open-top Mahindra UV.
