If you like your electric car, you have at least one thing in common with Leonardo DiCaprio. Leo is out doing interviews about his new movie (Revolutionary Road, if you don't know) and told the Daily Mail that his new Tesla Roadster is "an unbelievable drive," adding: "It's scarily fast and it all happens with the flip of a switch, unlike a piston-driven engine that needs to build up momentum." Well, duh.
With his new zero-emission electric car, Leo can continue to work his green hipster cred and eat it, too. When he's not out driving, he said he'd rather work on getting governments "to implement environmental policy" than tell people to put in better light bulbs or drive a hybrid. Well, sure, if you're trading in a Prius for a Roadster, who needs hybrid technology?
